Twisted Gate Fold

It is so long since I have done a twisted gate fold card but felt that the water lillies from this new stamp set by Crafty Purple Frog deserved some loving

Card Making Tutorial

Fold as you would for a Tri-Fold card

From the top right corner of the first score line, score diagonally to the bottom corner, rotate and repeat

Cut a piece of white paper 9cm by 19cm then cut diagonally . They were then heat embossed using the lily and adhered onto the front panels before being finished with Nuvo Drops

I cut a second piece of white card in the exact same way. Then using the stencil and the distress oxides decorated the 2 triangles and again finished with Nuvo Drops

The image was stamped and coloured using YG3, YG2, YG1 and fussy cut out. The sentiment was stamped onto black and the 2 were adhered
