Sherrod Studio Tuesday Throwdown


Hello and a happy Tuesday to you! Today's challenge over on the Sherrod Studio blog is to make a gatefold card. Honestly I'd never done one of these before and really enjoyed it. The nice thing about them I thought anyway, was they kind of force you to do something to the inside which I usually just leave blank. For my card I used the super sweet set, Down Home Blessings. I colored my image with a mix of Copics and Prismacolor pencils. I hope you can play along with us. Thanks for stopping by:)

Love how you have that extra fold inside your card to stretch it out even longer when it's opened. Such pretty coloring too. :)
