Gate Fold It Is!

We all make A2 size cards, usually.  Some are side fold and some top fold.  Today I would like you to change that, and make a Gate Fold card.  The cut and size are still the same, only the score is different.  The Gate Fold makes such an elegant card.  You friends will love the different look. 
Hi Barbara Campbell here, I am so very excited to be hosting this week, and I will be doing the first week of each month until the end of the year.  Happy to be helping out Joyce as she does a wonderful job moderating this challenge. 

 Our sponsor this week is Gina K Designs.

The prize is a great grab bag. You can check the link above to see what others have won.

Here is my example of the gate fold card. 
 It is so easy to coordinate a card with Gina K Designs as she has made it easy for us.  Here, I have used Gina's Ocean Mist card stock and the coordinating Shabby Spring design paper pack.  I also used the Ocean Mist and Warm cocoa inks.
That Master Butterfly stamp is my favorite and the sentiment inside is from Stately Flowers 7, by Melanie Muenchinger, for Gina K.
Oval Stitched Die is Lil'Inker

I finished the inside of this card by cutting out some of the butterflies and the dots stamp from Stately Flowers 7.  You no NOT need to finish the inside of your project.

Have fun and I can't wait to see what you all do!
