Bitten By the Bug 2 Challenge - Rainbow Cut

This week over at Bitten by the Bug 2, we are challenging you to use the rainbow cut from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge.  You can find the image on page 55 of the booklet and it is the 4th row down, second image over on the keyboard overlay.

I decided to try my hand at what I will simply call a modified gate-fold card.  In other words, I cut the "gate" and taped the bottom 1/3 of the card shut and embellished it instead of leaving the whole card-front open. I'm not sure why I decided to try the gate-fold this way, it just seemed like the thing to do at the time.  It's not the kind of card I would typically make, even so, I didn't really mind the finished product...until I went to take a photograph and realized that it would not stand up on it's own... where's one of those flower frogs when you need them? :-)

At any rate, all and all, this card is one that I would not typically make, even if it wasn't gate-fold as I don't typically select images like this to do my projects.  However, this is kinda what BBTB2 is all about you know, challenging us to use our Cricut... so, mission accomplished. I used it! :-) Not that I need incentive to do so though! LOL... Do you?

Cardstock: Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores, Lemon Tart, Stampers Select (Papertrey Ink)

Sweet card, Beth. I laughed out loud over your problem with your card standing up to take the photo. I encountered the exact same problem with my joy fold card. Love your design and that tag hanging from the ribbon is a great finishing touch.

How cute this is! what a fun design you did with the gate-fold card....even with the trouble standing up. ;)
I'm probably one of the few scrappers left in the world that doesn't own any kind of die-cutting system. Crazy, huh? ;)
