New Baby Gatefold Card

YOU WILL NEED:
Craft essentials
Patterned paper, Pebbles Night Night 12” x 12”
Embellishments: Pebbles Night Night ephemera, puffy stickers, foil repeat stickers
Die, oval
Punches: corner rounder, scalloped border, floral border

METHOD:
1 Trim white card to 15cm x 24cm and score down the longest side at 6cm and 18cm. Fold the sides inwards to create a gatefold card, then round off the corners with a punch.


2 Cut floral paper to 11.5cm x 14.5cm, round off the corners and adhere to the inside. Trim two panels of pink paper, 5cm x 14cm, and matt onto kraft card. Round off the corners and adhere to the two front panels.


3 Layer two strips of floral paper, 3cm x 6cm, onto gingham paper, ensuring to leave a small border along the top and bottom. Punch four floral borders from kraft card, fix behind each strip and glue to the front panels.


4 Die cut two ovals from contrasting patterned papers and layer up with 3D foam pads. Attach to the left front panel and secure a sentiment topper on top. Glue a pink twine bow below the oval and adhere a sticker to the centre. Stick a butterfly topper to a strip of acetate and fix behind the oval. Finish with a fox puffy sticker in the bottom-left corner.
