Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #16 - Fun With Folds

Good morning and welcome to Whimsical Wednesday Challenge 16 - Fun With Folds. 
The challenge this time is to create a card that is anything but a shape or A2 style.  Examples: easel, gatefold, waterfall.
I chose to do a gatefold birthday card.  I picked up a Martha Stewart paper pad at Joanns this weekend on clearance.  I don't know why it was on clearance I had never seen it before.  It has some gorgeous coordinating paper including some holographic sheets.  I love this pad and suggest it for anyone in need of birthday prints!




I cut my cardstock at 8" wide by 6" high, scored it at 2" and 6" and then attached my scallop to the left side only with Zip Dry glue.  I love this glue because it drys so very fast and any that gets on the edges wipes right off!

 Materials:
Cricut Cartridge Once Upon a Princess and Gypsy for cupcake cut at 2.75"
Wow So Many Candles stamp set  -  My Creative Time
Hawaiian Shores, Lemon Tart and Lavendar Moon Cardstock  -  Papertrey Ink
Festive Paper Pad  -  Martha Stewart
Oval and Scallop Nestabilities
Worn Lipstick and Broken China Distress Inks
Crystal Stickles
White Gel Pen
Zip Dry Paper Glue

Please go over to the Whimsical Wednesday blog to see the rest of the Design Team's Creations.  We would love for you to link up your projects and join us for this challenge!!
Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I am so lucky to have my "computer" friends!
Love and Hugs,
Cathryn :)

Cathryn,
Your card is so beautiful. I have never seen these papers before. They are wonderful. So glad you found them on clearance. Your gate fold card is just wonderful, and sure to please the lucky one who receives it.
