High Hopes #134


Time for a new challenge over at High Hopes ... this week it's to make a
Gate fold card
I'm normally very boring with my paper crafting, so this was a new challenge for me!  I went for the standard type, but if you're feeling a bit more adventurous than me, Michelle did a fab tutorial last week on how to make a scenic gate fold card.

I've used some of the cute penguins from the Penguin Friends collection ... Leapin Lewis and Penguin Friends.  Coloured with copics and promarkers, and some flowersoft added to Lewis' hat and boots.

You wouldn't believe how long it took me to tie a ribbon round the right hand side panel... ages and ages of faffing about.  What ribbon I hear you say?  Well after all that I came across my Memory Box snowflake die and decided to use that instead LOL

Other challenges...
Pile it on #21 - put a bird on it
Crafty Catz - a fancy fold or two
Card Makin Mamas CMM70 - rubber stamps
Natalie and Amy's challenge #9 - things with wings
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas extra - anything Christmas
Sparkles Christmas challenge #28 - favourite festive colours (I like the traditional red, white and blue combo)
