Gate fold card - JUGS #59

Wanna play with JUGS? *Tee Hee* 

OK, now that I've got that out of my system (simple things amuse simple minds :)), the JUGS to which I am referring is Just Us Girls and Kathryn's got a brand new technique for you to try!
Your challenge this week, should you choose to accept it :), is to make a gate fold card! They're really easy to make and are such a nice way to change up the routine card style.

I used colors from Mona's latest CR84FN Challenge. I absolutely LOVE these colors! And they make a wonderful non-traditional Christmas color palette ;) 

 Here's the inside of my gate fold card...

I chose a metal embellishment to create a belt of ribbon to keep my card closed. I was super excited when I actually saw this little embellie in my stash! So cute! I went against my symmetry-lovin' nature and positioned the tree off to the side to make room for the belt buckle. I think the buckle and the sentiment balance it out a bit though and was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out :)

If you already haven't, see the JUGS site for all the challenge deets. Don't forget to swing by the blogs of the other JUGS DT gals and show them a little love :)

Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls - we love seeing your creations and always appreciate your support!

By the way, thanks so much for all the well wishes! I'm feeling SOOO much better. And Spencer, my bandage-wearin' Golden, is no long bandaged! He's healed completely - a bit of a scar and some reduced range of motion but hopefully nothing a bit of physical therapy can't make a bit better :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
