I have long wanted to try one of these special fold cards and here is my very first one. My aunt and Godmother is turning 90 and I decided that a twisted gate fold card would be just right for her. The sentiment inside is computer generated and is in Dutch. When I began this card it was purely for her, but the challenge notification for the Paper Players came in as I was saving the photograph and I realized that it would work for the challenge. I used the diagonal row bottom left to top right. The die cut is a dragonfly, flowers are StampinUp DSP and its a 90th birthday. The die used is from PaperRose, there is also a scalloped circle die cut from Sissix and I went around the edges with a glitter gold pen. The tiny stamps (shown on 2nd photo) are from a GKD Vertical Greetings set and the embellishments are from my stash. I followed a video by Stamp with Tami found here. The numbers are a white precut foam that I coloured with a gold glitter pen. The dragonfly was added to a type of washi tape that is glittered and I added tiny gems for the body, tail and eyes.
These slightly hidden pieces are a pale blue and I stamped the dragonflies in Metallic gold and added a few pearls for decoration. I still have to make the envelope for the card and it will be mailed tomorrow morning. I had fun making this card and intend to make more. They aren’t hard to do, although I had a challenge with the diagonal scoring. It was a bonus that the card fit the challenge Tic Tac Toe board.
