My featured die templates are:

S5-050 Nursery Time Frameabilities®

LF-251 Grand Big Scalloped Ovals

The first thing that came to mind was a baby announcement in a gate fold card.  The LF-251 Grand Big Scalloped Ovals were a perfect fit for the S5-050 Nursery Time Frameabilities.  It was pretty simple to construct, I layered the Grand Big Scalloped Ovals with Grand Ovals, using My Mind’s Eye Lush papers and cardstock.

The scallops allowed me to measure and fold the card perfectly!

I made a sleeve from the patterned paper, printed on the cut out from the large frame, and adhered the smaller frame to it.

Slide off the sleeve and the card opens.  I inked through the die template to color the embossed ducks and stitching detail.  I cut/embossed the frame in blue cardstock and pieced together a large frame to mat the cream colored frame.  I used the bear die cuts from the blue frame to sit in the bear shaped opening.

I love the peek-a-boo of the bear die cuts. Double sided patterned paper makes this card a delight to open, and the big scallops convey the sweetness of a new baby.  (No, there are no new babies in my house – just a very spoiled fur baby!!)  This card is going to be one of my favorites!

Supplies: Spellbinders Grand Calibur™; LF-251 Grand Big Scalloped Ovals; LF-110 Grand Ovals; S5-050 Nursery Time Frameabilities; SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™, MyStik™ Mounting Squares; Clearsnap Color Box Glacier Ice Ink; My Mind’s Eye Lush™ Blue Patterned Papers; WorldWin Papers Treasures Natural Cardstock; Bazzill Basics Paper Frosted Teal.
