Stamp the sentiment* and cut out with the sign die.

*To position the sentiment as I have, first cover the ‘mail’ with a piece of double sided tape. Ink the stamp and then remove the tape. The ink will only be on the ‘happy’. Stamp the Happy and then clean it off with a baby wipe. Cover the ‘happy’ with double sided tape and repeat the process, positioning the ‘mail’ where ever you want it to be. Stamping Bella DT Thursday - Create a Double Gate Fold Card with Sandiebella!

    What a beautiful card! It looks kind of complicated for me to do and I don’t have a scoring board or bone folder, although I have sharp fingernails so I use those to crease a card. I liked seeing how you did it and I will save it so I can check it out better. Maybe someday I can do this card!

  10. A fabu-loso card and a brilliant tutorial!! Thank you Sandie!
