FM#22 Behind Door #... ?

Hey there, Stampin' Friends! Kim here today with a challenge that even threw ME off for a while!  LOL!  Sometimes I want to make a card, so I grab a piece of card stock, cut it in half, and poof...there's my card base.  The biggest decision might be horizontal or vertical??  Hmmm... I have to force myself to use a "fancy fold."  It's silly, because some of these folds are quite easy and add a special touch.  

The gate-fold is one of the easy ones.  Now that I have my NEW Simply Scored tool, I can get my folds just right!  I also have recently started using chipboard...something I avoided for years.  I really like the numbers, because right now I have no number stamps!  Gasp!!  Numbers are great for birthday cards, anniversary cards, or even when you incorporate "texting" phrases.  
So today's challenge goes like this:
  1. Make a card using the Gate-fold technique  (Actually, there are several varieties of gate us what you got!)
  2. Or Make a card using Numbers...any numbers, stamped (if you have them!), chipboard, die cut, stickers...
  3. Or Mash it Up!  and make a card with a gate fold AND numbers!
Check out the fun samples from the Design Team...then make your own fabulous project!  Use keyword FM22 in your online gallery, and link back here.  Can't wait to see what's Behind Door Number...  ;-)
