Gate Fold Card with Window + NON28 + Man Up

Man, it's been a while! I keep wanting to post more often, but I'm telling you that things just keep popping up and I don't have much time to craft at all.  

Happy June! This month we are having a Man Up challenge at Naughty or Nice Challenges! It's the month that celebrates Father's Day, so you'll be making masculine cards any way, so why not join us in the fun?! Naughty or nice, just make sure to follow the rules :) You can interpret the theme any way you want, so I decided to make a masculine card for my dad who just completely redid my laundry room and it looks AH-MAZING!!!! He is such a handy guy and did a fantastic job! My husband and I both absolutely love it and I WANT to do laundry in it :) Thanks, Dad! I love you :)

I loved the idea of a gate fold card with a window, but I didn't like the reality of it. I'm telling you that this card and I DID NOT get along. We didn't play well at all and I really don't think I will ever, ever make another card like this again! It took hours. Seriously.  Ugh. I'm glad it turned out really cute because the process of making it just plain sucked!

We love dogs and have two; my parents have one. I thought a dog card with the sentiment would be perfect. Too bad one of my dogs had a stomach bug and had diarrhea everywhere in my craft room not long after I completed the card. I WAS NOT happy about dogs at that point, but thankfully I got over it quickly so I didn't have to re-do it LOL

I honestly couldn't even tell you how I made this card because it was that traumatic LOL It was a miserable process so I'm sorry I can't be of more help with that. I can however tell you what supplies were used:


Neenah Solar White card stock\
Kraft card stock
Patterned paper from stash
Mama Elephant Playful Pups Stamp Set
There She Goes Stamps Size Matters Stamp Set
Copic Markers
Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
\Acrylic block
ATG tape and tape runner
Paper trimmer
Martha Stewart Crafts Scoring Board
Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Oval--Small

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope to see some of you join in this challenge!


  1. Your card is fabulous and looks really complicated! At least the poorly pup let you finish your card before redecorating your craftroom floor! Jo x

  2. Definitely looks worth all the pain and suffering! You'll have to post an update on how long the love of doing laundry lasts. :D

  3. Sara, that dog card is adorable! I love it and him! I just want to squeeze that puppy! Too cute!

  4. Oh dear, bet you were glad to get out of your craft room after that!! Great card though, I'm sure your Dad loved it :)


No need to be shy! I love getting comments and appreciate every one :)
