Fun Fold

Hello, Everyone! Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.

I tried something new with today's card. I incorporated two gate-folded cards into one! The actual size of this card is 6x6. Yup, pretty big.

I colored this Sarah Kay image a while back, probably about three weeks ago for the Stampaive challenge but never finished it. For this card, I followed the sketch at Truly Scrumptious, a very fun one. Once the card is opened, a 5.5 x 5.5 gated-folded card is revealed. This idea came from the challenge over at Whimsy Stamps, Fun Fold. I was watching TV last night and this idea just came to mind so of course, I worked on it right away before I forget. Hope you like it and thanks so much for stopping by!
