Gate Fold Belated Birthday


I felt like crafting today and enjoyed making this Gate-fold card as a belated birthday offering for my DD. I'm glad she knows I love her whether she receives her cards on time or not! We did speak on the phone on her actual birthday (yesterday) so I can't be that bad.

This card is also being submitted to Tan at Scrap N Craft With T as Project 2 of my Guest Design Team commitment. Most of the materials used were purchased or given to me from Tan's online shop - thank you, Tan! I had never tried shrinky dinks before. They are a lot of fun to use.

If you would like to see how I made this card, go to my PaperCraftCentral site to this page.

Materials List:

Royal blue cardstock - I made the base card with it
Basic GreyMortifica - Ochre Pattern
'Carte Postale' stamp set from Stampin' Up!
Shrinky Dinks almond
Blue & orange brads
Ribbon
Serendipity Elevation sticker (I coloured it a deeper blue)
Versacolor inks in cocoa and black
Black Stazon
Gold gel pen, black fine tipped felt pen
Gold cord

Creative Memories Vellum
Corner punch from Creative Memories
