Hello friends! It's Channin here and today I’m creating a gateway fold card with the May 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit. In today’s video I will demonstrate how to use partial die-cutting to create a custom card base as well as how I Copic color many images from the kit’s stamp set!
You can watch the video below or HERE on the Hero Arts YouTube channel.
To create this card I first stamped several images from the kit’s stamp set in Intens-ified Black Ink onto Dove White cardstock. I then Copic colored all my images and then die cut them out with the matching dies.
Next, I Copic colored the white border around the images so they would blend into the Adriatic cardstock I had chosen to create the card base from.
I then created my gate fold card base starting with two A2 side-folding (5 1/2” x 8 1/2”; scored at 4 1/4”) Adriatic card bases. Next, I partially die cut the front of one of the card bases with the large coral reef die from the kit. I trimmed off the excess cardstock around the partial cut with a craft knife and ruler. Next, I repeated this process for the second card base and then adhered the two uncut halves of the card bases together to form one card.
Next, I adhered the coral images over their partially die cut counterparts on the card base and trimmed off any overhang.
I then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the set onto Pitch Black cardstock and fussy cut it out. I adhered it and a fish to the front card flaps. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment inside the card in Intens-ified Black Ink and adhered a fish next to it.
I hope you enjoyed my card and video! Thank you so much for stopping by!
