Interlocking Gate Fold with Boho Indigo and Celebrate Sunflowers

I'm so happy to have you join me today.  The Boho Indigo Product Medley is my favorite product in the Annual Catalog.  That's saying a lot.  Look on page 9 to read all about it.  I have a fantastic interlocking gate fold card with that gorgeous Boho Indigo designer series paper.  You are going to love this.

The base of this card is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  That's the size of a normal card.  Score the card base at 2 1/8 from each side.  Fold the sides towards the center to make a gate.

For the front of each gate cut a panel (need 2) of Night of Navy card stock to 2 x 5 3/8..  You will need 2 of the Boho Indigo Designer Series Paper of the same design that measure 1 7/8 x 5 1/4..  Adhere the navy piece and the the designer paper.

For the inside of the card, use a piece of Very Vanilla measuring 4 x 5 1/4.  Stamp the saying from Celebrate Sunflowers in Night of Navy ink.  Add a leaf cut using the Boho Indigo dies in Old Olive card stock.

To make the interlocking panels, cut two pieces of Night of Navy to 2 1/4 x 4.  Cut two pieces of the same pattern that measure 2 1/8 x 3 7/8.  Adhere the designer paper to the navy card stock.

Take one of the pieces and adhere it to the top left gate.  The other piece is adhered to the bottom right gate.  I would lay both of these panels on the card first and try to keep the top and bottom spaces the same.  Notice that only half of these panels are glued.  This makes the interlocking part of the card.

Stamp three of the smaller sunflowers on Very Vanilla using Night of Navy ink.  Color in the flowers with a Misty Moonlight blend.  The centers are colored with the Light and Dark Mango Melody.  The leaves are Light and Dark Old Olive blends.  

Cut out the sunflowers with the Sunflowers dies.  Add these 3 sunflowers with dimensionals.  One goes on the upper right and two go on the lower left.  Add leaves cut from the Boho Indigo dies around the flowers.

The saying is from the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set.  Stamp in Night of Navy.  Fussy cut the saying and add to the card front as shown.

That's all there is!  This card looks like it would be so hard.  It's not!
