About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Kimono Gatefold!!

Morning!! It's time - Sara is on Create and Craft right now with the launch of the fabulous Crafter's Companion Kimono range!!
This is a gatefold card made from a complete sheet of A4 Matt Black card and one of the Card Companions from the CD. I used a bow and 'epoxy' circle, along with a few pearls for decoration.

I decorated the inside too, using one of the very striking patterned papers, more of the 'epoxy' circles and one of the smaller toppers from the Card Companion sheet. I stamped the sentiment from the Lotus Flower stamp plate. To fasten the card, I attached a piece of ribbon underneath the topper on the front of the card, and another to the back of the card. 

I hope you enjoy the show with Sara!! I'll be back tomorrow with another Kimono sample.

Take care,
Cxxxx

  2. I have just watched the demos on C&C and am waiting for the next round! It is a superb set. The card you have made is just stunning and looks quite complicated.

    1. Thank Deb. It's really not that complicated. I folded an A4 piece of card to make the gatefold, then cut it down to make a squarish card. The topper is then mounted on card with the ribbon sandwiched in - and then stuck to the left hand part of the front. The other piece of ribbon is stuck to the back of the card and covered with a mat. The rest is just decoration!! Cxx
