Lazy Day Kaylee Gatefold Card
Some Odd Girl had an awesome Facebook Fun Day yesterday - there were tutorials, flash sale coupon codes, and even a freebie! If you weren't there, don't miss the next one! Anyways, they had two challenges, using fabric and making a gatefold card, so I rolled both into one! I am all about killing two birds with one stone.
It was the first time I tried making a gatefold card - I don't have any thin dies so I had to use my Fiskars ShapeXpress to cut the window. I didn't trust it to do multiple layers at once so I kept the card pretty simple, without additional papers, etc. I was able to just barely fit an embossing folder between the folds to get the Happy Birthday Embossing on the front.
I also tried paper piecing for the first time and I really like how the dress turned out. This card was given at a friend's birthday party last night, so I didn't have time for extra embellishments or to try printing on the fabric like Annette's tutorial suggested. I was at least going to stamp a sentiment on the fabric, but in the end found there wasn't room. So it's CAS (Clean And Simple) again today for me. :) Hope you like it!
