Gatefold Bee Balm...

 Happy Wednesday,

I really feel that this card shows exactly the versatility I wanted to get from the Bee Balm collection.  Ive used the Ovals and the Background here to make this gatefold card.

I stared by cutting 2 extended backgrounds, one in Violet linen card and one in white  and backed them with the alternate colour.  I cut these down the centre and mounted them onto the front of a piece of A4 card folded, using the Groovy score board which has channels for this, into a gate fold card.

I then cut the Large semi circle using the detail and outline die backing them with white.  I added these on each side of the gatefold to give 2 handles to open the card.

I added  a piece made with the butterfly media plate in the centre.



  1. Morning John, a very unusual card today but beautiful.
