Horsin' Around


Happy Wednesday!

It's time for another Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge!  Today, the designers were challenged to make a card using a fancy fold technique.  We could make any kind of card we wanted to - just not a traditional A2 or Square card.  I choose to make a gate fold card because I not only love the interactive nature of them, but they are also super easy to make with your Scor Pal!  Just score the 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card stock sheet at the two dots ( 2 1/8" and 6 3/8") on the grid of the Scor Pal and you've got the correct measurements.

I have to warn you, as much as I love gate fold cards... I dislike taking photos of them because it's really hard to get the full 'flavor' of the card without taking lots of photos.


Here's the card opened a bit.  I like to use double sided patterned papers for these type of cards so the front and back are decorated for the center focal point.

Fabulous Gate Fold. Just wanted to confirm the dots are at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8". The tri-fold someone mentioned are the inverted triangle grooves.
Jessica could you e-mail me at ladydian@shaw.ca. I have something for you.
