Fancy Gate Fold #2

Hello to all my blogging friends. I hope this post find you all well and happy!

I just can not get enough of the Gate Fold Card layout. There are so many different card ideas and options that you can make out of it!
Here is a little something I made today, I think it came out nicely. It was one of those cards that just took forever to make lolol.
I changed the color of the background paper and the bow I even added DSP squares at the end. I colored about 8 butterflies until I decided on which four I was going to use. Then I added a very light coat of the Shimmer Paint to the wings of the butterflies. It almost took all day to bring you what I have here. Thank goodness this was a housework free day for me or dinner was going to be late hahahah.

I even did a little something to the inside. I have to put that Bliss stamp set away for awhile. Can we say OK enough of the Bliss stamp already.
Supplies Used:
Stamp Set- Bliss

Classic Ink -Basic Black & Soft Suede.
Card Stock - Cherry Cobbler & Early Espresso.
Designer Series Paper (DSP) - Botanical Gazette.

Embellishments- Glimmer Brads, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Water Color Pencils, Glue Dots, Ultra thin Paint Brush & one 1/6th wedge of a sponge.

My daughter does Teen  Youth Ministry at her church and their slogan for this year is "LOVE IS THE AGENDA"

There group has these really cute Tee Shirts with a Grunge style heart and design on them along with the slogan.
They are having a contest to see who can take the most outrageous and or fun photo with the Generate Logo/Slogan
She asked me to make her a poster of the slogan and then she was going to have lobsters holding up the sign. Here is the Poster I made for her. I could not find the picture on facebook that she took with the lobsters holding up the sign? It was really cute! That's all I have for today.
Have a great day everyone. Now it is your turn, go create something fun.

This is soooooo beautiful !!!!! What size are the pieces that you use as the straps for the fancy gate fold?

Thanks for such a nice comment!
The top and bottom pieces are 3 7/8 x 1 5/8 and the inset DSP piece is 3 3/4 3/8
The center strip goes all the way across the front of the card 4 1/2 x 1 1/2 & 4 3/8 x 1 3/8. I used a scrap piece of card stock to make the card It is a 8 7/8 x 5 1/2" card. You can cut all measurements down to fit a regular 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card I didn't measure it when I say this scrap piece. I would have to make my own envelope if I was going to mail it lololo

This is so great. Can't wait to try it--and now that you already took all day to figure it out--should be a breeze for us! Thanks for sharing
