SPRING BEAUTIES

At my March Stamp-In Workshop, my girls made a gatefold card for Easter using the lovely You're Inspiring stamp set, found on page 31 of the Occasions Catalog:




The girls got to experience first-hand the Stampin' Blends in the coloring of the daffodils. We used the combos of Daffodil Delight (!), Calypso Coral and Old Olive. I also gave them the option of simply coloring the flowers in using Stampin' Write Markers.






The Designer Series Paper that covered both of the gatefold sides came from the Delightful Daisy DSP on page 189 of the big catalog.


If you would like to recreate this card for yourself, keep reading for the Supplies List and the Directions.

SUPPLIES:
Whisper White cardstock
Daffodil Delight cardstock
Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper

You're Inspiring stamp set (page 31 of the Occasions Catalog)

Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Stampin' Blends or Stampin' Write Markers

DIRECTIONS:
Score a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock at 2 1/8". Turn it around completely and score once again at 2 1/8". Fold on the score lines to create a gatefold card.

On each of the sides, adhere a 1 7/8" x 5 1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper.

Stamp the large daffodils onto a 2 1/4" x 3 1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Your choice for coloring the flowers: Stampin' Blends or Stampin' Write Markers.

Once the daffodils are colored, adhere the piece to a 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock.

Stamp "Happy Easter" onto a 1/2" x 2" piece of Whisper White cardstock. Adhere this to a 3/4" x 
2 1/4" piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock.

To adhere the two pieces to the gatefold card: Add adhesive to only the left side of the daffodil piece (actually, when it's turned over to receive the adhesive, it will be on the right). Adhere it to the left side of the card.

For the sentiment, add adhesive only to the right side (left side when it's turned upside down for gluing) and adhere this piece to the right flap of the card.
