A2 gate fold card ...butterfly!

Hi everyone. I hope you are well and having a great. The weather here today was like Spring! I love warm weather, because I get to see a lot of beautiful butterflies. I love butterflies ;) I'm hoping Spring come early this year! Here is a butterfly card I made today. I used Paisley Cartridge to cut butterfly button on page #48 of handbook. I cut butterfly button 2 times @ 2 3/4 in and pop dot and layered it . I embossed card with Cuttlebug folder (Perfectly Paisley).

Here is how I made this A2 gate fold card. I used a scoring board to make score lines on cardstock.

(1) Start with a 8 1/2 in x 5 1/2 in cardstock
(2) Score at 2 1/8 in mark and then at 6 3/8 mark
(3) Fold on score lines. The card is A2 size ( 4 1/4 in x 5 1/2 in) folded.

I stamped Thank you inside of card. I can never say enough thank you to someone who did something nice for me or helped me in some way ;)

This card is for these challenges
