Gatefold card

Hello everyone! It's Henriette here today sharing a gatefold card.

On this card I used the sentiment heart forget. I just love this sentiment and I wanted to make a card with hearts on it and also a broken heart. A gatefold card is what came to my mind.

Here is my step-by-step tutorial.
First I've made a gatefold card using my scor-pal and vanilla cardstock.

The panels are made from taupe cardstock and design paper from Stampin Up.

I've used a heart die (from ebay), bokeh paper and the old cuttle bug to cut out the heart shape.
I've traced the die on pink cardstock and placed that behind the die cut. Then I cut it in half.

With my mini misti  I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the gatefold. I did not use an inkpad for this but a ranger distress marker. It was the only taupe kind of color I had in my stash.

Finally I've glued on the panels and the heart pieces, added some enamel dots and wrap a piece of stringe around the card.

It's nice to create a different kind of card instead of the usual square or rectangular ones.
I hadn't make a gatefold card in a long time but this was the perfect card for this great sentiment.
I hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by. 

Hugs, Henriette.
