Autumn Triangle Gatefold Card

Autumn Triangle Gatefold Card

This card base was made with the “Triangle Gatefold” die set from Creek Bank Creations.  Also included in this set are the stitched triangles to decorate the flaps and the two stitched hexagons.  The framed leaf die is by Mosaic Moments. I created a belly band to go around the card, but the hexagon panel could have been adhered directly to one of the triangle flaps.

The inside sentiment is from the birthday “Stamp & Cut Lot 6249A” set from Firefly/Momenta. I stamped it up on the panel a bit to leave room to sign the card.

Since this card does not stand up on its own, I created a stand with the Card Stand Die from Creek Bank Creations.

To create the handmade patterned papers, I use a gel plate, a brayer, Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks, spritzes of water, the Stampendous! Decor Cling Leaves Rubber Stamp – DCR101, and the French Script background stamp from Stampin’ Up (retired?).  I started with a stack of heavy weight white card stock and had a ball inking, rolling, spritzing, stamping, and layering the inks using the techniques I briefly described in this post. I ended up with a BUNCH of panels, and ultimately chose two from the pile to use for this card.  (Lots of panels left for other cards!)

The card stock used was from the Recollections Nostalgia Pack along with Bazzill Butter Mints.

Thanks for checking out my card project!

  1. Your creation of the bg is exciting and so rewarding. To know how well these turned out and that you have more makes me happy. The idea to create an easel was great. Someone is going to feel very special.


  2. It’s always so much fun playing and creating fun panels. Yours are wonderful. I love this card, too. It’s a great layout and all of the stitched pieces are a lovely touch. This is great.
