There are two additional die sets in the annual catalog I’ve included with my floating gate fold cards. The Friendly Silhouettes dies feature several landscape images, perfect for scrapbooking and cardmaking. I used the cattails landscape die, cut the tips off and created a grassy background for these cards.

The Happy Dies has a cloud formation die to bring your project to life! I used the die with vellum cardstock to make a stencil. The Blending Brush allowed me to add subtle color for the perfect summer sky!

Floating Gate Fold Card – Idea #2

Let’s not forget the other half of this promotion – the Hey Chick Bundle (stamp set + coordinating dies). While the overall layout is similar to my first card, you’ll notice the images and dies are different. These two Bundles work so perfectly together that purchasing both was an easy decision for me!
