Here is a birthday card I made this week. It is patterned after a card featured on Dawn Griffith’s blog, Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts (www.dawnsstampingthoughts.net). She calls it a “Double Gatefold Double Peek-A-Boo Card” and there is a great video with clear directions and simple measurements. I’ve put my own spin on it, but basically it’s a 3-fold card that provides an opportunity for you to get those creative juices flowing. You use 8 1/2″ x 11″ cardstock and it folds into an A2 size for easy mailing.
There are so many options for this format. I’m thinking of what a cute Halloween or Christmas card this would make. My plan is to use this one to hold a gift card for an upcoming birthday for our granddaughter. Here is a list of supplies:
Paper: Soft Sky–Stampin’ Up (card base), plaid–Recollections, Petite Prints–Dooddlebug (yellow)
Punches: 1 1/2″ square & 2″ scallop–Recollections, 2″ circle & Label Love, & Cupcake Builder–Stampin’ Up
Stamps: Celebrate Today & Label Love–Stampin’ Up, Cake Day–Alley Way Stamps
I hope you will give this card a try. It’s a lot of fun!
