You are so kind

Hi everyone! I'm happy to share with you another 3 Girl JAM DT inspiration project. I'm still 'into' my fancy folds, as I have been all summer, and created this fun double gate fold card (first one ever) with the absolutely gorgeous Barn Door crinkle ribbon from the Rustic Country Bundle. My inspiration once again came from Splitcoast Stampers - a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator was in the spotlight in a recent SCS Newsletter with this fun fancy fold. :)

I put my own spin on this fold and used some pretty coordinating papers layered on cardstock, along with a couple stamp sets from Stampin' Up! I love these ivory and black double-sided papers, and the pop of the rusty orange is just beautiful! 

I added my signature big bow on the left side, and a pretty gold foil die cut butterfly and double layered sentiment banner on the right side. You can just barely see the clear belly band I created from a thin strip of Stampin' Up! window sheet.

Here's a shot of the card opening up. I stamped 'splatters' on the front and inside panels.

And here's the inside fully exposed with that sweet sentiment on a layered panel. I'm very happy with how this turned out. I can definitely see more of these in my future, lol!

Proud to enter this fancy fold into the following challenges:

  5. I love making different fold cards too and strangely enough have just made a card to be shown on my other blog on Monday with this fold but not done quite the same as yours. I love the papers you have used and the gold butterfly and your bow with the knot element are perefect partners. Have not thought to use a clear belly band before either so that is worth remembering. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge #39.
    Hugs Mrs A.
