I quite like Gatefold cards. I kinda gives you two fronts to play with, which is great if you can’t decide which stamp set, punch or die to use, which was the case here.
I really like the Thoughtful Banners with its so many different words to use but then i recently purchased the Falling Flowers with its co-ordinating dies and wanted to use them too. So I thought why not use them both together…and this is what I came up with.
As you can see, I used Melon Mambo and a sheet of Pop of Pink DSP which gave me the only other option of Basic Black.
Using the Thoughtful Banners I alternated Basic Black and Melon Mambo banners across the front, leaving the last one to sit on the bottom right front panel.
I took the Falling Flowers and stamped the leaves in Basic Black, I know, who’d have thought it. I then stamped some of the flowers in Melon Mambo. I actually did one set stamped and another set stamped off once.
I decided to place the lighter of the Black leaves above the other and with the flowers, the largest paler one I stuck onto the card front and the other I cut the centre petals out and layered on top.
I added Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the centre’s and also each corner of the card. I then added a Metallic Enamel Shape under the bottom banner.
It’s always difficult make up a card using just two colours but I think this turned out ok.
See what designs you can come up with using just two colours.
