CCREW517TEC: The Best Things in Life are Sweet

Hi All!

For our May Creative Crew Technique Challenge, I chose the Double Gate Fold card.  This was a new technique for me and there's a great tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers if you'd like to give it a try.

I love this technique!  It looks so fancy-shmancy, but it's actually pretty easy to do.  You just need to be sure that you have a double sided DSP that you like as you'll be using both sides of the print.

The DSP I used is from the Cool Treats Suite in the Occasions Mini.  There's also a really cute stamp set called Cool Treats that will be carrying over into the 2017-2018 catalog.  It features all kinds of sweet treats.  I used an older stamp set here, but Cool Treats would be a great set for birthdays and summer themed cards. So be sure to check it out.

Item# 145181 Cool Treats $48.50

The sentiment is from the Suite Sentiments set in the Occasions Mini.  This set is awesome!  These sentiments pair up with so many different stamp sets which make it so versatile.  This set is retiring this month, so snatch it up as quick as you can!
