October 1, 2016 HOUSE OF CARDS Gatefold Card







This month over at THE HOUSE OF CARDS our challenge was to do a gatefold card. or use the colors below.  I did a slight variation of the gatefold - I believe it is called the pleated gatefold.  I have a habit of buying paper packs/digi papers because I LOVE papers and when you use from the same pack they match pretty well.  These papers are from Simple Stories.  For the "belly band" to go around the card I first ran some solid cardstock through embossing folders and then die cut leaves.  The additional twine really tied it all together.  

 Come join our challenge over at The House of Cards this month.  Will be looking for your great creations to this challenge.
