Gate Fold Cards

Hello again,

Wow how lucky are you to get two posts in one day. LOL These two cards are gate fold cards. First time I have made them. I really like this fold. I used my Martha Stewart scoring board to make the folds. Works like a charm. :-) The background on the first card was made using a brayer with rubber bands wrapped around it. I found the technique on Stamp TV. I colored both images with colored pencils and blended them with baby oil. Used my Nesties to cut out the image and mat it. They both came together pretty quickly. Thanks for looking.

Here is a quick card that I made this morning. I just love Daisies, they are my favorite flower, so cute and cheery. :-) I used white for the card base and stamped the daisy in brown ink, colored it in with markers and used some fun flock for the center. I stamped the sentiment in brown ink under the flower. Very easy peasy.
