Please check out the great samples for the Stamp Simply Challenge today on the blogs of these totally creative designers: Janine, Julie, AJ, Tammy, Deb and Barbara, also Barb Schram (Barb is kindly filling in for a bit as Jennifer Buck takes some much needed time off — enjoy your break, Jennifer — we’ll miss you!) and we have Amy Rohl as our special guest stamper for October!
My card stock is 8" long -- I scored my folds at 2" and 6" - did they meet evenly and exactly in the middle..... NO! Did I fret? NO! I just found some pretty ribbon to cover up! This Bo Bunny Paper made a gate fold easy as it is heavy card stock and also double sided. I did do an insert for the middle panel which you can see in the opening. A simply stamped sentiment and a few little buttons and stitch marks to complete it. This is a simple one and a bit heavy on the color aqua! I used thin red line tape to adhere the ribbon, then on the edges of the ribbon I added a dab of clear drying glue so the edges would not unravel from the clean cut. Also I used Ivory embroidery floss and just ran the tip of my Copic over the floss to add a little color but not cover all the strands with ink-- leaving me with the multi-color floss. This challenge call was a great nudge to create a fun card!
