Gate Fold with a twist for TSOT # 362
This was a fun card to make, I was on Pinterest one day and saw one like this so I decided to put my spin on this fold. I'm hoping it will pass for the Gate Fold challenge (with a twist). There are so many talented people stamping and sharing on places like Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram. We at TSOT are trying to expand, we have a Pinterest page and are trying to add to Instagram, have you been to either of those two places. Of course it isn't necessary for you to add there just on out TSOT challenge page. Do you stamp? or just look at what everyone else is doing and think I'd like to do that! Do you share what you stamp, I know that is something I should do more of. It seems to take time out of the very busy days I have. Is that your excuse? I guess that I should try to get on for a certain amount of time each day or realistically every other day and add my visions. I'll try to do better!!! How about you trying by adding a card to this challenge?! We'd love to see what you come up with for this type of card :0)
If you can't tell from the picture I made this card to open diagonally. The circles are added on both sides and hang over the opposite side, overlapping to help hold it closed. It's quit easy to do, just cut your card stock from corner to corner then score the long side at 5 1/2 and the short side at 4 1/4 give the folds a good crease making sure that they line up nicely. While your making one you might as well make two since one piece of card stock makes two card bases. The diagonal layers were cut to 4x 5 1/4 then cut diagonally - be sure to cut the pattern paper the right direction for which place your adding it - (ask me how I know) especially if your wanting a certain side.
Stamp Set - Bella and Friends, sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet, inside- Birthday Wit from Occasions Catalog
