Today’s birthday card features a few different techniques and ideas. First, the card base is using the gate fold technique. I cut a piece of card stock to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and (placing horizontally) scored it at 2-1/8″ and 6-3/8″ to achieve the gate fold.
Second, for some added dimension, I added a few score lines on the “gates” at random intervals on my scoring tool.
And third, you’ll notice the Pear Pizzazz main focal point is a little different shape than we’re used to seeing. It is simply created by running a piece of card stock through the Big Shot using the Top Note Die TWICE. The second time you run it through, turn the first piece that you created 90 degrees – centering it – before running it through a second time. And, voila! A square-ish Top Note piece!
My color scheme came from the ColourQ challenge this week. Stop by and check it out – they always have wonderful color combinations for us!
