Red and Black Gatefold***************JR#049


Recently  I saw a gatefold card that caught my eye ( )and wanted to make one.   I thought it would work well for this weeks JustRite 049  Direct to Rubber technique challenge.  And then I "discovered"  had  a  gatefold card challenge this week too.

Stamps:  from Just Rite's You Inspire Me and Just a Note sets
Spellbinders: Octogons and Tags
Flowers: Bazzill Bling Blossoms
Ribbon: May Arts
Other: Swarovski Crystals, Brads, and Luna Lights Paint and shiny red paper from Rubber Necker, Decorative Scissors, Memento Ink, Tombow Markers, and paper (unknown) from my stash, and of course tape and glue.
    The direct to rubber technique was fun to try.  Each stamp was hand colored using markers, memento dew drops, or in the case of the silver butterflies (on the bookmark/tag) my little finger!  A bookmark/tag seemed to be an appropriate "gift" to tuck in the pocket and I added a blank Spellbinder tag so the giver could easily sign the card.  I admit, this card too awhile to make, but the day was kind of gloomy; damp and cool so what could be more fun that creating a card?
