Pretty in Purple

TGIF!
Today I am sharing a fun gatefold card with you.  The black gatefold card base is a pre-scored card from American Crafts, they come in a pack of 12 which makes it easy to quickly reproduce your cards.


I stamped the Magnolia image from Stampendous in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then colored it in with my Tombow Irojiten Colored Pencils and added some Stardust Stickles


I added some Tombow Mono Dots Roller to one side of the die cut panel and adhered it to the left side of the gate fold.


Then I added some of the small Tombow Foam Tabs to the back of the image panel and popped it up onto the larger die cut panel.


For my final touch to this card, I tied a bow with some white satin ribbon and use a Tombow Power Tab to hold it in place.  I know I always say how much I love these power tabs, but they are so versatile and can be used virtually anywhere.  

As always, I hope you have a fantastic weekend.  The weather here in Central CA is supposed to be perfect this weekend and I am looking forward to it.
