Meaningful Gatefold Cards [August Paper Pumpkin Series #7 & 8]


I created these cards using a gatefold. It’s not a secret garden door (though that would be fun too!), but a fun, twisty fold that can add an extra touch of surprise to your flower cards. ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿต๏ธ๐ŸŒน

But wait, there’s more! ๐Ÿ•บ

I got a little crafty and dared to repurpose our oh-so-pretty printed envelopes. ๐Ÿ˜Ž An artsy crime? Maybe. But the end result? A stunning card front that’s a joy to behold and hold! ๐Ÿ’Œ๐Ÿ’ฃ

Two shades battled it out – a tranquil blueberry ๐Ÿ’™ and a lively lemon. ๐Ÿ‹ Who emerged victorious in this chromatic clash? Well, that decision is yours to make!

So, folks, which one’s your pick? Are you a Blueberry, or Lemon Lolly lover? Cast your votes below! ๐Ÿ‘‡

(Little secret: there’s no wrong answer! ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Remember, all it takes is a curious mind, a twisty fold, and an audacious color to create something beautiful! So, don’t wait! Sparkle up your day with Meaningful Flowers cards and let your creativity bloom. ๐ŸŒผ



Coordinates with July – September kits. Available now while they last.
