Gatefold Slider Card | Stamping Bella

Hi all! Today I'm back with a Stamping Bella tutorial on how to make a Bundle Girl Bunny Gatefold Slider Card. There was a lot of trial and error to figuring out the correct measurements for this card, but I got there in the end and I love how it displays on my dresser. 

The papers I used are Echo Park, My Favorite Easter. 

Easter themed paper 
Scoring board and bone folder
Dies: Clouds, Grass Border, Pennant

How to:
Stamp Bundle Girl Bunny onto white card. Colour using your preferred medium, then fussy cut around the outline. 

Cut a piece of card measuring 9" x 5.5". On the 9" side, score at 2.25" and 6.75"

Fold in the outside sections to make the gatefold. 

For the layers, cut: 
Card - 
(2x) 5-3/8" x 2-1/8" 
(1x) 5-3/8" x 4-3/8" 

Paper -
(2x) 5.25" x 2"
(2x) 5-3/8" x 2-1/8" (inside, no card layer)
(1x) 5.25" x 4.25" 

Adhere down all the card and paper layers. 

Cut two pieces of card measuring 1.5" x 5". Score on the 5" side at 0.75", 1.5" and 4.25"

Mountain fold all the score lines. 

Apply adhesive to the end with one scored section and adhere to the inside card front as shown. 

Apply adhesive to the 0.75" section on the other end, tuck under and, ensuring the card is open flat, adhere to the centre panel. 

Repeat on the top left of the card with the other slider mechanism. 

Cut two pieces of card measuring 3.5" x 2-5/8",  and two more, in a contrasting colour, measuring 3-3/8" x 2.5". Adhere the smaller pieces to the larger pieces. 

Apply adhesive to the 2.75" section of the slider and adhere the card layers. 

Decorate the sliders with paper and die cuts, then adhere the images. Stamp the sentiment from Easter Sentiments stamp set and cut out using a pennant die. 

The card should fold up to fit an envelope.

A2 Folding Shadow Box Card | Stamping Bella

Hi all! Today I'm sharing how I made this Folding Shadow Box Card featuring the NEW Guinea on a Bicycle and Cherry Blossom Branch rubber stamps. The Guinea is mounted on an action wobbler so this is a fun interaction card that folds up into a 4.25" x 5.5" card and fits neatly into an A2 envelope. 

White Card
Distress Oxide Inks - Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass
Scoring board and bone folder. 
Precision scissors
Action Wobbler
Grass Border and Clouds dies. 

How to:
Stamp Guinea on a Bicycle and the Cherry Blossom Branch on to white card. Ink up just the envelope from the Guinea on a Bicycle and stamp  it numerous times on a scrap piece of white card. 

Colour all the images and fussy cut using a precision scissors and a craft knife. 
Set the images aside. 

For the box base, cut a piece of card measuring 8.5" x 9.75". Score on all four sides at 2-1/8". Taper the edges of the 0.5" tabs. 

For the side pieces, cut 2x pieces of card measuring 2-5/8" x 5.5". Score both pieces at 0.5" on the short side. 

Fold and  burnish all the score lines on the large piece of card. 

Along the 8.5" side, mark the half way point - 4.25", on both the top and bottom. 

Using a ruler and stylus, score diagonally from the 4.25" mark down to the intersection of the score lines

On the 9.75" side, cut on the score lines, up to the intersecting line. Taper the edges of the four corner tabs. 

Fold back the diagonal score lines

Apply adhesive to the outside of the corner tabs and adhere to the adjacent box side. 

Take the 2-5/8" x 5.5" and fold the 0.5 section under. Ink the 2-1/8" section to create a grass/sky effect. 

Cut two pieces of card measuring 2" x 5-3/8" and one piece measuring 4-1/8" x 5-3/". Ink them the same as the box sides. 

Adhere the 2-5/8" x 5.5" pieces to the outside of each side of the box. 

Push in the sides to fold up the box. 

Ink some more white card and cut some grass using grass border die. Cut some clouds 

Arrange the grass and clouds on the box

Then add the Cherry Blossom Branch

Attach an action wobbler to the back of the Guinea on a Bicycle and adhere into the box. 

Add the sentiment and the extra envelopes to complete the box.
