TMS#84





Hello and happy Tuesday! Tuesdays are fun because we have another fun challenge from Melissa at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog! Our sponsor this week is Digi's By Phooka and our challenge is to create a gatefold card. I don't think I have ever made one, so it was fun to try. With the help of my Scor-Pal, it was very easy....
I included 3 photos today. The top photo is the card all "wrapped up", the middle shows the gatefold, and the bottom shows the "pocket" I put inside to hold a gift card or some cash. I think it's fun that you get to "unwrap" the card, by untying the bow, to get to the gift inside.
I printed the digi on some DP, cut it out, colored her cheeks and then added glitter to the purse to accent it. The DP is pretty busy, so I just used a single flower diecut for embellishing; I added a punched circle and some glitter to the flower as well. (The flower die was a gift from my friend Larissa; there were 3 different sizes, I used the small and medium on this card. Thank you, my friend!) I love the cute face on the purse...check out the eyelashes!
