Good Monday Morning Ladies,
Well something a little different for the Sketch Challenge this week, it is a gatefold card, I am sure that you all know what that is but for anyone new to card making here are as couple of diagrams ....
Most score boards have the score points for a Gatefold card, if not the easiest easy to to it to trim your A4 card down to 10 inches along the longest side, then you just score at 2 1\2 inch and 7 1/2 inch, fold and crease and you have your gatefold card.
I used my new 'Bella Rose' papers to decorate my card, I then die cut two heart die cuts that link together to keep the card closed, the bottom heart is attached to the right side of the card and the top heart is attached to the left.
I arranged some pink flowers into both hearts and three pearls. I used Sue Wilson's pierced flags to put my sentiment in and added a few flowers and pearls to finish the card. The inside was decorated with the same papers.
My second card was just to demonstrate the simplicity of the card design, I used the Toy Soldier paper from an old Kanban kit, using the matching decoupage to create the focal point across the join.
The Sketch card itself just uses a square, you could just do the same or change it up for any shape you fancy, a favourite die shape for example or a topper!
I can't wait to see what you come up with.
If you can't be fussed with making a gatefold card just use the sketch as a flat card front. I want bit to be achievable by everybody.
Any questions please don't hesitate to contact me xx
Have a lovely day ladies, it looks like it is going to get seriously cold later this week, so don't put your thermal knickers and vest away yet!!
Love and hugs
