Diagonal Gate Fold With Love Is Kindness

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Today's card is not only the fourth created this week with the gorgeous tulips from the Love Is Kindness stamp set from Stampin' Up!, it's another fancy fold too. If you've missed any of the other LIK cards, click on the days and they will open in another tab: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.

The card looks great on the outside...

And on the inside too...

Card; Crumb Cake (two 5" x 10" and a 4'' square), Whisper White (3 6/8" square plus extra snippets), Coastal Cabana, Very Vanilla (snippet), and Best Year Ever DSP (two 4 3/4" squares)
Ink: Memento Black
Markers: Wild Wasabi and Bermuda Bay Blendies
Stamp Set: Love Is Kindness
Tools: Bracket Label punch, Basic Pearls and Stampin' Dimensionals

Score both 5" x 10" pieces of Crumb Cake card at 5", then cut diagonally from the score line out to the corner. Turn one if necessary and adhere the squares together to create the gate fold base.
Cut one of the 4 3/4" Best Year Ever DSP squares in half diagonally and adhere to the front of the card. Attach the other square inside the card.
Stamp the image from the Love Is Kindness stamp set in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White, the flowers onto the snippet of Whisper White and the newspaper wrap onto the snippet of Very Vanilla.
Color the complete image with Wild Wasabi and Bermuda Bay blendies, and the extra flowers and 6 pearls with the Bermuda Bay blendies.
Attach the stamped panel to the 4" Crumb Cake square and attach the panel carefully to one side of the gate fold.
Cut the newspaper wrap and adhere to the complete image. Cut the extra flowers and decoupage onto the image with half a Stampin' Dimensional.
Stamp the sentiment in Memento Black onto Whisper White, punch with the Bracket Label punch and layer onto two punched from Coastal Cabana card. Pop up using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Add the colored Basic Pearls to complete the card
