MMM A Gate fold you say....


This weeks House Mouse and Friends blog challenge is to make a gate fold card. I haven't done one of these folds forever infact I had to remember how to cut this right. I messed up a few times, good thing for extra cardstock. LOL
I used a soft colored paper from memory box called Sweetbay. I colored the flowers in a soft barely banana ink and assembled the gate fold. I do like how this turned out. I can't get it to closed for the picture without my hands holding it, so I just took it with it open. :0)
Check out the other DT's cards and play along with us! Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
