A Tic Tac Toe Gatefold – TTTC#021

Time for another Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  Today’s challenge board has a definite feminine feel so I challenged myself to go in a different direction (two challenges in one!).  Here’s today’s board…

I chose the third column diagonal:  oval, free, die cut for my card.

I just recently started making these gatefold cards and now I’m a little bit hooked on them.  They are so easy and I think create a much more interesting card with absolutely no more effort than a regular A2 card since they’re the same size and only scored differently.

Here’s the details

  • The Very Vanilla thick card stock card base is cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 2 1/8″ on each side of the 8 1/2″ side.  This leaves two panels on each side to create the “gate”.
  • I cut two panels measuring 1 7/8″ x 5 1/4″ of Pear Pizzazz card stock and layered that with a pattern from Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper cut 1/8″ smaller on each gate panel.

  • The Belly Band is Very Vanilla card stock with another layer of Pear Pizzazz card stock that I embossed with the Petal Burst embossing folder to mimic the leaves in the Designer Series Paper.
  • The oval medallion was created with the Layering Ovals framelits using both the regular ovals and scalloped oval.
  • The sentiment is from Count My Blessings stamp set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.

  • Here’s a peek of the inside where I added another strip of Designer Series Paper and Cherry Cobbler card stock.
  • The sentiment (non-SU) is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.

  • I coordinated the envelope with the card with more Designer Series Paper on the flap.

With the belly band closure, opening this card is a little like opening a gift!
