Fun Fold Card - GDP022

I have a fun fold card to share with you today! I have to say that this "gate fold" is one of my fave fancy card folds, simply because it is not fussy. All you need is a scoring tool or a paper cutter with a scoring blade. We created this at my demonstrator team meeting last week and they loved how simple it was.

I created this card today for the Global Design Project Challenge GDP022. This layout is a great sketch and worked perfectly for my gate fold card design!

I promised a simple card fold ... here it is:
The WATERMELON WONDER RIBBON is anchored on the right card flap and wraps all the way around the card to fasten behind the white card front. To conceal the start of the ribbon I added a layer of SMOKY SLATE CARDSTOCK (2" x 5-1/4") to each flap front. I used FAST FUSE to adhesive the ribbon at the back of the white card front.

Quick Tip - Make sure that you do not add STAMPIN' DIMENSIONALS to the backside of the white card front where it will over hang the gate flap.

Before I go I have to draw your attention to the stamp set. I used the BALLOON CELEBRATION stamp set to create this dandelion!!!!! Amazing, right?! Did you know that there was a dandelion in this set??
