Belly Band Gate Fold Sketch Card with Beautiful Peacock

We are right in the middle of Sale-A-Bration and this Beautiful Peacock is strutting his stuff on this Belly Band Gate Fold Card! This card was inspired from a Sketch Challenge I offered to my VIP’s in our Facebook group to encourage them to use up their materials and get inspired to create! I absolutely love how this turned out, and I can’t wait to show you how I made it!

Belly Bands are so easy to make, and they are perfect for keeping Gate Fold cards closed. The simple embellishments on the center oval really add a special touch to this beautiful card. And yes, I had to use MORE rhinestones!

The challenge winner for my Magic Mirror Sketch Challenge was Pam! Here’s her beautiful creation along with the sketch image.

All my customers and downlines gain access to my VIP Stamp Lounge to see sneak peeks and gain entry to challenges and prize drawings!

I’m calling this sketch the Magic Mirror sketch because of how the center oval reflects the card’s personality. I really like how the Soft Sky and Basic Gray complement one another so well in this design.

I also decided to add some stamping to the outer panels to add a little more interest behind the belly band accent. I am so excited with how much this steps up the card! And I’m a sucker for flourishes, so win win!

MK Live 2/1 – Gate Fold Technique

Welcome back to Melissa’s Kre8tions Live, my lovely kre8tors!

mk-live-2-1-title-page

This is our 15th episode! We are going back to an old favorite, Jar of Love, to create a Gate Fold card! I had a request to show this type of fun fold, and wanted to get colorful for Spring! 😀

Still being in the hotel, I am somewhat limited on space and materials, so I’m making the most with what I have!

I apologize in advance for my poor connection quality. If you are watching live, the replay when the video is posted will hopefully be better quality. And if not, I will film a proper tutorial! 🙂
