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.

Downton Abbey - Gatefold Card!!

Morning. Thought it was time I joined in with all the Downton Abbey sneak peeks!! I have been a bit of a fan of the series and am looking forward to the start of the last one, this Sunday. Sara will be on Create and Craft at 8am and 1pm on Monday, as well as 9am and 3pm on Tuesday. Fiona will then be on at 2pm on Wednesday and 5pm on Friday.
I made this gatefold style card by first printing the papers from CD1 direct onto Sheena Stamping card - to make a piece of double sided card. I then scored landscape at 16cm and 24cm for the folds. To make the curves, I just drew round the inside edge of a roll of tape.

The images are from one of the Card Companions on CD 1 and all the embellishments are from the CD - printed onto Printable Light Card.
The gorgeous bow at the top is cut using the Downton Abbey Ribbon Brooch die. 
I used some glossy accents on the sentiment and on the cameos to add a little dimension, and finished off with some co-ordinating flat backed pearls.

Keep an eye out for more sneak peeks from the team, and I'll be back soon with more myself.
