Creatables and JustRite Musical Christmas JRC_078

I made this card for the JustRite Friday Challenge #078 - Christmas In July.

I decided to make a 5x7 gatefold card using ivory CS and this Oriental Trading Co poinsettia paper. The poinsettia paper had borders at the top and bottom, so I cut them to fit the outside of the doors, and used the green between the borders inside. I also cut the green with the background die from this Marianne Creatables set, and outlined it with an 18K gold Krylon pen. Then I cut the fancy part of the die with Core'dinations gold pearl paper, and mounted it onto the green paper.

The Spellbinders 2010 Heirloom Ornaments was cut with more of the green and also outlined with the gold pen. I added pieces of Dresden Trim to the ornament as well. The ivory oval was stamped using the JustRite Original Peace On Earth Borders & Centers - Interlocking, which is one of my favorite stamps. I stamped it with VersaMark, and used Superfune Detail Gold EP, then outlined the inside border of the stamp with a red Copic. The ivory oval and card were distressed using Antique linen.

The oval is mounted dimensionally onto the ornament, which is mounted dimensionally onto the doily. Then the whole thing was mounted dimensionally onto half of the card, leaving the other side unmounted so the door can be opened. The inside has a larger ornament using the same gold pearl paper, with a distressed smaller oval inside it as a space for writing, and gold holly dresden trim in the corners of the card. The berries on the Dresden trim were colored with a red Copic.

I added strips of another Oriental Trading Co paper to the inside of the door, and added more Dresden trim and red Stickles to the ornament inside. After finishing the inside, I added gold and pearl Liquid Pearls to the front of the card.

Such a beautiful gate fold card, Kathi. I love the JustRite Christmas baubles, but as yet I don't have that set. Your Marianne die looks amazing, too x
