SSINKspiration Fun Folds Challenge SSINKFF4: Gate Fold

Good morning!  We had a peak of beautiful spring weather this weekend but now take a step back with this rainy cool day, so I decided to use our springtime fun this weekend as inspiration for today's card.  Today the SSINKspiration team has a fun fold challenge, and this month we're using the gate fold.  This is a great technique because you really just adjust where you score your cardbase for a fun twist.

I started with Peekaboo Peach cardstock for the cardbase and used Tutti-Fruitti Designer Series Paper (retiring) for the two front panels, I love this citrus pattern and color pallet.  I used a piece of Lemon Lime Twist 3/8" Mini Striped Ribbon (retiring) to wrap around the card and tie a bow and this will help hold the card closed.

The greeting is from the Layering Love stamp set (retiring) and I love this saying so I just used my Stampin' Write Markers (Pumpkin Pie, Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach, and Daffodil Delight) on Whisper White cardstock and then matted it with Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I used dimensionals just on the left side of the greeting to attach it to the card so the card will open.  Of course I needed a little extra pop so I added some of the Tutti-Fruitti Adhesive-Backed Sequins (retiring).

This card is so fun and will certainly brighten someone's day, no matter what the weather is when they receive it.  Make sure to check out the other design teams card using this fun fold and then play along and share what you create, we would love to see it!
