My latest birthday card that I had to rush to finish. It's another gate-fold and window shaped card.
I should have put a different colour background rather than white--the white outside frame doesn't show up to well here. Oh well, no chance to take better pictures now as the card is already in the mail...LOL.
I used a Go Kreate die for the outside shape and a Spellbinder die to cut out the window shape. I used the Martha Stewart Daisy Dot edge punch to border the circle in the card inside (see my tutorial on how-to here).
This oh so adorable image is one of Sylvia Zet's from Whimsy Stamps. I've coloured it with my markers.
When the card is fully open and laid out flat, it looks like this. I've only created a small blank space to write my personal message on--had to write small...LOL.
***Edited--I've made a tutorial for this style of cards HERE.
