Parchment Butterfly Gatefold card
This was the project in our latest lesson at The Art of Craft which is the venue for all our lessons and workshops. Our tutor Marilyn Pybus, who is associated with The Art of Craft as their parchment teacher , designed the card using a template for the outline shape. The plan of the card took some thinking about as it is drawn and embossed as one piece and then cut in half to enable the butterfly wings to be folded back on the front of the card. This involved embossing the frame of the card on one side and the wings on the other. Can be a little confusing.
Whilst mentioning The Art of Craft it gives me the opportunity to tell you that they have very kindly agreed to be our sponsor at CD Sunday for March.
This will be next Sunday - 6th - and they are giving a very generous prize of a £20.00 Voucher. So we are hoping for lots of entries and are looking forward - as always- to many blog visits.
