Valentine's Day Interlocking Gate Fold Card

Hi, everyone!  I recently found some time to just play in my hobby room.  I made this Valentine's Day card by doing a variation of a gate fold card.  This is a picture of it closed.

This is what it looks like when it is partially opened.

For this neat look, I used my Nestabilities to cut the white and scalloped oval.  I then glued the scallop oval onto one half of the gate fold and the white oval on the other half.  Just make sure that you are lining them up before the glue dries.  The cute bear is cut at 3.5" from Cricut's Create A Critter 2 cartridge.  The stamped saying is from Lots Of Pun set available at

It has been an eternity since I have had a project ready in time to enter in challenges.  So here goes, I'm entering them in the following:

I hope you have a nice Valentine's week. 

If you haven't done so already, there's still time to get your name in for a chance to win some great blog candy here!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Sweet Patty! This tri-fold card is so BEAR-y cute :)

I love how you used the frame and oval to help it close. So very clever. I usually use a belly band for tri-fold cards. I must remember this! Your papers are fabulous!
