Triple Diamond Gatefold Cards

Hi friends, here are my Triple Diamond Gatefold cards that I’ve recently made.

Triple Diamond Gatefold Cards

I made this card during a FB Live craft along using the free gifts from Issue 205 of Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine available here


The free gifts are brilliant, a 5 x 7 embossing folder, and a fun stamp set.

The stamps are easy to colour and fussy cut.

I added some of my own leaf dies to fill out the scene I made on the front and I also added a pink feature for some added interest and texture.

I continued the theme on the front and on the belly band.
