NEW CARD STYLE! Tiered Floating Gatefold Card

Hi friends, today I have a fun new card style to share which I’m calling a Tiered Floating Gatefold card.

I wanted a special card style to show off another wonderful stamp from Daisy Mae Designs!

The panels on this card remind me of a tiered cake/wedding cake/church doors & mountains, making this a great card for many occasions.

I’ve kept my panels plain, but bold to match the colours I’ve used in the images, but I can see this style covered in beautiful pattern papers which I think I will try when I make the 6 x 6 version.

This one folds down to a 5 x 7 size.

As always there is plenty of space on the back to stamp and write your message.
