Winter Wonderland Portion Control ~ Power Poppy



Happy Friday!!  Shoot...Happy November!!  This is my favorite month because this is when we get our Fall colors in Central California, and when the weather finally starts to get cooler!!  The 60's are projected for this whole next week, with a few showers thrown in the mix.  That is HUGE!!  We need rain so badly!

So, since it's a new month, that means it's time for a new Power Poppy Power and Spark challenge and the super talented Cindy has come up with a fun one.  We are to practice portion control.  That means, use only portions of an image on your project.  We'd love to have you join us too.  You could win a $50 shopping spree if you do!!  Now, how can you pass up that opportunity!!

I decided it would be fun to make a Double Gatefold card with a belly band.  I haven't done that in many years!!!  If you'd like a tutorial, a good one can be found HERE on Splitcoaststampers.  I used the new Winter Wonderland image that I diecut using Gold Labels Four (Spellbinders).  I cut it in half, and added it to the front of my double fold along with a belly band to hold it closed.

The sentiment on the inside is from the new Flowering Santa set.  I love mixing and matching sets.  It gives you so many more options.


Here's a close up of the closed card and it's belly band.  The sentiment is from the new Glitter House Village set.  If you haven't seen the new Happiest Holiday 2017 collection yet, be sure to visit the Power Poppy store and check it out.  These sets are all quite incredible!!

Wow, TOSH! This is gorgeous, and I agree that a "thud" is in order too! Your mono-tonal is exquisite with the touches of blue, and the gate fold is beautiful with the decorative die! It's stunning and will be cherished for a LONG time! Yes, you surely do need some rain, and I know you are enjoying the cooler weather! Hugs, sweet friend! xoxo
