Gatefold Card – Waterfall With Many Layers

Well bit late in posting today as I have been playing – sometimes it`s just nice to do a project with nothing set of what I need to use or do – don`t get me wrong I love that side too but last night I thought i`ll do nothing and watch TV but then I couldn`t just needed to play – here`s the results

The image is matted onto a damask background –one of Glenda’s stamps and set onto some tapestry card & then I have used the end feathers of a Peacock feather , the bits that normally get thrown away and placed  paper flowers  over the base of the feathers – Then tassels finish the front off


The many papers inside are all A4 except the last one with is just 2 joined , they are a mixture of the co-ordinating background papers , some stamped with a damask stamp and others are acetate ones with a scalloped edge


It all opens to see the waterfall card in the centre – I know a bit over the top card – but one made with love and for someone special


I had been reading the World of Cards book and as I had made a waterfall card like the centre last May I had forgotten all about the colours etc – so I thought it was a great base for an idea – I had been watching a template show on C&C where a gatefold card had been made with many layer opening till you got to the centre piece

This card was lovely although it didn`t close to well because of all the card inside so with the waterfall card in mind I made the outside card with a 2cm depth so it would take the waterfall and paper flowers in the centre – I then worked backwards layering the card up as I went – some with scalloped edges , some with stamped papers

I was thrilled with the results and the fact Mum knocked on the door just as I finished so she got to be the first to see it in the flesh

I am also very pleased as this image is from the Fashion Boutique Cd , I found the postcard / photo as a local car boot sale from a lady selling antique postcards and cigarette cards , and it was at the time when people were asking about a cd from this era so I got it and sent it to Joanna – so having here in cd form &  being able to use it is just wonderful

Thanks for looking in – Suzanne
