Simple Fold...

Happy Saturday,

Don't forget if you are in or around the Crafters Comoanion store today I am demoing form 10am till 4pm so say hello!

I thought I'd share a simple card today, again made with the panel die from the Sandwich Box set I know I've used this loads but the dies in the set are so flexible!


I simply made a gatefold card the same size as the double the die, to make this easy I measure my die in the guillotine and cut the card to size.  I then simply cut the panel die into each of the folds of the card ( I used the gold lustre card from Crafts too as it has a beautiful gold sheen where the light catches it.

I then used the microdot sheets ( so the glue wouldn't show on the inside) to add velum to the back which softens the colour of the pink at the back and adds strength to the card.  I added a simple row of stick on pearls and a ribbon tie.

I added the sentiment, from my everyday sentiment clear stamp set, to a piece of the lustre acrd and cut it out with the small circle die form my mini tags die set.  I added a mat of rosa lustre cut with the larger die in the set and added the smallest of my starflowers cut in vellum.


Enjoy...

  16. Hello John,
    I love this card. In fact, every single one I saw today at Crafter's Companion was gorgeous.
    It was a lovely surprise seeing you and Terri. It was lovely of June to ask me if I wanted to go. Sorry we couldn't stay long but we learned lots in the time we were there.
    Thanks so much! x
