Gate fold card 2

Hey there!

Salam!

My life is on a full force roller coaster, as if it didn’t have enough adventures already! I spent the last night trying to fit in all our belongings in all the suitcases and cartons I could find at home, while my hubby was throwing up all around the place. Poor soul is severely under the weather.. then we rushed to the E.R and after an hour or so of check ups and medicines, we came back home. I hope he gets better soon. 😦

So, coming back to the crafty life of mine… this card is from my previous makes, and the status of this card is – SOLD. 🙂

I love my DCWV scrap book paper and this floral series is one of my favorites. So, I made another gate fold card, which turned out surprisingly pretty.

Here is how it looks 🙂 .. I hope you like it.

So, I added handmade paper flowers that I punched out. Added sequins for the center of the flowers. A touch of glitter is a must … hehehe, and the yellow ribbon to hold the flaps in place was the finishing touch. 🙂

What do you think?

I’ll be back with a few more intresting makes… so stay tuned.

Till then,

Have an awesome day!

Mother’s day card..

Salam y’all!

Here is another card that I have to show you today. It is one of the easiest yet very elegant folds, the gate-fold.

I enjoyed making this one because it was easy and quick to make and it can accomodate loads and loads of variations. 🙂

I made this particular card for mother’s day. It is spring time too so combined the two and came up with this beauty!

Card in a box… :)

Hey there!

Salam!

As promised, I am back with another fun creation. Last year I did simple fold cards, but this time I wanted some oomph factor to the cards I made.

One thing that I just can’t get the hang of are the measurements…. like 3 3/4 , 5 1/8 , 7 7/8…! I like things to be a bit easier, so I go with halves and quarters… that’s easy right?

This is exactly what I did with this card of mine… the flaps are 2.5″ x 5″. Sooooo easy!

So, the card folds flat, which makes it easier to mail. It has plenty of writing space, and is just plain awesome!

I will be putting up a tutorial for this one… pretty soon.. 🙂

Till then,

Have a lovely day !
