Okay, so this Gatefold Sun/Friendship card is for two challenges: Cuttlebug Challenges Be Inspired #42and the new Ready-Steady-Stamp challenge blog.
- use a triangle
- the color yellow
- the sun
- use acetate
- use ribbon
- and, of course, use a stamp!
Here is my tool/supply list:
- Cuttlebug embossing folders: Cirles and Dots, Bubbles, Swiss Dot
- Ranger Distress Ink: Mustard Seed
- Core'dinations Mustard paper w/light yellow core
- sanding block
- clear embossing powder/heat gun
- gold Sun charm
- Butterscotch alcohol ink
- white cs, DCWV yellow textured cs, yellow cs
- sun stamp by Club Scrap
- glossy cs
- white ribbon w/orange and yellow starburst flowers
First, I inked up a panel of glossy cs w/Butterscotch alcohol ink. Then, I made a gatefold card out of white cs; I cut stripes of the textured yellow cs, the white cs, the yellow cs, the Core'dinations Mustard cs and the inked glossy cs. I embossed the yellow and white cs w/Swiss Dot ef. The white stripe I inked over w/Mustard Seed distress ink. I embossed the Core'dinations cs w/Circle and Dots ef and sanded it do reveal the core. On the left side of the card I created a mosaic with triangles cut from these five stripes. On the right side of card I centered a panel of the inked glossy cs and layered it over with acetate that I hand printed out on my printer and heat embossed w/clear embossing powder to set the ink. I added triangles above and below this panel. I stamped the sun image on white cs w/Mustard Seed Distress ink; cut it in half diagonally to make two triangles. It is difficult to see but I cut triangles out of acetate and embossed them w/the Bubbles ef; then colored them with Butterscotch alcohol ink; then layered them on the two previous triangles of stamped image then added the sun charm; layered this on the Core'dinations square and sanded edges; layered again on white cs that was inked with the Mustard seed; adhered to left side of gatefold card. On the inside, I embossed the center and right panels. Added the ribbon to the right panel. I hope I remembered everything.
