Mother's Day Gatefold Card | Cheryl Espie

Mother's Day Gatefold Card | Cheryl Espie

26 Apr 2023 2 Comments

Hi Pinkfresh Studio friends!

Mother's Day will soon be here so I thought you would appreciate some card inspiration for the special 'mom' in your life.

I have been planning this gatefold design for a wee while now as I kept thinking how great the Jeff Alpha Die Set would look spelling 'Mom' down the centre.

To create the gatefold design, I started with a piece of white cardstock 11" x 4 1/4" Then, I scored 2 3/4" in at each end. 

I cut the Floral Lace Die out twice in white cardstock. Then, I cut one of them in half. Perfect dimensions for the front and the back. I glued these Floral Lace die cuts to each outside panel. This formed the base for my card.

I knew I wanted to put something inside the card as it's quite a large empty space so, I die cut some of the beautiful Artistic Magnolia Washi Tape from the Pinkfresh Studio's March release. I glued a Magnolia bouquet inside, adding that cute bow from the brand new Wrap Around Elements released this month!

I also cut out two of the trims in the Elements set for a centre band for the card. 

You will see all the elements are in champagne gold. I chose this because it has gold in the Artistic Magnolia Washi Tape.

Of course, I then die cut MOM from the Jeff Alpha Die Set in the same champagne gold but then matted them on white cardstock.

I half attached the letters to the left side of the front panel, if that makes sense? That way, they would overlap when closed. I finished my card with some added washi to each side panel.

I did not add any bling, because to be honest, there is a lot of texture with this card therefore, I left it 'as is'. 

Well friends, I hope this has given you some inspiration for your Mother's Day cards. You will be able to find a reel over on on Instagram @pinkfreshstudio that demonstrates how my design came together.

Until next time....

Cheryl
