Gatefold Holidays card by Lounon

Hello everyone ! Lounon here !

Today, I am sharing with you a gatefold card I made with the beautiful Crafty Meraki Carol Ornament Layering Dies and the Under the Mistletoe hot foil plate.

First, I cut a 9 7/16" x 5 5/8" (24cm x 14.2 cm) rectangle into silver glitter cardstock. I folded it at 2 3/8" (6cm) and 7 1/8" (18cm).

Then, I foiled my Under the Mistletoe hot foil plate with my Gemini Foilpress onto dark blue textured cardstock during 15 seconds at low heat with a silver shimmer foil to match the glitter cardstock. I cut two 2 1/8" x 5 7/16" (5.4cm) x (13.8cm) panels on my foiled cardstock.

After that I used my Carol Ornament Layering Dies and cut the plain bauble into dark blue cardstock and acetate and the front part onto silver glitter cardstock.

I glued the acetate bauble behind the glitter part. I added foam pads around the circle, put sequins on the plain dark blue bauble and glued the front part. I added a bow on my shaker bauble.

Finally, I cut the inside corners of my card and glued small strips of glitter cardstock on them. I also cut a 1" (2.5cm) wild strip onto dark blue cardstock, folded it in three and glued my bauble on it.

Et voilà !

May the craft be with you !
