Off Centre Gate Fold.

We are into week 3 of the Butterfly challenge and I have a different version of a Gatefold card to show this time.

#123 Butterfly Wheel with G for Gate Fold 

Card uses  Gate Fold/Granny Smith/ Butterfly from the wheel. I have added a tutorial for this card over on the butterfly blog under the  Card Shapes tag. This one is Version III  'Off Centre Gate fold'.
 The design paper is a  freebie from  Making Cards magazine March 2015  Called ' Potted Petals.'
Topper images are also a freebie magazine set which included the sentiment.  The butterfly is a puffer dimensional one.  I adhered one of the flowers to hang over the edge and then adhered a leaf on the opposite flap (using a 3D pad) for the flower to tuck behind thus forming the closure.
 Above the card partially open and below fully opened.

Challenge has another 2 weeks to run. I will be posting one more design idea here next week.  Hope you will play along.

What a lovely take on the design of the gate fold card, lovely flowers but look as I may I have not spotted the apple (Granny Smith).

I like the off-center gatefold look with this card. Covering it with all those flowers (and the butterfly) adds to the beauty! Very pretty card!

What a great idea offsetting the fold and loving your colour palette, very summery, just a shame the weather doesn't realise it's that time of year.
