Spring and Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with The Rabbit Hole Designs

Hey, everyone! I'm so excited that The Rabbit Hole Designs is a super sponsor for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! To celebrate The Rabbit Hole Designs is offering free shipping on orders of $25 or more (before taxes and shipping - US orders only) for the duration of the hop! (no code necessary, exclusions apply) But there's even more exciting news! All orders placed during the hop of #35 or more (before shipping and taxes) will receive a new 2 x 3 inch stamp set - Handmade Brew! (**while supplies last**) Please note - a limited number of these stamp sets have been set aside for those wishing to purchase them.

Are you ready to see my card? I used the Caffeinated Dino stamp set along with the new Perfectly Blended stamp set to create a simple gatefold card! I have a video at the end of this post showing how easily I created this card!

It is super simple to create the base of a gatefold card - I cut a piece of cardstock in half so that I had a piece 8" long by 5.5" tall. Then I score at 2 1/8" inches from each end. Fold the side flaps in until they meet and boom! Simple base for a gatefold card!

I die cut the Basket Cover Die from kraft cardstock backed with double sided adhesive. I adhered it to one of the side flaps and cut off the excess. This leaves me with enough to perfectly adhere to the other flap! To decorate the front I colored the Caffeinated Dino image and stamped the sentiment from the Perfectly Blended stamp set. I added foam squares to the right side of each of them and adhered them to the right flap of my card. It doesn't matter which side you adhere your images to - but you want to make sure you only adhere them to one side or you won't be able to open your card.

I decided to stamp the Caffeinated Dino on the inside of my card using a light gray ink to add some interest to the inside. Check out my video below to see just how simple it is to create a gatefold card!

Thanks so much for joining me today! Remember to check out The Rabbit Hole Designs blog this week to see more inspiration! Tomorrow Martha will be sharing her project!
