1 ¼” section created by the score line to the inside of the card.  This creates a “book” spine”.  Adhere the ¾” x 2 ¾” piece of DSP to the 2 ¾” x 5 ¼” piece of Basic White cardstock and adhere to the inside of the card.  Adhere the 2 ¾” x 5 ¼” piece of DSP to the right side of the card front.  Use the Snail dies to cut an envelope from the 3” x 4” piece of DSP and also to cut the snail matching the one on the You’ve Got Mail stamp.  Fold the envelope and apply Multi-Purpose adhesive just to the edges of the bottom flap.  Leave the top flap open.  Use Memento Ink to stamp the sentiment onto the

Accessories:  Adhesive of choice, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail dies, Stampin’ Trimmer, Blending Brush
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.
