ONE CARD FOR TWO CHALLENGES!

Happy Tuesday! For those of you who know Barb over at Barb's card creations, you know she is hosting a Bingo game. Well, I have thoroughly enjoyed playing and seeing everyone's creations, and decided that I needed to contribute a card as well. BUT, then I cruised on over to Deb's (aka Stampingranny) blog and she is also hosting a challenge - one that requires a gate fold card! So, I decided I would do both in one! I have never made a gate fold card before, but I really do enjoy the look and it is always nice to try something different. Barb required the use of the new in-color paper from SU! so I decided that Blue Bayou would be my choice along with some Wild Wasabi. I also used the new specialty paper wintergreen because I really love the way it matches all the new in-colors so well. I enjoyed making this card and think I would like to make a few more of this style so stay tuned! I did add one element, which is the circle you see on the front - I popped it up on dimensionals so that you can actually close the front of the card. It really was fun to make! So, here it is!








Here is the recipe: (all products SU!)
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Old Olive, Blue Bayou, Wintergreen Specialty Paper
Stamps: True FriendAccessories: Old Olive and Blue Bayou Ink, Five Petal Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, One Inch Circle Punch, Dimensionals, Rhinestone Brads, Paper Piercer and Mat Stack, Liquid Glue, Dazzling Diamonds

Beautiful card...I need to practice making gate folding cards. The diagonal DP here helps frame the center panel: very nice! Thanks for sharing and adding another bingo number.
