Directions

STEP 1

  • Make pink card base. For card shown at top center, create “gatefold” by scoring and folding a 5”x12” strip of cardstock at 3” and 9” from one short end.

STEP 2

  • For non-gatefold cards, stamp black images onto white cardstock. Use Smooch inks to color images as shown and cut out. Stamp and color sentiments such as “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Holidays!”; cut out.

STEP 3

  • Cut three 5”x6” black cardstock pieces; die cut Baroque shape from center of each one and save all pieces. Trim three negative shapes to fit card fronts; cut one in half for gatefold. Adhere shapes to cards.

STEP 4

  • For gatefold card, stamp sentiment and images across closed card.

STEP 5

  • Detail some cards and die-cuts with gel pen. Adhere images with Zapdots, trimming dots as needed. Stamp black sentiments or adhere sentiment strips.
