Father's Day Gatefold - Stampin' Up! Gone Fishing

   I was out of town all last week on a family girls trip so I didn't get any new projects stamped but luckily I have a few that I made before I left.  Today's is a Father's Day card but you could easily change out the sentiment and it can be a card for any occasion.  

  I wanted to do a nature themed card for one of my fathers-in-law since he's a big plant and tree guy.  The Thoughtful Journey DSP seemed like a perfect match and I looked around for a fun fold that I could use to really show off a large chunk of one sheet and came across this really easy gatefold that has a large main panel and a skinnier side panel.

  This one takes just 2 scores on the 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card base.  Score at 1 1/2" and 5 3/4".  That's it!  I cut the panels to match leaving a small border around the edges.  My card base here is Mossy Meadow.

  I used a larger and smaller circle from the new Spotlight on Nature dies.  The larger circle is adhered to the skinny side panel only and then I used some of the Textured Floral dies to add some sprigs.  I used Mossy Meadow, Wild Wheat and Lost Lagoon cardstock as those are colors that are in the Thoughtful Journey DSP.  After adhering the sprigs I topped them with the sentiment circle which is adhered with dimensionals for a nice raised look.

  The only father's day sentiment I had is in the Gone Fishing stamp set so I used that with Mossy meadow ink.

  I dug deep in my retired embellishment stash and came out with a few candy dots from long ago which I added to the edge of the larger circle.

  This is the card opened up.  I added more of the DSP panels to the inside as well as a little stamped flower from the Wildflower Designs stamp set.

  All of the current supplies used to make this card can be purchased in my ONLINE STORE.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
