Di's Digi Stamps Candle Light Mice

Welcome back to Robin's Crafting Nest

This week I created a card that I have never tried before.  I made a Double Gate Fold Card.

I started with 2 pieces of white cardstock that were 8 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches.

I used my Scor-Pal and scored both pieces of cardstock at 2 1/8 inches and at 4 1/4 inches.
Adhere the two large 4 1/4 inch sections together and fold on the score lines to get the Double Gate Fold.  See picture below to see what the fold will look like.

Now that I have my Double Gate Fold Card I needed to decorate it.

I started with the adorable image from Di's Digi Stamps called "Candle Light Mice".  I thought these two were just adorable.  I colored the image with my Copic Markers and then cut die cut it with my Double Stitched Circles dies.  Which gave me this adorable round image to use.

I felt like the inside of the card needed a little something extra.  I decided to use my new Nuvo Aqua Flow Watercolor pens to create a watercolor background and my Dancing Snowflake Frame to frame the sentiment from Power Poppy's Peony Muse stamp set "Sending Love and Light Your Way".  I thought the sentiment went so well with this image because they are lighting the candle.

Double Gate Fold image so you can see how the card folds.
