For this week's WT challenge ~ WT488 Open That Gate, Gate-Fold cards.
I doubled this card up with Shirley's challenge to the CCEE Stampers to use a chicken on our cards this week. Boy, that was some hard choice, I have a LOT of chicken stamps!!
Double gatefold cut from Bazzill, 4” high, scored at 2,4, 8 and 10”. Scraps of paper, IO tree, MFT sun and clouds. Fence diecuts were a RAK - thank you Sandy :D. IO cat die was also a RAK- thank you Rosalia!!
Penny Black Surprise coloured with pencils, sentiment from WSD Crazy For Chickens.
I was worried about a regular belly band damaging the diecuts by being pulled on and off, so I used a magnetic snap to hold this one closed at the back. It's a strip of white Bazzill punched along both edges and decorated with some washi tape.

Now I get it.....I loved your first card, but couldn't work out how you did it, this one makes it very clear LOL. Straight into My Favs. I love your crazy chicken in such an elegant setting. Everything about this makes me smile.
Don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.

Fabulous design, Sabrina!! Love this fun fold with your adorable PB chicken! I have that fence die but had been unable to make it work until I added wax paper between the die and paper this week. Yours looks sensational here!

Great design Sabrina...how cleaver to use a gate die cut on a gate fold card. I love the chicken stamp and the super job you did coloring it. I hope I have time to try a gate fold card...yours look so awesome.
