Thanks guys!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by today and for your comments, I really appreciate them.

The cards I'm sharing with you today are a couple of the ones I created yesterday, but didn't get chance to photograph. Guys are always a challenge to design for so these took a bit of thought and indeed a browse around Pinterest for inspiration. I love that site! :)

It's been a long time since I've created gate fold cards and when I saw one, I knew that would be the style I'd use. I had so much fun with these and they didn't take long to design. It also felt great to get something done after this week!

All the panels on the front have been lifted with foam tape for dimension and you can just see the matching layers peeking through from the inside; those layers were added with super sticky tape. The punched stars were adhered with wet glue.
