The Silver Girls

This is my card for the limited supplies challenge on Split Coast - to have your card open in a different way - I used the gate fold style where you score the sides so they fold in and meet in the middle. Then I cut a Nestability scalloped rectangle to attach to the left panel

You can see Beate's tutorial for a gatefold card here. I attached a ribbon under the front panel, around the back to the other side so my card can tie shut. Basically the card is 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" and you score it at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8" holding it the long way. Here you can see the ribbon going under the image and around the back.

A friend at work asked me to make an anniversary card for her to give to her boss - they have been working together for 25 years! So it's their Silver !! LOL!!and she wanted it to be humorous.

So on the front you see these 2 young ladies talking about starting out together.

And on the inside you see these two 'older' ladies talking about how nothing has changed over all that time!!

Here you can see how the front panel overlaps the left side and where the ribbon comes out.

I hope that my friend likes it and her boss isn't offended!! They really both look a lot like the girls on the front of the card (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!)
