Be Inspired #42 National Friendship Day

Welcome to Cuttlebug Challenge - Be Inspired Wednesday! We are celebrating National Friendship Week with a Gatefold card challenge.

I'm also tickled to be using our new sponsor's Core'dination's paper in this monochormatic card. I think I'll show you all about it on my next video :-)

For this gatefold card, I used my Scor-It, and double scored my front so I could have an additional panel, which I embossed with a piece of a Swiss Dots folder. I have an extra folder, which I cut in half, and then cut one of those halves in half me quarter pieces, that work so well in being able to emboss nice vertical matching strips.

My new folder for this card is the Moroccan Folder, and it has a wonderful repeating pattern, so if you are working on a project that requires longer pieces, consider this folder, as it will match up, and you can continue to emboss. Check out Shantaie's project on Cuttlebug Challenge from Saturday. It's a great example.

Hope you will join the Cuttlebug Challenge...make a gatefold card for a friend. The design team has a bunch of ideas for you on the Blog...and this is the last week to enter the contest to win all of the new Cuttlebug Folders...just complete the four weeks challenges (with ANY folders you might have) and you could win!!! We want to see at least 100 participants, and 1500 members by the end of the month...could you invite a friend? Thanks!

I'm packing to head off to CHA tomorrow.....and I have a big surprise to share .... nope you'll have to wait just a little bit .....

Happy crafting ~

PS... Thanks to my nephew, Bret, for my new signature! .....SO CUTE!!! Watch for his ad coming soon, so you can have one, too!!

Oh My...what a beautiful card. Love the soft colors. I usually don't do gate cards because they look so plain but there is nothing plain about this one. You have really opened my eyes to the possibilities!
