This week’s JUGS challenge is to make a gatefold card.  I had just made one of these for my upcoming stamp camp, but I didn’t want to share that one quite yet….I like to keep my campers in suspense!  So I whipped up a quick little card for a recent hostess—not too complicated, because I like to think that when they receive my cards, they can say “I can do that!” and feel that they don’t need tons of products to make a nice card!  She loves pink, so here it is:


The only thing about gatefold cards is that they’re difficult to photograph!  Here’s the open view:


I am not real thrilled with the vellum scallop behind the butterflies….it makes the vellum look like a sort of mauve color---but hopefully my hostess won’t mind!  Maybe the bling will distract! LOL!  I always leave the inside blank so that they can use it for their own occasion!  Thanks for visiting today!

  1. woohoo ~ love you card my friend ~ I'm hoping to play along with week ~ super busy, but going to try ~ have a super week ~ TFS LeAnne!

  2. Oh I love this! The pink along with the butterflies make for one beautiful card! Thanks for playing along with our JUGs challenge, LeAnne!

  3. This is magnificent LeAnne! I adore the pink and the sweet little butterflies :) Awesome gate fold card! Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls!
    I agree, I did find my card a bit of a challenge to photograph but they sure are fun to make :)
    Gorgeous pics of the sweet little lady - especially love the little hand :)

  4. This IS lovely, LeAnne! It's perfectly inviting and memorable - PLUS, it looks like it was a lot of fun to make! Double bonus! You're fabulous!

  5. LOVELY lovely LeAnne - I DO like the velum touches and I agree that they are hard to Photograph. I sometimes use removable adhesive - photograph then take OFF the adhesive. Thanks for trying the JUGS' technique challenge this week! :-)

  6. I like that the vellum is a bit of a different color. On my monitor it looks just fine.
    The pink butterflies are a bit of a break from all the Holly and Snowmen we all seem to be posting.

  7. Oh, see... my first thought was that I LOVE how the vellum looks! Beautiful design, LeAnne!

  8. Love the pink and the butterflies are awesome! You did a fab job with the gate fold card LeAnne!

    Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls this week!
