Good morning everyone! If you're in the UK I hope you're enjoying this holiday Monday. As it's Monday that means I'm here with my GDT post for La-La Land Crafts.
This week our theme is 'Fun Folds' and originally I was going to go with my old favourite the 'Magic' card, but I thought I'd challenge myself to something a little different and was toying with the idea of a Tri Shutter and a couple of others, but of course by the time I got around to making it, my teamies had those covered. So I settled on a Gatefold Joyfold card, which as the name suggests is a mix of a gatefold and a joyfold card.
I used the following La-La Land Crafts products for my card.
This was a pretty difficult project to photograph so I took lots lol!
This is what the front of the card looks like. I coloured Marci with Derwent Inktense pencils and also a couple of their watercolour pencils for her skin and popped her up on some foam.
Skin:1800,& watercolour: 17, 18
Outfit:0520, 0530, 0600, 1230, 1300, 2100, 2120
Hair: 1710, 1720, 1900, 0520, 0530
I used some flowers and seam binding from The Ribbon Girls. The bling is Prima Mini Swirls.
All the gorgeous papers used are from the same 6 x 6 pad by Authentique, this one is called Flourish, love the bright colours and the fact that there are solid papers to match the patterns. I also used some Bazill in Chablis
All the papers have been edged with DI in Pumice Stone and hand stitched with coloured top stitch thread...this took me soooo long lol.
Finally here's a side view of the layers when the card is closed.
Do pop over to the blog to see the rest of Team Monday's makes, there's a ton of inspiration to be found there, and lots of different types of folded card, you're bound to find something you like.
Well that's all from me today, I'm back to work tomorrow, but I'll be here with my scheduled post for Dies to Die for.
I'm entering the following challenges:
Come and Get It-Lots of Layers
As I'm off to my parents at the end of this week and won't have access to my craft room, I won't have a Monday (or Tuesday) post for you next week, but keep your eye out for some Candy from me. I will be taking my colouring pencils though as they're nice and portable, and some stamped images to colour up, so I'll have plenty to turn into cards when I return, and since I'm not crafting and blogging for a few days, that gives me plenty of time to catch up on all your blogs and Facebook shares as I'll be taking my iPad with me
See you tomorrow :) xx
