I hope you are having a fab week. I am sharing another You Tube tutorial today. This one is for a gatefold card and features paper piecing. If you have never tried paper piecing then this is the video for you. It is a fab technique that is great for using up pretty scraps of patterned paper. I think that smaller patterns work best.
Here is the card on the outside:
Here is the inside of the card which I have left blank ready to stamp the perfect greeting when the time comes for me to send this card.
I have decided to start giving measurements for my videos here on my blog as I think it helps to have them in one place rather than having to keep pausing and rewinding the video if you miss one!
Gatefold Card Dimensions
Brown Card Base: 8" x 11 1/2" scored at 2 7/8"
Green Card for front of Gatefold: 2 1/2" x 7 3/4" cut 2

This card can be made in any combinations of card colours using coordinating patterned papers and the stamps you have in your collection.
I used a Gorjuss stamp set from the Urban Rubber Stamp collection. Hope you find the tutorial useful and easy to follow.
I would really like to thank everyone that has signed up to follow me recently. It means a lot to me to have your support. If anyone wants me to send them the free tutorial for the Chrysanthemum (top of the right hand side bar) then don't forget to email me. My email is on my right hand side bar a bit further down.
This week I was really happy to see the results of one of my online workshops. The lovely Anne made my day when I saw the great results she had. What was even nicer was to see they were already full of her gorgeous tags! It makes all the hours sitting here talking to myself and putting the online videos and instructions together worth it when they work and such great results are achieved. I wanted to share the link to Anne's blog so you can see what a great job she did.
Have a great week and thank you for popping by x
