Now for the blog challenge

I thought i`d make a card / gift for my first

Joanna Sheen blog challenge piece

It was 6 years ago since I started using Joanna`s cd`s to make a cracker for the family table

I sent Joanna a photo of the big cracker and after a few  e-mails I was asked if I would make some samples for a pending show, I was overjoyed as I knew nothing of the design team or about sample making and I am happy to say I have produced samples every month there after

I adore getting new products and seeing what everyone comes up with and I was delighted to be asked to join the new Joanna Sheen Blog Challenge – Thank you

So here is my first piece 

 a Gatefold Easel Card

complete with a draw with some Mulled Wine bags

It was inspired by a sample I made for the Enchanted Dreams show

click here for the piece and there is a worksheet on how to make the gatefold easel card – I will post how the base is made in due course

Often you don`t see friends  very much throughout the year and the idea was to bring a

bit of cheer to their family & they can make the mulled wine up for themselves


So all the images come from the

New `from the heart of the Garden ` cd

Which I have to say is my all time ever favourite cd

& i`m not just saying that, I adore it as i`m sure you will


Here some hitch fasteners have been added to the gatefold card to

add a feature to the front of the design

The easel part of the card is just raised up & tucked behind the topper

& then the gatefold sides are opened out to show the decoupaged image

& then little sentiment boxes have been used to add to the top of the mulled bag – a little something for the person who is receiving it to enjoy

I hope you have enjoyed this first challenge piece as I really enjoyed making it

See you next month for another challenge

Thanks for stopping by & please subscribe to receive next month post as

& when it`s posted
