Petal Passion Small Square Double Gatefold Card

Another of these Small Square Double Gatefold cards... simple to make... simple to decorate... but a WOW in the flesh...

I used the Petal Passion papers and the co-ordinating Petal Palette stamps & dies bundle on this version... with a bit of help from Rose Wonder and Perennial Birthday for the sentiments... as they both happened to be out and on clear blocks... and the 2 sentiments worked well together...
And this version used the largest Stitched Shapes square... though personally I prefer the next size down... as used on the Springtime Foils version shared a few weeks ago... 

Love that you can leave these papers black & white for the neutrals-loving-folk but can simply colour in for those that like their colour! Using Stampin Blends or your Many Marvellous Markers... Though I used my Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay Stampin Blends on this card...
Though I did first Sponge Brayer the centre piece of paper with Soft Sky... a lot faster that way! Just be aware that you can't then get away with Pink Pirouette or the palest colours for your flowers!! Yes that is why my light Bermuda Bay flowers on the central paper have a "strange" tint to them ...

Want to make one of your own... then just click here for the Tutorial(s)... for A4, US Letter and 12x12 cardstock... though my next one in March classes will definitely be using the 12x12 version... as so much simpler!
And I should have taken a photo... as Jill brayered Lemon Lime Twist in class instead of the Soft Sky... and it looked fabulous! Lovely and fresh... and just right for Spring...
