Simple Gatefold

After making the magic slider card last week, my class wanted something simple this time and asked for a gate fold card. My sample is very simple (and easy enough with the cast on) using an image from Hunkydory's Little Book of Birdsong. My sentiment tag is made from this clothing tag and of course some ribbon "hanger" from my new top. A snippet of mint and white card for the butterfly

I go all the pieces cut out for this and put it together and took a picture but it didn't quite look right and the I found the white mat that should have been under the image! Luckily the topper was stuck on with foam tape which with a little help from the heat gun, came off easily

I'm entering this into the following challenges
Butterfly Challenge - Recycle and/or Ruby


  1. A really pretty card Kimbo and great recycling. Thank you for joining in at The Butterfly challenge. Barbxx GDT

  3. I love the pretty colours you have used. Great re usage of the tag from you know who too. Know the feeling of leaving something out. Have just spent the last 2 days planting up the new herbaceous border. Bought 30 plants sorted them all out by height and spread , worked out where to put them all into the newly dug border.
    Counted up the empty pots out of (accounting mode) habit and only had 29 empties. Eek. Looked all round the border to locate the one I hadn't yet planted, stood back facing the garden in preplewxed mode cos I could see it, turned round and there was the last pot sat on the patio glaring at me. Then had to find a space to put it which completed messed up my planting scheme. The Doc's idea of well dig them up and move em around went down like a dose of salts!! Thankyoy for fluttering by my challenge again. Hugs Mrs A.

  4. Wonderful card Kim - I love the fold you used and also the colours are perfect! Poor you with that thumb (I had to go back a post to find out what happened) but so happy you managed to come and play with us,

    Take care.
