Pink Gates...

Happy Friday,

Well it looks like I am continuing with the theme of more pastel colours that I don't usually use.  Today, as I am sure you can tell, is pink!  This is a very simple new home card made in layers using a double cut of spellbinders gilded gate die which have been mounted upside down on top of each other.

  1. Lovely card-you could use it for yourself when you move back to the UK!


  2. Hi John
    I am so pleased to see how you have used this gate die , i got some already cut from e/bay and then didn't know how to use them lol, however now i have no excuse .........
    Your card is lovely i like the shades of pink and how you have doubled up on the gates with the ribbon running through looks fantastic .

    Have a good day

  3. Lovely John. Love the gingham.
    Love Val x

  4. Hola John
    Wouldn't describe this as pastel as on my phone screen it looks more red with a peachy coloured ribbon, which does look a bit odd. Gorgeous design though. Love what you have done with the gate die. Will have a look on my tablet when I get home to see what colours show up there.
    Have a great day.

  5. Great idea to "double up" the die My screen is making card look very dark, almost red But I still live it!

  6. Hi John. Love the card, sadly I think the colours are coming up all wrong on my screen. I have pinky/purple background checks then rather bright red smaller checks with a really peach coloured ribbon! All in all it looks rather odd. It is so annoying when technology doesn't work as I know that "in the flesh" it will look so different. I ope the packing is going well. Have a good weekend. Take care.

  7. Morning John,
    Like some of the others I have funny colours on my screen not the sort that would normally be put together, I do love the design and the way you have used the gate die, clever.

  8. Hi John. love the card. Really like how you have used the gate.

  9. Interesting way of using the gate die John, makes a nice feature.

  10. Hi John,
    I have pink with a red matted layer and red embossed square on my screen but it looks great and I love how you have used the gates too.

    Love Sheila xx

    1. Just come through on my phone it looks very red! I promise it's pink lol
