This is a gate fold card base, cut at 11" x 4 1/4" and scored at 2 3/4" and 8 1/4". Using the Brayer (102395), ink the Lace Brocade Folder (127819) with Basic Black. Place a 4" x 5 1/4" mat from Basic Grey into the folder and run it through the Big Shot (113439). Repeat this process with another piece of Basic Grey scrap, making sure to have two Lace designs available to cut out. This will give the card stock a look of velvet on the embossed areas. Cut the mat in half and place up to the edges of the card centers. With the Top Note die (113463), cut a black and a white piece, trimming the white along the "stitching" created from the die cut to make it a bit smaller. Cut both of these in half and layer on top of the embossed mat. Cut the two Lace designs from the scrap piece and place on each end of the top note pieces. Cut a black from the Labels Collection Framelits (125598) and a piece from the embossed scrap with the Apothecary Accents Framelits (127003). With Basic Black, stamp the image from the Apothecary Art (125525) and layer these three pieces. Place tape on one half of this and attach to the right side of the card opening. Add small Pearl Basic Jewels (119247) to the flower centers of the stamped image. Place a black ribbon bow to the left corner of the image and add two of the medium pearls from the jewel collection.
This is a card that you could use for so many different occasions, sympathy, wedding, anniversary, etc. It really looks nice. Add a duplicate set of Top Note cuts for the inside of the card and stamp your sentiment.
I hope you give this one a try. I am sure you won't be disappointed. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
