Meerkats Gate Fold Card Tutorial

Hello lovelies, I hope you are all feeling well? I have been having a bit of fun with some of my new stamp sets that will be released this January 3rd, 2020.

When I received my box of goodies (from the pre order from Onstage in Sydney), I also received some freebies because I qualified for the Sale-A-Bration (a free item with every $90).

Once this new 2020 Mini Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration Catalogues go live in January, you will be able to take advantage of this offer too!

Today I will be showing you how to make a Universal Gate Fold Card using the new Meerkats. This is called universal because the measurements can be altered to suit the card size and envelope you use in your country.

The stamp set is called The Gang's all Meer! The DSP is also a freebie, it's from the Lily Impressions and I thought this piece was perfect for a desert setting.

The other new stamp set I used on this card was Sending You Thoughts..I think it's a great one because of all the varied choices you have.

This is the front of the card, quite simple...but cute. The hat is stamped with Cajun Craze which matches the DSP perfectly.

I stamped, coloured and cut out all the images ready to attached to my assembled card.

Here is a top view, the landscape was created using the Waterfront Stamp Set and the grasses were from High Tide.

All the images were stamped in Basic Grey.

Isn't that gecko the cutest little thing? We don't have Meerkats native to Australia, but we do have the gorgeous Geckos. Some even like to visit my conservatory or live under rocks and logs in my garden.

I tied a piece of Linen Thread around the greeting.

Here are the Blends I used to Colour in the images. ( I think I used Smokey Slate in the video)

Well enough show and tell, here is the video tutorial I created in case you wanted to make your own in the future.

Here is the Tutorial how to create this card.

I am holding a class over the Australia Day Long weekend this January 25, Saturday. I still have a few spot left if you are interested. And yes, we will celebrate the day in Aussie style with Lamingtons!!
