Blue and Cream Gate Fold Card

Evening all, today I have my DT card for Papermilldirect we are making gate fold cards this week.  I don't usually make gatefold cards except for wedding invitations so was drawn to this card which I think would do for any occasion, and I do love butterflies.

As I have not had my Silhouette Cameo out for a while I thought I would make my card from a cutting file by Daniela Angelova  purchased from the Silhouette Store.  This is such a pretty cutting file and would be gorgeous for wedding invitations in any colour or anniversaries, maybe red and cream for a ruby anniversary.

I cut the butterflies and floral panels from papermilldirect ivory linen cardstock and cut a square insert to add my greeting, the base card was cut from papermilldirect Marine blue cardstock, this is such a pretty blue it goes so well with the ivory linen.

To add a little interest I cut two butterflies for the fastening and stamped both the card and top  butterfly with broken china distress ink using Indigo Blu's Floral Swirl FS1.  The insert was stamped with a sentiment from Clearly Besotted Fancy Sayings sentiment stamps.

Did you see the papermilldirect newsletter on the 29th April? Exciting news of changes at the Mill and also a competition for 4 participants to win some goodies.  There is still time to enter, details are on the blog HERE and you have until midnight on 8th May to enter.
