Open Window Gatefold Card.


Oops! Thursday came and went with no post! Sorry about that. My craft rooom had become SUCH a mess that I'd actually moved into the exercise room as well and when I ceased to be able to walk in EITHER room I decided I MUST stop and get organized. Besides, I need to start packing for our slumber Party SWARM over the weekend. Can't wait! Here's a card I did for Custom Crops using my Nesties and Cuttlebug. The article explaining the open gatefold technique is HERE. I used my nested maple leaves and the Cuttlebug maple leaf combo and a number of embossing folders to give them texture. I soooo love Fall!

  10. Donna, this is great! It looks like our country road does right now, with leaves of all kinds and colors. The gate fold is like looking through the trees in our woods as they lose their leaves and reveal the deeper secrets of the forest.

    Your creations always spark vivid images and imagination!

    Hugs,
