This month the challenge is
Gatefold Cards and/or Colors
Here's my card
OK - I've never made a gatefold card before this challenge. I knew what it was, just never attempted one. I started with a cardbase cut to 3.5" x 11". Using my scoring board, I scored at 4" and 8.5" from one edge. The finished card would be smaller than an A2 card at 3.5" x 4.5". When folding the two edges up, the edges overlap. This is what we want.
Using MFT Die-namics Layered Heart border die, I cut through the top two layers using the solid heart border die. I also die cut the solid heart border from a piece of bright pink, which I adhered to the bottom of the top portion of the gatefold. I die cut the outline heart border from a piece of light pink, which I adhered to the top of the bottom portion of the gatefold. I was amazed that everything actually lined up.
With a piece of pink printed paper, I also used the solid heart border die to place on the top and bottom gatefolds. For the sentiment, I die cut a heart from Memory Box Cherub Hearts and stamped the sentiment from Simon Says STAMP Thanks stamp set. I found a small heart die cut, which I covered with crystal effects for a bit of shine.
Hope you can join us at House of Cards this month by creating a gatefold card or using the inspiration colors.
