#embossing #paperglaze #silvanachambon #stencil Bee Sting Paper Glaze Luxe I Bee Home Stencil

Hello, crafters and welcome to the PFS blog! It´s Silvana here and on this new post I´m sharing a creative fold card: a diagonal gatefold card that will allow you to make two cards with this closing form out of one sheet. I´m using some of the new products from the amazing February release.

Let´s see how the finished card looks:

The card opens to the left and to the top, with the diagonal cut. To make this, you have to start with a piece of heavy cardstock and make two score lines on the half on both edges of the cardstock, that means at 4 1/4" inches on the 8 1/2" side and at 5 1/2" on the 11". After that you will have to cut the cardstock diagonally meeting the left bottom point with the right top angle. I made a scheme for you just in case:

After this you will have two diagonal gatefold base cards. Just press the score marks very well with your bone folder in order to get the flaps flat. 

Now, the fun part! I started by making an impression with the I bee home 6x8 stencil in the left flap, making sure that the stencil covered all the card first, but leaving the upper flat out of the plates.  After that, put the upper flap down and, making sure that the pattern aligned correctly in the embossed area, I covered it with a paper and started to apply the new Paper Glaze Bee Sting. 


I colored and cut some images from the Wreath Building: Greetings from our hive stamp set and arranged them in the embossed area. 

To finish the card and to make the flaps down, I created a shape in form an hexagon in black heavy cardstock and cut it three times. I heated embossed the sentiment form the same stamp set in one and glue the three forms together making a strong heavy piece to go in the middle of the card, but just glued on the top flap. 

I added some white details to the stamped images and that´s the end! 

I really like how this card turned out with the creative fold. And I hope you like it too! 

Many thanks for stopping by and read my post for today.

Have a great day and happy creations!
