This blog was created to act as a record of the cards and other projects that I have made. It is for both my own reference and to help inspire anyone who wants to take a look.

I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment so that I know what you think of my projects and that you've been to visit!

Anyone can comment, even those who don't have a blog. (Just look for the word 'Comments' under the three little pictures at the end of each post). Readers without a blog can add an anonymous comment, but please leave your name (and docrafts username if applicable) so I know who you are!

Red, Black and Gold Car Gatefold

This is the card I made for my cousin's husband who's a car mechanic, hence the subject of the card. At the time, I didn't have a suitable stamp so raided my peel-offs for the image.

I am entering this card into this week's Charisma Cardz blog challenge, which has a theme of Going Round In Circles.

Firstly, the topper for the card was created. A gold Anita's car peel-off was adhered to black paper and cut out. This was then adhered using 3D foam pads to a white circle of card, a larger red circle and a gold mirror card scalloped circle, all cut out using Nestabilities dies.

A gatefold card was created from white card and panels were created for the front from gold mirror card and red patterned paper from the HOTP Ultimate Floral Cardmaker's Creative Pack.

Circular 3D foam pads were added to the corners of the panels and covered with marbled black transfer foil. The sentiment was added to the image panel using red Doodlebug Simply Sweet rub-on lettering, and the panel attached across the opening of the card.
