First Card of 2012

Hi bloggers. Well, I've finally gotten back to my crafting table for a bit. Decided to make a fancy-fold card, just cause I always find those to be extra fun!

This fold is called a "Gate Fold" card. It's very simple, and there's so much you can do with it! If you're interested in trying one of these cards yourself, head on over to Split Coast Stampers  for the tutorial. I'm sure you'll enjoy making it too!! :)

Here's my card:

I used some new stamps...and of course my cuttlebug to do the background. Simplicity always works for me :) TFL :)
