I'm playing along - the Cuttlebug Spot!

Don't really mean to be so dramatic but I'm venturing out a bit LOL - to the Cuttlebug Spot! This site has weekly challenges and this week's challenge is to create a gatefold card.  I've never done one before as I normally make size A2 cards.  A few weeks ago I tried the tri-shutter card.  Last week the Cuttlebug Spot was doing step cards and I so wanted to play along but didn't have the time :(  This is the first time I'm entering a challenge outside of the Cricut Circle Blog.  And in the process I'm also discovering, and now following (yey!), other wonderful crafty bloggers!

Now about the card.....I made this card for my youngest niece who is turning 3 on Saturday, and who loves Snow White!  The card is 6 x 6.  The Snow White cut is from the Happily Ever After cart - she wasn't too bad to assemble ;). 

The inside sentiment is all computer generated and cut to size then I inked all around.  The corner pieces were from the Picturesque cart. 

The two small strips on the inside  of the card were embossed with one of the Organic Flourish border CB folders.  I punched one side of the strips with a Martha Stewart border punch and then added purple irock gems.  I also inked all around the strips.

I love this Martha Stewart border punch that I also went ahead and punched the top and the bottom of the inside of the card. 

Thanks for looking and happy crafting ;)!

Oh WOW! This is just darling! I always admire people who assemble the Disney characters. So glad you ventured out to join other challenges. You might check out BBTB2 sometime too since you're a Cricut lover. Love the embossing you used inside. Thanks for playing along with The Cuttlebug Spot this week. xxD
