Butterfly Gate Fold Card..

Good afternoon friends and visitors, wish today would make it`s mind up! sun shine and showers.

I started with card size 6"x 12" to make this gate-fold card..finished size 6" x 4.1/4" closed.

Used Concord & 9th die Butterfly Cards.. Butterfly Beauty Stamp set.
For this butterfly, I used the edger die & fancy die..
 I fussy cut a plain stamped image, using a mix of  Versa Magic  inks on the stamp and same mix I cut a fancy butterfly. these I adhered in the center of the butterfly. 
Sentiment is from the same stamp set.

I have made a frame for the inside with Amy Designs "Christmas Card Set"  Memory Box Swirling Stitches for interest  and this lovely open Butterfly " Floral & Flutter Dies " Concord & 9th.

There is quite a few ways to use these Stamp and Die get some good ideas if you google them.

Rather that leave  square corners, I used my We-R-Memorykeepers corner rounders..

Item I have used available from

Beautifully designed, Pam! Love the butterfly feature in the front with the special "locking" mechanism. The interior is delightfully surprising with another beautiful scene awaiting! Your choice of colors offers lots of drama with the black leaves and sentiment on the front, and more graceful, yet dramatic, elements on the inside. Very imaginative! Hugs, de

Oh, my... the pretty butterfly on the front is just a hint at the loveliness you find inside! Had to go look at the butterfly card die set. How intriguing! What a nice sentiment, too. Lots of versatility with the Christmas die you used inside, and it's a perfect fit. You have the most amazing die collection. What a treat it would be to see in its entirety. A fabulous treasure trove!

I love a gatefold card, this is beautiful....I see the post on Card Making Tips was taken down, I have had a look at 'frantic stamper' they do have the rose die, but shipping doubles the price, thought I could get it in the UK....Thanks anyway Pam, will keep looking....luv Ursula xx
