Be Inspired # 42 - National Friendship Day
This week's challenge at Cuttlebug Challenge blog is to create a gate fold card. Do you ever have trouble getting your folds to come together at the center? Then you need a Score-it ;) I'm just here to enable...LOL). It creates perfect score lines and it is easy to use.
I stamped this frame stamp and colored with markers. I cut the frames apart using my metal ruler and Xacto knife. I glued the largest frame and center square only on the left side, and glued the center frame only on the right side. I created the center embossed rectanlges using Score-it. (Click last picture to see better.) I was inspired by the new Cuttlebug journaling embossing folder.
I often use belly bands to hold my gate fold cards closed. Using a frame stamp used this way is another option; the frames hold the card closed, if you don't embellish too much on the inside of the card.
On the inside left and right panels I used my Victoria Cuttlebug embossing folder. So what do you think?
