Father’s Day is just around the corner and I wanted to get a head start on my cards. Why so early you ask? The Stampin’ Up new catalog goodies are on their way to me and I am going to want to share and play with them. Someone on the Demonstrator website shared this Double Fold Gate card and I knew I had the pattern and wanted to use it. Creating it with the Sailing Home bundle was perfect for a Father’s Day card. However, I think it would be great with any of our Designer Series Paper.
When you start the card, you may want to do your scene image (center panel) first so that the photo can dry. Simply use some water colored pencils and watercolor paper.
The video on my blog shows you a few helpful tips when designing the card. The supplies are listed below.
