Sorry it took me longer than I said to post these. Unfortunately I only have 1 spot in the house where there is enough light to take photos and it wasn’t light enough till today! This is the invitation I made for Harrison’s upcoming Christening. Bear in mind I only made 12 of these!
This is a gate fold card that started as a piece of A4 Night of Navy cardstock. I scored at 2-1/16″ in from each of the long sides. I then cut it in half (through the short side) to give me a A5 card. There is a tiny overlap at the middle but that was as accurate as I could get it as this silly trimmer only has imperial increments.
I ran a piece of W/White cardstock through my Cuttlebug using the Textile plate and then dragged the Night of Navy classic pad over the top to give it a slightly ‘shabby chic’ look. I then trimmed them down and layered onto a piece of Going Grey cardstock. I really like this colour – at first glance it looks silver! I then layered onto each side of the panels. I then made a slit along the fold line and threaded some silver organdy ribbon through and tied it in a bow to keep it closed.
I printed all the invitation details onto SU Vellum Cardstock using MS Publisher 2003, printing 4 copies on the one page. They ended up being nice & evenly spaced and made it a snap to trim them up. (They are trimmed to a little under A6 size). The vellum is layered onto a piece of el’ cheapo’ white card, attached using silver star brads. The white & vellum was then layered onto a piece of Going Grey (A6 size) and then attached to the base of the card.
I’ve got to go out now so I’ll post the Thank You card later.
