Peek-a-boo Gate Fold Card

So we made this card in my Advanced Cards Class August 2017.  It fit the bill as there was a lot of layering, cutting and some coloring.  I particularly love the colors -  Berry Burst and Smoky Slate.  It is a regular gate fold card just turned horizontal rather than vertical - but the peek-a-boo part comes from cutting the gates a little smaller to let a verse show through the opening.
You can see here how it opens.
The bike parts were cut out, colored and assembled on the rectangular piece of white so that it over laps the two sides of the gate fold.  Then we stamped a few clouds by stamping off Soft sky just to get a hint of cloud.
We then added the beautiful bow with SU's Berry Burst crinkled seam binding - the perfect finish for this card.  The ladies had a few sentiments to choose from, from the Rose Wonder set, to complete their work of art.
Fun day, Fun card, Fun ladies - It's all about the FUN!!  See you soon! ~Maureen
