CuttleBug Challenge - Gate Fold Cards

















This weeks CuttleBug Blog challenge is Gate Fold cards. Normally I sitck to A2 sized cards, so it's always great to be challenged a bit. My Gate Fold is 5" Square when closed. I used a piece of 5" x 10" Chocolate Chip card stock, and scored 2-1/2" from each end to create the Gate Fold. Layered on each panel is a piece of Ballet Blue, with a piece of Creamy Caramel, that was embossed using the CuttleBug Distressed Stripes folder. After embossing, I sponged on some Soft Suede ink to highlight the embossing. To create the center panel, I used the Pastel Detailing Technique, the beautiful image is from Cornish Heritage Farms Thomas Kinkade Series.


Details:
Stamps - Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink - Black Archival, Soft Suede, Versamark
Card Stock - Chocolate Chip, Ballet Slue, White, Creamy Caramel, Black
Other - SAMJ, Pastels, Sponge Dauber, Big Shot, Distressed Stripes CuttleBug Folder
