Gate Fold Card

Gate Fold Card
           Hi friends  one of the best things about having a paper-crafting hobby blog are the numerous fun challenges you can participate in. One gets to see so many inspiring creations, stretch one's one creative potential and if lucky ,win a prize too !!
Gate Fold Card
         This New Year Greeting Gate fold card is held closed at both ends by a band of ribbon on which I added a Marianne Border die cut, a little yarn bow, a few pearls and floral sequins .
Here is  the tutorial link on how to ink die cuts to maximize their potential : Fun with Dies
Gate Fold Card
            The Butterflies on the ribbon band and the flap of the card were stamped with a Hero Arts stamp, heat embossed with white embossing powder and colored with distress inks. They shimmer so beautifully in real...not able to quite capture it in the photographs!

          On sliding away the ribbon bands the interlocking flaps of the card can be opened. I placed the stamped "Thinking Of You" [ another Hero Arts stamp- Sizzix die set] on one flap and the "Happy 2016" on the other flap and overlapped them slightly to form a sort of lock!

         On the inside of the card I added  a Hero Arts - Sizzix stamp -die  flower , a heat embossed butterfly and a sentiment sticker on layered Spellbinders Labels 8 die cuts.

  1. My 1st comment has disappeared into cyber space! Your card is beautiful. Not only have you turned the gate fold on its side but you have added 2 band enclosures. What a brilliant design and it is in pink too. I found your post on my dash board and thought I must have this for my Butterfly challenge. Then right at the end what a relief to see you have already joined. Thankyou for fluttering by . Hugs Mrs A.
