Gatefold Numbers MashUp!



Wooohooo!  I am so excited to share with you today that I have been invited to be a guest designer with The Friday Mashup! for the month of September.  I have thoroughly enjoyed doing these challenges each week since I found the blog - I always look forward to see what things have been chosen to Mash together.  I am so absolutely honored to be working with these wonderfully talented ladies!  I know I'm going to have a blast!  So, for this week the Mash Up is -


  1. Create a card that uses a "Gatefold" .
  2. or Create a card that uses "Numbers"(stamped, die cut, chip board etc)
  3. or "Mash it Up!" and create a "Gatefold Card using Numbers"!

For my creation - I've used Calypso Coral and Pool Party with the "Elizabeth" stamp.  I'm a bit sad that the colour looks so dark on the one side of the photo - it's really a soft looking card in real life.  I used some of my billions of chipboard for the numbers.  At first I inked them with white craft ink - but then sponged some pool party on top.

Upon seeing this card, my daughter remarked that it couldn't be her card even though it's pretty.  She may end up using it for a friend since they'll all be turning 21 this coming year.

Be sure to go on over to the Friday Mashup and check out the wonderful creations the Design Team has come up with.  And remember to use FM22 when posting to a public gallery.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a fantastic Labour Day Weekend!

Glad to have you joining us as a GD Joan!

This is a lovely card. The more I see people use Pool Party the more I start to like it. I might have to break that color out and give it a chance!
