Yesterday I had a little play and made a gatefold card in a style I used to do about eight years ago. It is certainly different from my usual cutesy type and I think I might stray away from them now and then as I seem to have got into a bit of a rut. I certainly don't seem to play with my stamps to the full anymore, just stamp and colour an image and shove it on a card.
Anyway, back to the card in hand. This is quite a simple card to make as I just layered the front and inside with card and paper. I then added some die-cut corners to the front and stamped some butterflies directly onto the panels. The stamped image has been coloured with promarkers and a touch of stardust. I then chalked around the image before layering and attaching using nesties and foam pads. I then stamped and heat embossed more butterflies directly onto the side panels. The wrap is simply cut out using a template, and joined with a bit of sticky backed velcro. I have added punched daisies with gem centres to the middle. These wrap gatefold cards were very popular way back then but seem to have lost their popularity over the years. Hope you like it, thanks for looking.
