Happy WOYWW crafters! Many thanks for all your comments, so inspiring to share eachothers creations :) This week I have been working on my first gate-fold card for a special person's birthday...
As you can see, my furry friend Tigger has been joining in and keeping my seat warm! I'm very lucky to have all this space to craft in. It's a far cry from where I first started making cards! Back then we were living in a v small flat and my other half would bring in the tiny fold away wooden slatted garden table and set it up in the lounge temporarily. It's such a joy to not have to pack everything away now. I never imagined that I would be able to devote a whole room to work in and spread out all my stuff! My ever-growing collection!!
Here is the outside, I embossed the panels using 'Without a Lock' Couture Creations folder. I inked over the panels using a walnut stain. The lock is from Tando Creative locks and latches set.
Inside I glued 2 sections of Kanban Anchor Natural background card to the sides and inked up the inside card using the walnut stain. I also walnut stained the tag and attached it using a large glitter brad. I ran over the hemp string with the walnut ink and threaded a key from the Tando Creative range. As with the lock, I triple heat embossed using clear powder having inked them in walnut and aged mahogany. The sentiment is from a booklet of travel quotes that I came across in a wool shop in Eastbourne. I really enjoyed making this card :)
