Save the Date Gate Fold




Alli Miles has done it again! Wedding Day is a gorgeous collection of stamps with multiple purposes. Here I created a "Save the Date" card using nothing but these beautiful stamps. If you notice, I did a combination of techniques here, a gate fold and an aperture (SO EASY with Nestabilities!). The circle in the center is adhered with foam tape, so conveniently, the folds of the card get ever-so-slightly caught underneath it! (OK, I will not operate under a false pretense - I discovered that totally by accident. Yep, chalk that one up to serendipity!)

I will have another card from this set later this week!

Hey, in the meantime, I know that several of you are beginning card makers, while many others aren't. If there is ever something that I mention that you're not sure on (e.g., the gate fold dimensions, etc.), PLEASE let me know! I am always happy to provide the information and always fear that I may bore you with concepts I think are basic, but may not be. Does that make sense? I hope so!

I hope you have had a great weekend! Be well.
