Gate-Folded Thank You Mini Cards

Gate-Folded Thank You Mini Cards
Made this mini card for one of my returning Copic markers buyers. I am really appreciate for his support on my mini business!

Sketch Saturday Week #433
For this card, I am adopting Sketch Saturday Week #433 as shown above. This sketch has prompted me to make a gate-folded card which is just perfect for few challenges that call for fancy or many fold cards!

As I decided to make gate-folded mini card, the space is really limited. Thus, I opt for die cut sentiment which prompt me to make two (2) cards using both the negative and positive die cut. I only need one card but I can keep  another one for later use. 

Gate-Folded Thank You Mini Cards - mirror sketch version using negative die
First, I die cut circles from metallic card stock that have mirror effect as well from green sticker. The metallic circles will be the base in which I layer both the negative and positive die cut onto it. The 'Thank You' sentiment is die cut onto the green sticker circles. The sticker elements really helps to adhere things faster and nicely onto the metallic circles.

On a pale yellow card bases, I die cut the 'gate' to make a nice gate edges. Then, the metallic circles are adhere onto the gate as in sketch, one to the left and another to the right. One card will follow the sketch exactly and another one will be mirror of it, thus the left and right.

Gate-Folded Thank You Mini Cards - original sketch version using positive die
For little embellishment and to help the gate-folded card stay closed, I stamp two (2) birds that have one look to the front and another look to the right direction. They are colored using Copic markers and I added some pattern to their scarf using silver glitter pen, dots for the bird look to the front and stripes for the bird looking to the right. Then, they are die cut using the matching die and adhere to the card base as in sketch using dimensional dots. The birds are placed just nice to make a simple snap to hold the metallic circles in close mode.

Inside the card bases, a blue trimmed card stock is layered onto them. I also die cut another two (2) white circles to attach on top of the blue layer that coordinate its position with the metallic circles. The white circles will be like hidden message space behind the metallic circles.
