Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Velum, Versamark, Gold Embossing Powder, Distressed Markers Fired Brick and Peeled Paint and die cutting machine.


This card started off as a basic 6″ x 6″ card and I got a little carried away.  Start by cutting 2 – 6″ x 6″ pieces of cardstock and another 6″ x 6″ piece of Velum.  For the cross you will need to create several layers.  The first layer out of white is 6″ x 11″ with a 2″ thick cross 1″ down from the top.  You will need to scor on the top edge 1″ so that the cross can fold over and attach to the back of one of the 6″ square pieces.  You will them attach the second 6″ square piece to hide the flap.  I wanted to have several layers of folds at the base so they are simple mountain and valley scores every inch.  The designer paper for the 2 layers of the cross are each 1/2″ smaller then the previous layer and this is finished off with the Cross and Lilies die cut.  I wanted to give the impression of a peaceful resting monument so I added the gates and finished the card off with the Poppy Corner and Border Cling Stamp Set.  The Poppy Border Cling Stamp image was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold embossing powder and then colored with Distressed Markers and the flowers were distressed with Memento Rose Bud.  The sentiment was also cut from the Blazing Poppy Paper collection with fussy cut fish tails on each end.

Thanks so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful day!

  3. I love this card. Can you explain how you added the gates?


    • Hi There,

      I am so glad that you like my card. The gates are actually attached to the Velum. I only glued the edge of the gate and them folded it so they looked open. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask and have a great day!
