Gatefold card

Hi everyone!

We are the first of the month and this means there is a new challenge at House of Cards. In this challenge we want to do some folding, but don't be afraid -- it's a very easy thing!
Do you know Gatefold cards?? ----- because this is what we would love to see  ;)

Look here is mine.....

It was very easy to do --- one folding on the left and the same on the right and I had my base card! 
I cut two panels from my homemade patterned paper (one for each gate) and I also cut a square from a white cardstock in which I cut another square to get a matching frame. Then I embossed the frame and inked it with "TEAL" from Colorbox. Next, I cut a square of corrugated paper in the same size as the square "inside the frame"--- at the same time I reduced the small white square of a few millimeters and glued it together with the corrugated paper.

To finish, I stamped the images and fixed the square with the frame to the card. ( The frame on the left gate and the square on the right gate)
The very last thing was to add the die-cut and some shimmer! 

I hope you like it .....

Now, look at this picture and create a gatefold card and/or use the colors.

Happy folding! 😉
