Circle inside a circle Gatefold Snowflake Card

Whew that title was a mouth full!  This card is from Dutch Paper Craft's memory Box Snowflake release.  I am telling you, this bundle is many things to do with just a few dies.    What is the saying, "It's just a tip of the iceberg"!

For this card i wanted to do a new "fancy fold" for me.  It's really not hard if you check it out.  It's just a circle adhered to one side (right) and a cut out circle on the left.

I used the Memory Box Sussex Snowflake #98648 and the Sussex Globe #98656 together for the center.  I also used Gabriella Border #98649 around the outside of the circles.
A couple of things about the outside of this card.  The edges were cut using one of my favorite dies called Charlotte Border #98242.  This border is different then most because it doesn't cut through on one side..sort of like working with a border punch.   The kraft Gabriella border is part of the release but i wanted to say that because of it's delicate lines, it is flexible and can curve like i did here..otherwise it can be as shown on the packaging in a straight line.  Below i've slightly opened the card so you can see how it works, and it can stand up.

I've also finished off the inside of this card.  I used the "negative part" of the Sussex Snowflake and embossed the inside using a LifeStyle Crafts snowflake embossing folder EF-A2-056, any would do.  The cute little elf is from A Day For Daisies.  I've added a sentiment to the sent of the "candy" and used Inkessentials Glossy Accents on top of the sentiment.
