This is a gatefold card that I created using Spellbinder's Standard Circles on kraft paper. Jennifer McGuire had a wonderful video this week featuring gatefold cards so I used her tutorial. I used Beccy's Christmas Goose for the image. The sentiment is from Beccy's Grumpy Goose digital stamp set. The designer paper is from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles.
The bellyband that I made has the sentiment and then to add some color I added two arrows colored with American Craft markers. I'm not totally happy with this one. The original design had a stamped from, using a background stamp. When I finished you could see the design so I took it out of my MISTI. But as it dried the pattern became lighter and lighter until you could hardly see it at all. So I moved to plan B and used the paper. Not what I envisioned but I guess it works.
I am entering these challenges:
- Beccy's Month of Holiday Cards: Day 8 the letter G (gatefold and goose)
- Crafty Sentiments Designs: anything goes
- QKR Stampede: anything goes
- 2 Crafty Critter Crazies: use a critter
- Incy Wincy challenge: animals
That's it for me tonight. Almost bedtime but I should go see if I can get dinner started for tomorrow night. If the twins see you in the kitchen they think it's time to eat so I try to minimize my time in the kitchen when they are here. The good news is they love fruits and veggies so it's easy to give them a snack. Have a super weekend.
