Seahorse Gatefold

Hi there šŸ™‚ I had an idea with these seahorses with an image I’d printed out, but it didn’t work out at all, so rather than take the 2 steps to put the dies away, I came up with this šŸ™‚ These 2 dies screamed gatefold card, so I listened! lol After assembling the card so the 2 seahorses lined up facing each other, I went to work on the inside.

I dug into my dies again, and cut some pretty seashells and seaweed to keep with the underwater theme, then added a birthday sentiment. A belly band with some black and white ribbon holds everything closed for sending. Love the dramatic black and white of this whole card!

I’d like to enter this in the following:
