Fun Fold Friday: Interlocking Gate Fold Card

Hi Everyone!

I am currently on vacation; but as I said in my post the other day, I do have a few things pre-scheduled to share with you, including this week's Fun Fold Friday Card

This card came about as a result of a mistake I made last week when designing the Lever Card that I shared. I had a tri fold card; but needed a way to close it. After a little bit of scouring through Pinterest boards, I saw a card that had an interlocking closure and decided that was perfect!

It was really simple to put together. I just die cut some a circle frame and then cut another smaller circle. I partially adhered the larger circle to the left panel on the card front and then did the same with the smaller white circle on the right side of the card.

I originally planned to put a small sentiment on the little white circle in the center; but then decided to put a larger sentiment on the inside at the bottom center of the panel. This sentiment is from Altenew's Birthday Greetings.

To finish the front, I simply added some a flower and some blingy stickers around the edges of the circle.

I hope you all have a fabulous 4th of July. Be sure to check out my reeent family post about "Teaching your kids that July 4th is much more than BBQ and Fireworks" 

I will be back again soon!
