Hello again

Hi there! Sorry this is later than you are all used to. My hubby and I are going out of town and I am trying to get my kiddos organized.....you all know how that is...lol!
I am super excited to be apart of such an awesome group of ladies! Thanks Pam for letting me join in! Enough rambling and on to the design. I decided to make a card for my project. With all the different types of cards.....side step.....tri-fold......etc. I designed a gate fold card using Accent Essentials for the base....also used Home Decor and Mini Monograms.
Here is the inside of the card, isn't it beautiful?

Once all my pieces were cut I inked all pieces using distress ink....love it.....it gives such depth.
Then of course I had to do some stitching.......I just punched my holes and used the heavy machine thread. Next....put it all together!
I tried to take some photos of my layout on the gypsy.....they aren't as clear as I would have liked but I think you can get a pretty good idea how I set up my pages.
I do not have exact measurements for the pieces because on some of the images I tugged and stretched to get them the way I wanted. The finished size of this card is 4.25x4.50 inches. I have never shared a file but I will work on it this weekend while I am away so you all can download. I will post that on my blog over at AmysScrappySpace
I sure hope you like my project! It was fun and I want to thank Pam again for letting me be a part of her team.
Thanks Sassy for helping me set this up.....I was having technical difficulties. Thanks for your patience.....have a great day! See you next month, Amy!
