Pisces Gatefold Card (IC #3)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this CAS (clean and simple), one layer, Pisces Gatefold Card. :o)

This is a GATEFOLD CARD, an interactive card with a special folding and opening.

I made this Interactive Card (IC) for my Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces 2019 personal challenge. If you want to find out more about it, just follow the link provided. :o)

This is a third type of IC I made for my challenge. I made 15 different types of interactive cards during Pisces period, which was my personal challenge. As I don't have a lot of die-cuts, I used all possible tools I have, combined this and that, planned, sketched... I completed my challenge, achieved my goals and had a lot of fun. I wrote a short review about the challenge here.

How I made this card....

To make this card I used super cute Pisces stamp from Mama Elephant 'Cosmic Stars' and a sentiment from Mama Elephant 'Starry Night' stamp set.

For a card base I used a white cardstock paper cut to 8 3/4" x 5". I scored the paper at 2 1/2" and 6 1/4", as shown at picture below, and folded paper along scored lines.

At this point gate flaps of my card were overlapping. I unfolded the card base, drew lines with a pencil and stamped the Pisces image on each flap, as shown at picture below.

After stamping, I cut along lines drawn with the pencil and along stamped images, as shown on the picture below.

At this point my card base was ready for coloring. I erased pencil marks and traced images' edges with a black marker. I colored Pisces image with TOZ Artist Colored Pencils. I drew white highlights with a white gel pen.

Lastly, I created a belt that will keep card closed. I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a vellum paper and cut it to a desirable size. I wrapped the vellum belt around the card (not too tight), removed it and glued two endings together to form a belt. I placed the belt on the card to keep it closed and my card was finished. :o)

This is my first take on a gateflod card and I LOVE how it turned out. :o)

Card measurements: 94 mm x 127 mm (3 3/4" x 5")
