Hi Everyone,

It's What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, I have my craft room back (BHS* found a lovely place of his own) and a free morning ... guess what I'm going to be doing?! WooHOOO!! Cutting and sticking time :o)

We are going to a Ruby Wedding Anniversary party on Saturday, so I want to make a special card. After a good old trawl through YT, I was very taken with the idea of a "gatefold shutter card", so I've decided to have a go at that this morning. Here are some of the bits and bobs I plan to use ...

It looks really simple yet impressive in the YT tutorials - so watch this space ...

Ok, I'm off to Julia's Stamping Ground to link up and see what everyone else is up to this week. If you haven't been before, you should check it out - just have a nosey at other people's workdesks or join us and link up with a picture of your own creative space. Just grab a cuppa and I'll see you there :o)

Thanks for visiting today, see you again soon

ps For those who asked last time I mentioned "BHS" - it stands for "Big Hairy Son"!

Well, BHS has done the right thing!! Hope you're having a lovely morning at your desk. It would be the kiss of death for me, deciding what I was to do before I'd had a play!

A gatefold shutter card? I'm intrigued! Show us more next time! Have fun at the anniversary event. It's good that you got your craft room back, I bet you're happy about that! Have a lovely week! zsuzsa xx

Yes, I was one of those who asked who BHS was... Thanks for enlightening me.
I like gatefold shutter cards. I made some a few months back when there were 4 birthdays in one month, so I made four the same (well, almost) cards. Looking forward to seeing yours when it's done.
Have a good week and thanks for visiting already,

So happy you've got your room back!!! YAY! Can't wait to see said card. I'm USELESS at those fiddly sorts of things. Always admire others that can stick with them & create!!

I'm curious about your card! I do not know the technique you named.

Greetings, Sofie #51
