I LOVE that we have an EXCLUSIVE stamp set available at a DISCOUNT each & every month!!

Today I was inspired by a recent Interlocking, Gate-fold card I saw as I was browsing for artwork ideas.
The card looks like it will open the "normal" way at first...but take a look at the photos, further down this post. ;) 

The above photo shows you the card closed...but let's slowly open the card, and check out the details...

and now...let's open it all the way! :) 

Let's check out the DETAILS of this card. :)

When I first saw this stamp mind thought "background stamping" and that's exactly what I did!  

The grid paper is one I KNOW I'll be using often ;) ....but it also worked PERFECTLY for a background as I stamped the flourishes onto that grid paper!! (note---I stamped in 2nd generation ink) 

What about the front centerpiece of this card??

Our Stitched RectangleThin Cut, made the perfect "hinge" for the front of the card. I glued the left side of the Espresso CS frame to the left side of the card.....and I glued only the right side the white, solid, "Love" rectangle, to the right front of the card. 

The stitched hearts were cut from Peach cardstock & Gold Foil paper, using our Stitched Heart Thin Cuts.  

The peach heart was too "plain" so I decided I wanted to use the 3 flowers, in the middle of the LARGE cluster of stamped images. :)  

I did some "masking" of my stamps....check out the photo to learn more. :) 

We'll take one more look at the inside of my card.

  I couldn't just leave it "plain", so I used the lighter side of our Almond Cardstock & stamped the ENTIRE, larger image of the flower design on the inside.  

...I wish you could see the SHIMMER of the flowers!!  We have a BRAND NEW Peach Shimmer Brush, and that's what I used to color in the flowers. The Julep Shimmer Brush was used to color in the leaves. 
I also chose to distress the edges of the cardstock by swiping the cardstock across my Espresso ink pad

The papers used for this card comes from our BRAND NEW " Yesterday & Today" papers. These neutral tones can be used by themselves, or paired up with almost any color!


To finish up the card I used, Gold Glitter Gems and our wonderful Gold Embellishing Thread! I love to finish off a card with these extra "sparkles"!
