Gate Fold Card for Fancy Folds Blog Hop #FF02

Fancy Folds Banner
It’s time for another Global Fancy Folds Blog Hop, and this month we are showcasing the Gate Fold card.  The Gate Fold card is super quick and easy to make and is different from the standard card as it opens from the middle.

I wanted to make the flower the focal point of this card so I did this by only cutting the card height (14.8cm) and not the width.  I then scored the card at 5cm & 15cm, and put a small mark at 20cm on the top of the remaining panel (rather than cutting the card at 20cm).  I then inked the flower and leaf image using StazOn ink and stamped on the front of the card so that the top of the leaf lined up with the small mark.  After colouring the image and around the image using an aqua painter and ink from the lid of my ink pads (same technique as Monica used last month) I added a little Wink of Stella to make the image pop.  I cut out the Rose Wonder flower and leaf outline (from Shimmery White card), adhered it on top of the stamped image and then cut along the right side of the outline to create the edge the card.

I love how the Gate Fold card opens from the middle, it is just a little different, here is what the card looks like partially open.
