Hello! I am getting ready to be computerless (is that a word?) for the next 10 days so I'm trying to get my post up before the computer goes down. I had been busy working on a Gatefold card that went a bit wild. I saw the original on a Graphic 45 post and thought since I have alot of Graphic 45 scraps I'm going to give it a whirl. This card measures 5.5" x 7" an odd size yes and if I was more careful it should have only been a 5 x 7. I'll explain that later.
On the left is the card closed with a "Belly Band" to keep it from opening. This just slides off the side. In the second photo you can see a tab on the right side extending beyond the side of the card. This is where I made my mistake and caused the card to be a 5.5 x 7. I love the look though and decided that it would be a hand delivered card so it was OK.
A word of warning....................these are addicting! You stop....think your finished.....walk away...come back and you start adding little doodads here and there. LOL
I made card kits for my group which met up last night. Each kit had a different combination of papers. All embellishments were the same but not all used them. Here are a few of the ones made last night. First picture is of them open and then what they look like closed. First up mine.
And now here are two more
and 2 more
Going to go but some New Graphic 45 papers and build one with more of a theme. Hmmmmmm wonder what that will look like??
Til next time
