Carnations on Double Pop Out Gatefold

Hello my crafty friends!

Today I have a card that Sam Calcott calls a Double Pop Out Gatefold Card.  Sam does some really awesome cards on YoutTube.  The link for this style card can be found here  I have changed it a little because I have used Spellbinders Susan's Garden flowers on front of card. I have chosen Susan's Carnation S4-1325 from her latest release Through the Arbor, Lemon Verbena S4-1278 from Victorian Garden Foliage from The Victorian Garden release and Berry Branch from Foliage and Ladybug S4-1079 from the Autumn Flora release .  The 3D embossing folder that I used on the front is called Weeping Willow by Creative Expressions EF3D-071.

I followed Sam Calcott's video to create card until I got to the front then I added an oval frame centered on card front.  Frame was attached using Bearly Art Glue and then a craft knife was used to cut in middle being careful not to cut the card base itself.  I Used Spellbinders Fluted Classics Ovals die set S5-474 for the oval frame and the pop out oval.  I have left off the sentiment for now will add when it is given out.

Using Spellbinders Susan's Garden Carnation S4-1325 from the new Through the Arbor release and Susan's Specialty Paper SCS 122 I cut 3 Carnations.  I left 1 white and colored 2 with alcohol markers.  They were then shaped using Spellbinders Susan's Garden Deluxe Tool Kit #021.  You can find Susan's tutorial video here

Next I cut 4 Lemon Verbena S4-1278 from Victorian Foliage set from the Victorian Garden release.  Susan's tutorial video can be found here

The Berry Branch from Foliage & Ladybug die set S4-1079 from Autumn Flora release was cut twice from watercolor paper colored with alcohol markers then shaped.  Berries are little Styrofoam balls colored with alcohol ink refill.  Selma Stevenson has a tutorial on her blog for making the berries.                                    

Selma's  Stamping Corner berry tutorial October 5, 2023 can be found here

With card closed flat and using Kids Choice Glue I added the Lemon Verbena first then the Carnations lasting filling in with leaves and Berry Branches.

The Pop Out Oval will have a sentiment on it.  For the photo I just temporarily attached it to card but sentiment needs to be added to oval before attaching.

Thanks for stopping by today and I sure hope that you have been inspired to go make a card.

Until next time - Happy Creating!
