Gate Fold Happy Birthday

Happy Monday everyone! Today starts a new challenge over at Double Trouble and we want to see some Spring and some fun folds!

I have never been much for all the awesome and creative folds there are out there with cards. It is usually something that frustrates me. So with this challenge, I usually just pick something that’s a bit different but still pretty traditional. For today’s card I went with the gate fold

I added interest by dry embossing little panels to go on each side of the “gates”

My Spring floral comes from a Papertrey Ink set and the sentiment is from a Gina K set. The pretty coordinating ribbon is a delicate touch to keep the gate folds closed and simply has to be untied for the recipient to look in the card and read a message

Gives a fun and different feel than a normal opening card. I don’t think to ever do it though so I love when this challenge comes up to make me fold a card differently in my designing process

Even though crazy folds are not my favorite thing to do in cardmaking, I sure love seeing what everyone else does with them!

So let’s see what fun folds you have in your cardmaking talents and grab some Spring themed stamps sets to create your card! And if you play with the twist of a fun fold, don’t forget to enter it into our challenge partner’s gallery too! This month it is Creative Creases

Head to Double Trouble to see more details, ideas, and to link up your creation!

Thanks for stopping by today
