Around The World On Wednesday May Blog Hop Fancy Folds

Welcome to the Around the World On Wednesday May Blog Hop as we showcase Fancy Fold card designs. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as we share our ideas and projects to help inspire you. 
Today I am showcasing a Gate Fold card with a difference. I found this version on You Tube, shared by fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Connie Stewart. The measurements for this Gate Fold gives it an asymmetrical look. I used the Art Gallery Bundle (item #156227) with the coordinating Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper (item #154558) from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog to create this bold design. I love this beautiful combination of Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo, Old Olive and Basic White with just a touch of Gold embossing to step up the design.

The bold colors in the designer series paper really bring this card to life and I used these colors to choose the coordinating cardstock to create the design. The Poppy Parade card base makes the designer series paper panels pop and I used Old Olive to stamp the stem of the flower onto the Basic White focal panel to coordinate with the background pattern. To create the flower, I stamped the base image with Flirty Flamingo Classic ink and the second layer with Poppy Parade Classic ink to add depth and contrast. I die cut the flower and added it to the focal panel with Stampin' Dimensionals. Using Clear Wink of Stella, I added some shimmer to the flower image. I embossed the sentiment with Gold embossing powder and added the Flirty Flamingo label to the bottom of the focal panel with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. For a touch of bling, I added Basic Rhinestones to the sentiment label and I added a small white bow to the stem of the flower with a Mini Glue Dot. To add the focal panel to the card front, I centered the panel and added glue to the left side of the back of the panel and attached it to the left flap of the card front. This way the card can still open and close. For the inside panel, I added the small strip of designer series paper along the bottom of the Basic White cardstock layer to dress it up. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to try creating your own fancy fold card and explore the wonderful possibilities out there.
