Yoga Gate Fold Card

I was asked to make a birthday card by my yoga instructor for one of her clients. I used MFT's Serenity Now set and paper pieced her top to match the patterned paper. The button keeps the gate fold closed. The outside panel pieces were cut to: 4 1/8" x 2 3/8" I also paper pieced the inside and colored the rest with prisma pencils and gamsol. I used Cuttlebug swiss dots on the side panels and an MFT sentiment and I "believe" a Hero Arts sentiment. I left the right side area open to be filled in by the gift-giver.
I changed the dimensions of the template that I had so it fit a little better in an A2 envelope. I cut the cardstock to 4 1/4" x 10" and scored each side at 2 1/2" The inside side panel pieces were cut to 4" x 2 1/4" and the middle inside panel was cut to 4" x 4 3/4". Thanks for looking!

This is fabulous. I love the clever little button closure. Gatefold always stump me on keeping them closed.
