Interlocking Gate-fold Masculine Plaid

Welcome to my little space on the blog sphere!
 I hope your day is going well and you are finding some time to be creative.

Today is a quick post showcasing an Interlocking Gate-fold card.
If you would like to view a video tutorial on how to make this card style you can find one linked under the tutorial tab.

I used my Cricut maker to cut our the intricate frame design.

I also added some shimmer with a shimmer pen to the frame for added interest. Listed below are the products I used.
