Super-Gate fold scenics

Super Gate Fold or as I also call it, Hinged Gate Fold.

This first one is called "Love Lives Here".  The stamp is by Our Daily Bread Designs.  The dies are by Joy, Memory Box, I.O., and Cottage Cuts.  This one also has extra layers so the purple is 2 3/4" X 4 1/4" on the sides, 5 1/8" X 4 1/4" on the inside.  Then light blue at 2 1/2" X 4" and 4 7/8" X 4 1/4" for the center inside.  I used Glossy Accents (Diamond Glase or Crystal Effects would be the same) on the icicles and Stickles along with loose glitter on the rest of the snow. I rubbed white dye ink on the embossed sky and the bricks of the house before adding anything to them.  Here in the Sierra Nevada Mountains where I live, we have Blue Jays/Steller Jays instead of cardinals so that is why my birds are blue.  They have the same crested head as the cardinal.
I'm not sure who makes the embossing folder because there is no name on it (I should have kept the packaging). The ground is just torn white card stock.  I used the right deer rear end and bird to tuck my front in for a closure.
This one has no extra matting so it is just like the pattern above.  I used a ribbon for closure on this one.
The dies are from Our Daily Bread Designs, Cottage Cuts, Sue Wilson, Sizzix and Dee's Distinctively. 
I hope you have enjoyed these as much as I had making them, it was really fun!  You could really do ANY kind of scene with these.
Thanks for visiting!
