GATEFOLD CARD CHALLENGE FOR THE CUTTLEBUG SPOT

hello all
i hope you guys had a great love day yesterday.
it was quite here, but nice.
------------

the cuttlebug spot challenge this week is making a gatefold card and this is my take on it
 --i still have no name for it-- :(
for now i will call it

Any Occasion Gatefold Card
6 x 7-3/4
pretty big in size- :)
i took a piece of 12 x 7-3/4 inch cardstock
--scored it at 3 and 9 inch--
and that was my gatefold card base.
i used dcwv songbird cardstock.


the gate and the lamp post are from the heritage cricut cartridge, the birds are from an ek mini punch and the grass is from create a critter.

the butterflies are from a martha stewart paper punch.


the clouds are also from create a critter.


on the above pic you see better the dry embossing on the clouds and if you click on the pic it will zoom for a better view.
i used my cuttlebug, of course, and a sizzix texture plate this time.

i had no idea what i wanted to make at all, but as always, all came together at the end,
and i think it turned out really pretty.
what do you think?

 come on, play with us and let us see your take on the gatefold card. remember nilda always have something to give away to a lucky participant. click HERE for more info and for more eye candy from the rest of the design team :P

thanks for stopping by!!
-love you all-

  11. Yes, I think the card turned out great! I have never tried that kind before. I am just not a good card maker. But I have been inspired a lot lately so maybe it will change :)
