We've been hearing off on and forever that George Clooney was finally going to get hitched. Well, apparently this weekend it is finally going to happen! The entertainment industry has been all a-buzz about the upcoming nuptials for weeks, and he's actually confirming information, too. So… if I were a guest to the wedding, this would be a great card to give the new bride and groom.
Actually, this was one of the cards that we made in our August stamp club gatherings. One of the gals had mentioned at the July meeting that she needed a wedding card soon, so I decided to design something to meet her request.
It is a little hard to tell from the picture, but when the card lays flat the blackberry and coral ovals interlock. Our wonderful Framelits make these cards incredibly easy to create. Here are the details:
- Create a gate-fold card base. This one is 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 2 3/4" and 8 1/4".
- Decorate the panels of the card base as you want – here I used some beautiful Park Lane DSP.
- Select two adjoining sizes of Framelits – the smaller needs to be large enough for whatever you want in the center.
- Die cut the center shape with the smaller framelit. In this case because I wanted stamping in there I stamped before die-cutting.
- Die cut the outer shape by placing the two framelits over the cardsock, lining them up so that the smaller one is centered inside the larger one.
- Adhere the center piece on the left side of the gate fold, be careful to only apply glue on one side of the shape so you aren't sealing your card shut.
- Adhere the outer piece on the right side of the gate fold. Make sure that it is lined up to surround the inner shape before you stick it down. Again, only apply glue on the right side of the die cut.
There you have it! You can experiment with some different shapes to create your own fun cards.
