Interlocking gate fold card

I made these cards quite a while ago, but needed to water color the roses and leaves, so they had been sitting off to the side of my work area for way too long. I am currently attempting to finish up a bunch of half completed projects. I am highly motivated in the beginning of projects but get bored fairly quickly. So I have quite the stack of half done items. *face palm*

Aren't these gorgeous? And unique? You know I found the inspiration here on Pinterest, and then changed up a few little items. I did not layer the card onto a colored cardstock base for one thing, and did not wrap the ribbon around to the back side of the card. Instead I used my new Imaginisce ribbon cutter. If you haven't seen one yet, it's pretty cool. It has a hot wire that cuts through and seals the ends of the ribbon at the same time. So you get a clean end that won't ravel.

This view is just to give you an idea of how the pieces are adhered to the front gate folds. I adhered the ribbon down and then with the card flat and both fronts folded flat centered the stamped piece over it with only half covered with tape. Then with little dots of glue on half of the black frame, I centered it over the top of the adhered stamped piece. That's how you get it centered and interlocking. I hope that makes sense.

Find inspiration everywhere! Go... Create something fun & fabulous. Enjoy!
