I Must Try Harder!

Good Morning All,

After my spell of lines yesterday, and the lovely comments from Heather giving me absolution I did try harder and came up with this...

This is a gatefold card with a double fold, its easier to see what I mean on this next picture...

I used a collection of Spellbinders Labels Four dies, standard, Elegant and Gold.



  1. Lovely card john, from new teamie over at hobbycutz x

  2. Oooo! Very ingenious! Love your colour combination. This is a great card John well put together. I shan't be putting 'see me' at the bottom of your work.;)

    I have worked out where your comments have been going - into my spam folder for some reason.

    If you go into blogger and go to comments then Spam you may find some missing comments. Unfortunately you onl know by going to look I had several most were spam but then I found yours from this morning if you mark it 'Not spam' it then posts it on the person's blog! Have a look.

  3. Superb card - the Labels Four shape is one of my absolute favourites and you've worked wonders with it. A pefect example of 'building on the core' :) x

  4. Hi John
    I missed your yesterdays card until now { i thought you were having a well deserved day off } BUt getting back to your card i think it was a lovely idea, and those little crochet flowers are beautiful.

    Todays card looks very difficult to me John, superb and very intricate and i love the colors and papers ,well done

  5. Hola Juan
    See, you are all slowly coming over to the bright side hahaha (imagine menacing laugh!)
    Love the way you have done this. Very effective and great way of matching the dies up.
    I give it an A.

  6. Good morning John, you have been a busy boy with all your shifts so I hope you have time for a good snooze today. I have just picked up yesterday's card and I love the little crochet flowers, they really do add "something" to the ensemble. Today's card, sorry, does not appeal, I think it is the striped paper detracting from the filigree shapes, just a bit too much content. Best wishes Jackie

  7. Morning John,
    Just looked at yesterday project, love the little flowers and the gentle colours,
    Sorry not keen on today's colours but love the card.

  8. Hi John. Thats very clever folding. Love the colours but does that say SYRUP?
    Love Val x

  9. Hi John fantastic card ,love every thing about it.I have not made a gatefold card for a long time.thanks for the inspiration.

  10. John, what a lovely card. I liked the way you have layered and cut dies in half. I think it is a great idea to put the bow at a different angle, I normally just have the ends of the bow pointing down, but I will try and do something different next time. Janice x

  11. What a stunning card John, gorgeous colours and loving your dies..Lozzy x
