Surprise gate-fold Boho Indigo card

I’ve had the Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo product medley since it first came out, but it was still sitting unopened in my craft area. After attending the “Creativate Winter 2021” online stamp retreat, I pulled out this suite to create a surprise gate-fold card demonstrated by Lisa Curcio. I’ve made gate fold cards before, but this one has a really cute twist to the design.

Of course, I had to add my pop of color to this card. I think the Melon Mambo make the card really special. After I was all finished with the card, I went back and painted the flowers with my Melon Mambo blends so they’d stand out. Of course I smudged it a little and I have a little spot of ink where it shouldn’t be – but that’s what happens when I try to make changes after the card is finished.

The surprise about this gate-fold is the way the card opens! I love it. Creates a bulkier card and probably more postage, but oh so cool! This is the partially open view.

And this is what it looks like fully open.

This is a card for a very special person, just a little early. It’s not as hard as it looks, it just has an extra piece of card stock so the front and inside flaps show on the outside and when opened up.

Here’s what I used to make this card.

Don’t forget Sale-a-Bration is going on and you can earn the free Approaching Perfection cling stamp and/or DSP by just ordering the products to make these card.

Hugs to all of you and happy stamping!
