Gate Fold with a Twist

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

Looks like I caught what ever my DH and DD had! I had to rest for a few days YUCK! I still feel like I could take a nap right now.
But, I finally sold the Cadillac today Yippee!!! They are going to pick it up tonight. Now I can move forward and fix the Toyota and get around town again. I also was able to resolve the picture sizing issue I was having on a few internet sites that I upload my cards on. (Thanks Carol B for your suggestion it helped and you Rock!).

 I was sitting here sipping a cup of coffee happy with my new mad computer skill and my handy negotiating efforts lolol hahah and this card came to mind.
It is a gate fold card with a twist. I put a belly band around the card to hold it shut and a peek a boo card on top of that. I do not know if this has been done before but it was really fun putting it together.

Here are the supplies I used:
Stamp Sets: Bliss, Nature Walk and Whimsical Words.
Card Stock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla,  Riding Hood Red, Not Quite Navy      DSP- Botanical Gazette.
Ink:  Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Pacific Point, and Old Olive.
Accessories: Crochet Ribbon, Build a Brad, Oval Extra Large Punch and Scallop Trim Border Punch.

Hope you like this card. Have a great day and go create something fun.

Awesome 'twist' to the gate fold card. A really neat idea that I might case someday. Love the peek-a-boo card at the front.
