Today I’m sharing a card I designed as one of the Make & Takes for our August Candy Hearts team meeting. I used the Poinsettia Place Suite Collection to create this double gate-fold card. At 3″ wide, it’s skinnier than the usual 4-1/4″, but that leaves room for the sprigs to hang off the edge. It will still fit into the standard medium envelope. The poinsettia was die cut from the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper, and glued onto a piece of card stock that was cut with the same die. That’s to make it sturdier, since half of it hangs off the layer.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Old Olive card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 9″, then scored at 1-1/2″ 3″, 6″, and 7-1/2″”
  • Soft Suede CS layers cut to 1-3/8″ x 5-3/8″ (2 pieces)
  • Old Olive card stock layers cut to 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ (2 pieces)
  • Very Vanilla CS cut to 2-3/4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Poinsettia Petals stamp set:

  • sentiment in Soft Suede ink onto the Very Vanilla CS

Cut using the Poinsettia Dies:

  • flower from a piece of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper (DSP)
  • scrap of Old Olive CS using the same poinsettia die
  • 3 sprigs from a scrap of Soft Suede CS

Embossed using the Greenery Embossing Folder:

  • both Old Olive CS layers

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the folds in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Soft Suede CS layers glued onto the two outer most sections of the card base
  • Old Olive CS layers glued onto the Soft Suede CS layers
  • Soft Suede CS sprigs glued onto the Old Olive CS layer on the left
  • DSP poinsettia glued onto the Old Olive CS die cut in the same shape
