CAS Wreath

Get your chance of an  Elf here
 Candy is still running in the post above.
Ends 31st October.

Fortnight is up again  and it's time
for the Christmas club Girls
to show our latest cards.
The theme was set by Karen and is
CAS Wreath.

I had a quick look through my old stash
of used card fronts and actually found
6 Wreaths but this was the most CAS one.
This is how it started out .

I decided to make a Gate fold card and this is the outside
kept closed with a belly band.
I used Anita's gold stickers  Merry Christmas 
to decorate. you will see why inside.
A snippet of  dotty ribbon that was still on my desk
was just enough to go round the band.

I used cherry red card stock for the base of the card
and layered up with Gold mirror card and green card.

Card opening up.

Card fully opened.
I frugally  trimmed the card down into three sections
and even had a small piece over to decorate the band with.

  7. Hello there, fabulous card. I love your gatefold design and your remake is brilliant, Kate x

  8. Brilliant card, mmmm, not done a gate fold for ages - must put that on my to do list.

    Your room makeover sounds perfect. I'd love a table in the middle but the room isn't big enough. The table will be at one end in front of the window so hopefully will be a brighter workspace than where the little desk is facing a wall at the mo'.
    Looking forward to seeing your finished room.
