This was the more time consuming card that the Essex stamp club group made at their recent meeting. None of the steps on this card are too complicated, but there are a bunch of layers and the card opens in a different way which makes it a bit more involved. It’s also what makes the card something special to give to your special someone this Valentine’s Day!

Here you can see better how the card opens, and you can see that the belly band slides off to open the card. This card opening is called a “gate-fold” and I wanted to share this slightly different fold technique with this group. I also wanted to show them the absolutely gorgeous DSP that is currently available as a Sale-A-Bration option. I fell in love with this paper when I first saw it at the OnStage event in November. The colors are so vibrant, and the artwork is just beautiful – it looks like you have an oil painting on your card! This amazing paper is available until the end of March (or while supplies last) for a free option with a $50 order. So, if you like this paper and want some for your crafting, place an order to get some while you can. Contact me if you any questions – I’m glad to help!
