Everything ABCs Blog Hop

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter "G". This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their "G" element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Amber's blog ~ Scrapper's Therapy (link:

If you came from Shelly's blog at Just One Piece, then you're on the right track!

For my "G" element - I chose "gate fold card"! 

As you can see from my cards above, I also chose a couple more "G" elements:  Glitter Gems and Glitter paper.  I used our For Always paper pack for both cards.

I cut the first gate fold card at 4 1/4" x 11".  I scored it at approximately 2 3/4" from each side. The second gate fold card was cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and was scored at approximately 2 1/8" from each side. I say "approximately" because I needed to make a tiny adjustment to get the cards to fold evenly.

For the heart shape in card 1, I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. You can find the image on page 26, A6, Shift, < Heart1 > cut at 4". 

For the dress shape on card 2, I used the Artiste Cricut cartridge.  You can find that image on page 41, B1, Shift, Accent 2, < Q > cut at 6 1/2".  The hanger can be found on the same page - Shift, Accent 4, < Q > cut at 1".  I cut the hanger using our Silver glitter paper.
