Rice Paper Gate Fold Card

Hi there crafters, I hope all is well with you all.

It's a very simple little gate card today and using 2 sheets of the Imagination Crafts Rice papers which are very delicate and give a card that lovely shabby chic look.

So I took a piece of A4 card and folded to make a gate card then cut the card down to 7.5 inches.

I decided to use No 153 and cover each side of the front of the card using Magi-bond and a small flat paint brush.

Next I wanted to decorated the inside of the card and used No 174 and using water and paint brush drew around so as to create a frayed edge for all three surfaces.  I also distressed all the inside edges using Rangers Antique Linen.

Next came a piece of square cut card to place in the centre for a written sentiment of your choice.  I used a deckle edge cutter for this to soften the edges.  Then cut a little butterfly from No 153 and glued it to a piece of white card before cutting it out and placing in the corner of the square card.

I also cut out the two large butters from the second sheet of 153 and left them as is as I thought they would look very delicate on the front of the card.  I gave them a little shaping (oops wonky wing :o)

Then decoupaged them onto the front of the card.  I decided to stick the larger mustard coloured butterfly down with 3D foam pads as it was quite large and kept flapping about.

The final flourish was to add some ribbon to tie the card together.  I had a nice piece of cream organza ribbon that I attached to the back of the card then tied a bow at the front to keep the gate card closed.

Here it is again.

A very quick and easy card today, but hope you like the Rice Papers as much as I do.
Thank you for dropping by the blog again today.
Hope to see you at the class later.
Love Jan -x-
