A Gatefold Card

Challenges

Stamptacular (61) - Life's A Beach
Cupcake Craft (93) - Summer Delights
Papertake - Fun, Fun, Fun (Summer)
Simon Says - Father's Day/Male
Totally Papercrafts (19) - More Than One Fold

This is a card I was commissioned to do with the brief of 'horse riding and sky blue'. I decided to make a gatefold card and use lots of hearts. I found the picture on the internet and layered it using my heart Nesties. The sentiment has been stamped and embossed and also layered in the same way. The panels are simply punched with a MS border punch. When I attached the image and sentiment I did it so that the image is attached to the left side and the sentiment to the right side. This way they interlock to make it a bit more interesting. I finished off by adding some little horseshoes and gems. Hope you like it.
