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.
