Gate fold with a Twist Card and a freebie


Hopefully this is the last cad I will be making after a dead line!  I only belong two three swap groups, good thing because this summer I've had a difficult time keeping up!  This card was for a "Gatefold with a Twist" card.  
You can go here to watch the tutorial by my friend Jen Evers: 

I have never made one of these cards and probably never will again.  That is one of the good things 
about swaps and challenges, you try things you normally wouldn't and it helps you grow in your art!


This card basically has two viewing areas, the top with a gate fold:


which opens to this:

which then flips up to the second viewing area:



The base size of the card is 5.5x4.25 but because of the dimension it is quite thick.
I used the Authentique paper pad called Legacy, I really like this paper, great colors and intresting designs!! 

I will leave the sentiment here for you  and for your card making:



I did this in the Papyrus font
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have  great weekend!
