Heart2Heart Challenge #1

A number of Close To My Heart consultants have joined in a new challenge called the Heart 2 Heart challenge. Each challenge is based on a color combination. This weeks combination is Sweet Leaf, Sunflower and Chocolate.

I've created a double gate fold card

Here's the recipe:

  • 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Chocolate Cardstock

  • 1 3/4" x 2 1/2" Chocolate Cardstock

  • 1 1/2" x 2 1/4" Sunflower Cardstock

  • 5 1/4" x 12" Sweet Leaf Cardstock

Score and fold the 5 1/4" x 12" Sweet Leaf cardstock at 2, 4, 8, & 10 inches. Fold as shown in the photo. Stamp stem with Sweet Leaf ink on folded Sweet Leaf cardstock. Stamp flower with Sunflower ink on scrap of sunflower cardstock and cut out. Stamp center with Chocolate ink. Stamp sentiment on Sunflower cardstock with Chocolate ink. Stamp remainder of sentiment inside the card with Chocolate. Mat sentiment to Chocolate cardstock. Adhere flower on right side of card being sure to only put adhesive on the right side of flower. Adhere matted sentiment on card front as shown, being sure to only put adhesive on part of the back. Attach back of card to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Chocolate Cardstock piece.

Nice card! Does it open in the center? Cool!

This is neat! I get it, so both sides pull open, while the front pieces stay facing forward. Awesome-ness!!!
