Imagine That! Progressive Challenge

I am a bit late this month with the Imagine That! DOTM Challenge
but have just managed to get something made with the digi - free because I entered last month!!

This week I have been making gate fold cards - in fact this sort of fold was one of the first I used for the Imagine That! Progressive Challenge - back in March 2013!

Taking a strip of card from a 12 by 12 I scored and folded at 2in, 4in, 8in and 10in.

I then matted each section with DP paper from my stash - cut into rectangles with corners rounded and edge distressed with TH Stormy Sky.

I printed the image pre-coloured, cut it out with a nesting die and also distressed this with Stormy Sky.
I did the same with the sentiments.

I then assembled as follows, placing some ribbon under the image:

Tied up it look like this:

and standing - like this:

I will link this to  Imagine That! DOTM Challenge
and look forward to the March image!
I will also link it to Through the Craft Room Door

Kris from Imagine that! very kindly gave me another freebie and
I chose a second set from the Valentine range - Impossible hearts

Continuing with my current blue theme I made a little ATC:

I printed the image (small) twice and coloured them with Spectrum Noir Blues.
I trimmed the first to size and distressed the edges with TH Stormy Sky, then attached it to the base - a scrap of blue card..
I used a craft knife to cut out the second pair of hearts and attached them with dimensionals.
I also added You and Me as shown

I will link this to Imagine That! Use any Digi Challenge

Happy Crafting!!

  3. Wow Susan. Your cards turned out beautiful. I especially love your gatefold card. I'm envious because I can't seem to find much time to create uniquely shaped cards. I've only managed a few over two years. Love the beautiful paper you found in your stash. It really compliments the image.

    Thanks so much for entering your card into the stamp of the month challenge over at Imagine That! Digis by Kris. Good luck in the draw.
