Congratufuckinglations! You're Awesome!by Celia Morse
Hello Hello fellow Roadies!
I started off by creating the gatefold card by cutting down a piece of 8.5x 11 sheet of card stock to 8.5 x 5.5 and scored it at 2⅛ and 6⅜. After that I cut a piece of patterned paper to 4 x 5.25 to be my front panel then cut it down the middle.
I glued down my front pieces and then sewed around them to add some interest. Then I stamped the "You're Amazing" sentiment from the Holy Shit set.
Next, I embossed "Congratufuckinglations" on the middle of a vellum paper with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide and clear irradescent embossing powder. I cut the across the whole paper and scored it directly on top of the card to make sure it was a secure fit (approx. 2⅛ and 6⅜).
To close and cover the gap in the back on the band, I diecut a star from the same patterned paper on the card front and glued it to the inside of the vellum band. On the backside I glued two layered stars diecut from kraft and black glittered cardstock.
Next, I stamped out Robin, colored her up with alcohol markers and fussy cut her out. Then I cut the corkscrew from the "Screw It" sentiment and stamped it next to the "Time to make some Pour Decisions" sentiment on a 4 x 5.25 piece of kraft cardstock.
I adhered the kraft panel to the inside of the card next, and inked the inside of the band with brown and black inks after finding the sentiment a little hard to read.
Lastly, I glued down Robin to the front of my card and popped down a few clusters of rhinestones. I can't wait to send this one out to a certain friend of mine that is now recognizing her full potential and awesomeness!
I hope this inspired you to make your own gatefold card, or any card to encourage a dope ass friend! If you're loving these stamps as much as I am, or want to pick up any other sets, use my code Celia10 to get 10% off your next order!
