Hi gals, today's Just Us Girls technique challenge is to make a gate fold card. If you've never done one before there are several tutorials to help you. Beate Johns has this tutorial for you or you might want to check out Gina K's video on StampTV how to make a Gate Fold card --- With a Twist. (There are two elements on the card - one on each "flap" of the card)
My card follows the StampTV tutorial to make the card "with a twist" so I made a card for my dear friend for Thanksgiving. I think he and his wife will like it :-)
I used some GinaK Pumpkin Spice card stock as my base then inked up Theresa Momber's Autumn Beauty stamp set. I colored the images with copics - and cut a slit in the wagon so I could slide the pumpkins "into" the wagon.
The DP is from Autumn Abundance (PTI) - the plaid makes such a perfect masculine base! I also used it to decorate the inside as well. The sentiment on the inside comes from Gina K's So Grateful set.
And now - a special little treat --- Dana has a birthday this week so I want to shout out to her HAPPY BIRTHDAY girlie! Hope it's one of your best ever. I had already made my Gate Fold card when I realized it was Dana's BD so my card is not a BD card :-( but the birthday wishes are there all the same - BTW I am putting a real BD card in the mail to you Dana - be on the lookout!
Please stop by Dana's blog and wish her a happy birthday then pop over to the rest of the team (sidebar ->) and check out their creations as well. We are also delighted to have a new Featured Designer for November - the very talented Cheryl Rowley - leave her a little love as well if you can.
Hugs n Smiles!
