Color Fusers February Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Color Fusers February Blog Hop! We have some fabulous projects to show you using the following colors: Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso and Peekaboo Peach.  When I first spied these colors, I automatically thought of ice cream & popsicles! The Cool Treats stamp set was perfect for my card:

So today's card fold is called a "Double Gate Card Fold". Isn't it the neatest? The photo below shows you all of the panels once the card base is scored and folded:

And this is what the card looks like when folded flat so it can be mailed. The size is a tad bit smaller then the normal card because I wanted to use an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of cardstock instead of 12" x 12". When closed, the card measures 5-1/2" x 3-5/8":

And what about the beautiful layers of the Succulent Garden Designer Paper that I used on some of the panels? Pretty huh? If you keep reading and scrolling down, I will give you all the measurements I used today!

Start with a piece of cardstock that measures 5-1/2" x 10-7/8". I used Early Espresso Cardstock. Score at 1-13/16", 3-5/8", 7-1/4" and 9-1/16". Fold on the score lines so that your card base looks like the photo below and then complete the stamping and layers (listed below the photo):

Side Layers:
  • Bermuda Bay Cardstock 1-5/8" x 5-3/8" (cut 2)
  • Succulent Garden Designer Paper 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" (cut 2)
