If you came from Amy Tsuruta’s blog you are already on track! If not, you may want to hop on back to Scor-Pal to join in on ALL the fun! Don't forget to leave comments! Skipping Stones Design will be giving away one stamp set to a lucky winner and Scor-Pal is giving away a Scor-Buddy, so there is lots to win!
Here’s the sketch Angi has provided us for this week!
I have to say I love my original Scor-Pal, but I am loving my Scor-Buddy! It saves so much room on my desk and is perfect for cards! I used my Scor-Buddy to make this Gatefold card. The Scor-Buddy has two dots at 2 3/8 and 6 1/8 so if you’re using cardstock which is 8 1/2 long you simply score on those two dots and you have the perfect Gatefold card!
I decided with the sketch to focus on the largest sentiment in this set, the Happy Mother’s Day. I stamped it repeatedly on a piece of pink cardstock and then separated them into strips for the card front. The trick with a Gatefold card is to have some type of closure. In this case I used ribbon and when it’s slipped off the inside is revealed.
Here’s a peek at the inside! A simple little flower on the inside, perfect for you to add your own heartfelt sentiments!
