Last November I made several 'double fold gate' cards to go in my Christmas card collection.
Basically a 12 in strip of card is scored at 2", 4", 8" and 10". Mountain and valley folds are made to make a card which opens out as above but closes to make a gate. Each panel is matted with decorative paper, often rounded at the corners and usually distressed around the edges. I often add an extra rectangle for a greeting. A motif is then adhered to one of the front panels to match the theme...above I had Santa, Rudolph, stockings and festive greetings. Embellishments add the final touches.
This week I have again been looking at the 'double fold gate' fold.
Firstly, I made a Mother's Day card.
This was a replacement to take part in a swap as I believe my first try was lost in the post!!
A lovely image from Kris B at Imagine That.
Papers all from my scrap bags...and sundry embellishments!
I then made this St. Patrick's Day Card as my contribution to
Again the image and sentiment is from Kris B, papers from my scrap bags.
Still on digis and 'green' I then made the following card.
This was to meet the Lacy Sunshine Challenge
using the Lacy Sunshine Triceratops.
The buttons on here by the way are made of coconut shells and are from the Seychelles!
OK - back to my crafting table - and a different fold I think!!
