Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

It is a Gatefold Easel Card

Come and Get It Challenges this week has a "card with more than one fold" challenge. Bugaboo Stamps is the sponsor of this challenge so everyone who enters their card has a chance of winning 7 digi stamps from Bugaboo. 

I chose two of Bugaboo stamps for this Gate Fold Easel card; make it snappy - happy birthday and Dottie cake. I thought they were a good combination for the card and also went well this my birthday cupcake paper.  

The idea for the gatefold easel card came from a card I viewed on Pinterest and I found a tutorial on Impressions by Day's Blog with directions to make the card.

I coloured the images with my glitter pens and Copics, added ribbon and a Stampin Up sentiment. 

Come join is at Come and Get it Challenges this week.  Stuck for an inspiration for your card, check out the cards made by the other design team members.  Need an idea for a card with more than one fold, check out the at Split Coast Stampers website.
