Fancy Folds Blog Hop

Hello there :)

I hope you are doing well and enjoying the sunshine :) Its been a lovely day here today!! Welcome to another Fancy Fold Blog Hop. the fabulous hop that focuses on a fancy fold techniques. 

And today we are highlighting the Gatefold Card. You can find a video tutorial for this fold HERE and here's my contribution :)

Its was hard to showcase this card upright so you get a flat picture of it :) I hope you don't mind. 
I focused on the watercolored background, this was inspired by a technique my dear friend Steffi Helmschrott shared on her blog. I used Daffodil Delight ink, Melon Mambo and Pumpkin Pie. 

And here's a closer look at the fab effect :) 

I hope you like it now please hop over onto the next stop where my the wonderful friend Tanja Kolar has prepared another gatefold card for you :) 

ENJOY the whole HOP !!!! and thank you for visiting me today, hugs Monica xx
