Man About Town Gatefold

This week sees the debut of another fantastic Kraftyhands CD. This one is called "Man About Town" and, as the name suggests, it's male orientated. The launch show is on Create and Craft this Wednesday 17th April at 12 noon with a second show at 3 pm.
There are two design sets on this CD, the fabulous Stepper Cards and the new Gatefold Cards. There are also some gorgeous vintage papers.

This is one of the Gatefold cards that I made. I just love the papers and colours in this set.
Everything you need to create a 6" Gatefold card, apart from the card base,  is contained on two pages including the backing papers, sentiments, embellishments and toppers. There are ten sets to choose from.
I made the Gatefold blank slightly larger than the 6" and edged it with Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks.
I have added a couple of chopped up die-cuts from Memory Box and Cheery Lynn as embellishments.
The artwork on the CD cover shows a few of the wonderful toppers and papers on the disc.
Don't forget to visit the Kraftyhands Webshop for your crafty needs. You can also view the gallery for more inspiration. We also have the Kraftyhands blog which is showcasing some of the cards made by the DT in readiness for the C&C shows this week.
