Love Letters at the Gate!

Oh dear my post titles do get worse!  Lack of imagination for something snappy and witty.  I should explain it's referring to a gate fold card and the Designer Series Paper is Love Letter.

Here's a photo to show the inside

The card base is Riding Hood Red which matches the colours in the DP.  I've matted the panels and squares on the front onto Basic Black.  I used Solid Stripes stamp in versamark on a Basic Black circle then embossed in gold leaving a space at the bottom.  A circle from another piece of the Love Letter DP was punched using 1 3/4" circle extra-large and added on top of the embossing.  I then decorated the half of the circle that shows and added another couple of strips of DP.  A Very Vanilla panel was mounted onto Basic Black.

I'm entering this card into The Friday Mashup which is to use a gatefold card and if you wish to also use numbers.  

If you would like any of the above supplies then please e mail me on  The beautiful Love Letters DP is only available until the end of this month.

Hi Aileen, I too struggle with post titles but your Love Letters at the gate is fine, I got where it came from PLUS the mail box is usually at the gate so it works for me! LOL Your card is fabulous. The addition of that stripped circle just sets the whole card popping. Nice to see you again at the Friday Mashup.
