Good Morning! Happy Wednesday! I’m back with another Paper Pretties Wednesday challenge. This week the challenge is to make a non-traditional or unique fold card. I decided to go with one of the easier non-traditional fold cards — the gate fold, which works great with a nice, big focal image.
The Best Friends set is perfect for this card. I stamped the girls in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored them in with Copics, knowing I’d be using paper from My Mind’s Eye Fine & Dandy Tickled Pink. After cutting it out with a rectangle Nestie and before removing the Nestie, I traced the inside edge of the Nestie with a fine point black pen. I really love how this makes the image pop a bit more. It is matted on a scalloped rectangle of Berry Sorbet. Too create the “latch” for the gate fold, I stamped the OMG! sentiment and popped it up on some dimensionals to tuck the edge under. I added a tiny bow to the top corner and some rhinestones for a touch of bling.
