Gatefold Praying for You

Stamp Simply Challenge 109: Create a gatefold card! This is an off-center gatefold, with the sentiment being the tab for opening and closing the "gate."

I also wanted to use my new Our Daily Bread designs release, "Praying for You." This set includes two sentiments and two Bible verses.

My entire design "hinged" on this marvelous Prima flower that I purchased at a discount at Michael's. The cocoa and chocolate colors led me to pull two different colored textured Bazzil papers.

The lighter cocoa color was run through my Cuttlebug, using the Swiss Dots folder. The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Sepia ink onto PaperTrey Ink's Rustic White cardstock, then diecut and embossed with a Spellbinder's Long Classic Rectangle die.

A piece of Stampin' Up Aged Copper HodgePodge hardware holds it all together.
