Smile, Camera, Action!

Hey everyone! I hope your all keeping safe! Today I'm back with another fun gate fold card. I just love making these cards at the minute so don't be surprised if you see a few more from me lol. I'm going to link a simple Youtube video on how to make a gate fold card as if your like me I pick things up quicker by watching them than reading them -

 I used a piece of A4 black card for my base. I scored it at 7.2cms, 21.6cms and 28.8cms. Then I folded my card at the score lines to create my gate fold base. Looking through my paper stash I found this lovely camera background. I measured out four pieces at 6.7cms by 20.5cms. I used my double sided tape to secure two pieces to the front of my card and two to the inside of my card. Then I cut out a piece of white card measuring 20.5cms by 13.9cms and stuck it to the middle of the inside of my card. To add a bit of detail I cut out two cameras from my patterned paper and used double sided tape to stick one to the top of my white card and one to the bottom.

 I decided this cat mug shot was perfect for this card as the cat is the image of the recipient's cat. I sized and printed it off. I also printed ' To A Special Daughter On Your Birthday '. Using my scissors I cut them both out and matted them using black card. I used one of my wave edge patterned scissors to cut around both of them. Next I put glue dots on the left side of both my topper and sentiment and stuck them on to the front left side
of my card. To finish it off I stuck three black gems into each corner. That's it! I hope you enjoyed it. Thanks for looking!
