Magical Gatefold

Hi all,

My first post for today is a gatefold card. Over at There's Magic In The Air they decided to give away a freebie digital stamp called "Beached Boat" and then asked you to incorporate the image into a gatefold card.

Firstly I made the gatefold card from a piece of hessian coloured card and then using some slightly different coloured card put two panels on each of the "gates". I then used a stamp called "bullrushes" from Barbara at Clarity Stamp to add some interest to the bottom of the card and a "flock of birds" also from Barbara at Clarity to give a bit of definition at the top of the card and used a Happy Birthday sentiment, yes another one of Barbara's for the top left. I used two Crab charms as closers for the card. On the inside I used a slightly coloured paper as an insert and used a fish stamp on the back of the image and also at the bottom of the insert. And yes, you guessed it folks - it's one of Barbara's stamps!

I am quite pleased with the finished card as I don't make many gatefold cards and have only recently found Digital Stamps.
Hope you like it and comments, as always are greatly appreciated.

  5. I love this card - its simplicity makes it so restful you could almost imagine being there beside the boat. Keep on carding Dawn
