Happy Saturday!!
I have a second card for the CALLING ALL ARTISTS - SPECIAL CHALLENGE at Ellen Hutson's PIN-SIGHTS CHALLENGE.
 After seeing this gate fold card tutorial from Jennifer Mcguire, I simply had to see if it was just that easy:))..and it was!

  • I started out by making my card 4.25x11" scored on 3.25 and 2.5 on the other end.
  • Used a scalloped edge border die for the gate fold cut.
  • Stamped the KINDNESS from HoneyBee and sparkles from My Monthly Hero kit on the top panel
  • Cut a few leaves from Essentials By Ellen WILD GARDEN and adhered them to the lower panel which I inked in Altenew's SEA GLASS

Opening up the lower panel reveals a tiny mushroom/toadstool scene I stamped from the My Monthly Hero kit and colored with my Ziggys:)..and a few more leaves from Wild Garden.

Open the top fold to see the "BLESSED me" sentiment. an afterthought I think I should add HAS above the Blessed.
What do you think?

This was an exciting project to create as I went along:))
Thanks for stopping by!

It really is lovely! I think it would look good with Has (blessed me) but it also looks good as is too. Great job, Laura Jane! <3

Beautiful work. The Has might be a good addition, but really it looks lovely as is. Your detail work is gorgeous. Wow!

What a gorgeous card - I'm so glad I ordered the Hero Arts kit now, although quite sure I can't do anything quite as beautiful as this with it. And I don't think you really need to add "has" at all; it works just as it is! Really lovely card, LauraJane!

Beautiful LauraJane!! what a creative design : ) I like it just how it is. The word "has" is implied and looks perfect just how it is. I know Ellen is watching YOU friend! : )
