A Gate Fold Card

 Hi Crafters,

This card was made for no particular reason. It just started out as an experiment. First I cut the front of the gate fold with a scalloped oval nestabillities. Next I cut two panels for the front and cut those with the next size up scalloped oval. I then embossed the panels the top half with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and the bottom half I scored straight lines with my fiskars paper trimmer. ( I use it as a scorer as well as a cutter) I stuck the panels to the front of the card. I added pearls to finish off .


Here is a close up of the front.
Click on photos to get a closer look.


Then I started to decorate the inside.

I used a paper from My Minds Eye "Bella Bella" paper stack
A scalloped oval Nestabillities and a straight edge oval.

The silhouettes were cut out on my Pazzles cutter.

This is a view of the inside of the card.
I haven't put the greeting on yet but have put a plaque there for when I do.

Like I said the card started out as an experiment but I am rather chuffed with the result.

Thank you for looking, let me know what you think by leaving me a comment. :)
