Paper A La Mode Gate Fold Card

This week at Paper A La Mode we are sponsored by 
the home of the Besties
The challenge theme is 
Gate Fold Cards
Splitcoasters has a wonderful tutorial on how to properly make one.

I glad this theme came up because it helped me resolve a couple of issues I've been having with my card making. First I never knew of the additional element to keep the card closed and second I was able to finally figure out why most of my straight cuts are just a little bit off. After following the directions to the letter three times and each time my card didn't quite meet in the middle I was able to determine that my Martha Stewart paper cutter is 1/8" off! WTH?? I thought I'd been doing something wrong. Now that I know, I can adjust accordingly. Enjoy my card and be sure to stop by Paper A La Mode for more inspiration and to enter your own creation!
