This is my very first attempt at making a gate card. Thank you Doreen for showing me your Halloween gate card and for inspiring me to make my very first one. :)
This is the front of my card. I used the stamps set True Friend from Stampin'UP! Every thing but the pearls on this card are all from Stampin"UP! except for the little pearls. The white pearls are from K& Company. I used Soft Sky and Blue Bayou card-stock. I really love these two colors together. For the background of my card I used Versamark and stamped an image randomly on the Soft sky card-stock. Then I stamped the flower image on the smaller layer of the Soft Sky using the Blue Bayou ink. I put my image through my Xyron and then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds all over it so that it would be all glittered. I layered the smaller Blue Bayou card-stock to the soft Sky card-stock but before I adhered them together I used my corner punch and punched each corner. I added a small white pearl to to all 4 of the corners. Then I added my center glittered image and added a larger pearl in the center of that. On the right hand side of my gate card I adhered part of the square using small pop dots.
I have a feeling that this will be the first of many gate cards for me. :)
I had a very nice day today did you? I hope so. I managed to get all of my food shopping done for the week. I enjoyed being outdoors. We had an over cast day and even a little rain but it was still wonderful to be outdoors.
Today Anne and I are going on another road trip together. We are going to a stamp store called Wing Doodle. Anne was there for a brief time and told me that I have got to see the store. So off we are going. It is in Warner, NH which is only a 30 minute drive from where I live. I seem to live in a very location regarding stores. :) The rest of the weekend I will be spending with Wayne. I hope that all of you have a fantastic Labor Day weekend. Smile. :)
