Technique:  Slide and Lock Gate Fold – from Lisa Curcio

 

Directions:

 

Place the the 4 ¼” x 11” piece of cardstock into the trimmer with the 11” length along the top, score at  2 ¾” from each end then trim 1/16” from each end (do not trim before scoring as the card will not be the correct width when closed).  Fold along the score lines to establish the folds, the two sides will meet in the middle with a small gap for the sliding mechanism.  Adhere a 2 ½” x 4” piece of DSP to each of the two sides of the card front.  Achere the ¾” x 5 ¼” piece of DSP to the bottom portion of the 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Basic White Cardstock.  Cut one of the larger mushroom dies from the 1 ½” x 1 ½” pieces of Basic White and Real Red Cardstock.  Cut the stem portion of the Basic White mushroom and adhere it to the stem portion of the Real Red mushroom.  Adhere the Real Red mushroom to the 1 ½” x 1 ½” piece of Blushing Bride cardstock and trim around it so the Blushing Bride cardstock is the same size and the Real Red mushroom cap.  This will allow the Blushing Bride to show through holes on the mushroom cap.  Adhere this mushroom right above the ¾” x 5 ¼” piece of DSP which is adhered to the 4” x 5 ¼” Basic White cardstock.  Use Real Red ink to stamp the “Hello” sentiment to the right of the mushroom and directly above the DSP strip.  Adhere this piece to the inside of the card.  Use the Stampin’ Trimmer to score two of the 3” x 3” pieces of Bermuda Bay at 1 ½”.  Fold these two pieces in half and adhere them with the folds in the middle to one of the other 3” x 3” pieces of Bermuda Bay.  Adhere the fourth piece of 3” x 3” Bermuda Bay cardstock on top of the folded pieces making a sandwich with the folded pieces in the middle.  This is the locking mechanism for the card. Use the Snail die cuts to cut a frame from one of the 3” x 3” pieces of Basic White cardstock.  With the frame still in the die, use a Blending Brush and Bermuda Bay ink to apply ink around the edges of the frame.  When you remove the frame, you will have a white edge all the way around with the Bermuda Bay ink blended into the center.  Adhere this frame to the 3” x 3” locking mechanism. Use Memento ink to stamp the mushroom image onto the remaining 3” x 3” piece of Basic White cardstock.  Cut the image out using the coordinating die from the Snail dies.  Color the image as follows:  Light and Dark Real Red Blends for the mushroom cap, Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write marker for the spots and underside of the mushroom; Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Blends for the tallest small mushroom; Light and Dark Bermuda Bay for the smallest mushroom and the “swirl” and Dark Granny Apple Green for the leaves and the blades of grass.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere this image to the frame.  The mechanism will now slide onto the two pieces of the card front and “lock” the card shut.

Basic White – four pieces; one piece cut to 4” x 5 ¼”, one piece cut to 1” x 3 ½”, one piece cut to 2 ½” x 3 ½” and one piece cut to 3” x 3”
Designer Series Paper (DSP):   Berry Delightful (see photo for pattern used) – two pieces; one piece cut to 4” x 5 ¼” and one piece cut to ¾” x 4”
Accessories:  Adhesive of choice, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Blending Brush, Pick-A-Banner Punch, Strawberry Builder Punch, sticky notes, ¼” White Crinkled Seam Binding, Mini Glue Dots

 Directions:

 Adhere the ¾” x 4” piece of DSP to the 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Basic White Cardstock.  Adhere this to the inside of the card.  Adhere the 4” x 5 ¼” piece of DSP to the card front.  Use Memento Black ink to stamp the outline strawberry image onto the bottom portion of the 2 ½” x 3 ½” piece of Basic White (put the top of the strawberry toward the bottom of the cardstock so it will fit correctly into the punch).  Use Poppy Parade ink to stamp the solid inside stamp of the strawberry onto the outline strawberry image.  Punch out using the Strawberry Builder Punch.  Use Shaded Spruce ink to stamp the strawberry stem outline (with the stem facing to the left) on the remaining portion of the 2 ½” x 3 ½” piece of Basic White cardstock.  Use Granny Apple Green ink to stamp the solid portion of the stem onto the outline.  Punch out using the Strawberry Builder Punch. Adhere the stem to the top of the strawberry image and set aside.  Use Memento ink to stamp the flower and leaf image onto a sticky note being sure all three flowers are at the top of the sticky note so they will have adhesive on the back.  Fussy cut out the three flowers to use as a mask.  Use Memento ink to stamp the flower and leaf image onto the piece of 3” x 3” Basic White Cardstock.  Be sure to leave enough room for the strawberry.  Cover the three flowers with the masks which were cut from the sticky note.  Ink a blending brush with Balmy Blue ink and brush the ink onto the 3” x 3” piece of Basic White to create a halo effect around the image, darker in the middle and lighter toward the outside..  It is okay that the ink will cover the leaf portion of the stamp.  Be sure to extend the ink toward the bottom so it will surround the strawberry when it is put in place.  Remove the masks from the flowers.  Color in the leaves using Light and Dark Granny Apple Green.  Adhere the strawberry in place using the photo for placement.  Tie a ribbon using the ¼” Crinkle Seam Binding and use Mini Glue dots to adhere it at the top of the strawberry.  Adhere this piece to the 3 ¼” x 3 ¼” piece of Poppy Parade cardstock.  Use the Pick-A-Banner Punch to punch one end of the 1” x 4” piece of Basic White cardstock.  Use Memento ink to stamp the “Just for You” sentiment onto the banner.  Adhere this to the bottom of the 3 ¼” x 3 ¼” piece of Poppy Parade cardstock.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere this whole piece to the card front.  This makes a great Thinking of You or Birthday card!
