Gate-fold Card

Hi everyone,

I am thrilled and excited to share with you my first official post for the Heartfelt Creations DT.  They are all such a talented bunch of ladies and I am honored to be included on the team with them.

I made this flower that I was so proud of and needed a card to showcase the flower.  For that reason a gate-fold card was perfect.
