Don't Be Square at Totally Gorjuss


I'm back to tell you about the new challenge at Totally Gorjuss which this week is Don't Be Square and we are sponsored by Crafters Companion. This card was for an order where the customer want a 007 inspired card. I have seen a few of these type of cards on the internet but struggled to find a template so I made one out of paper first so I could get the dimensions right.


Here's a picture of the inside so you can see the waistcoat, I used brads on this instead of more buttons. The bow tie is made from a piece of ribbon. and if you look carefully you can see I used velcro to hold the suit jacket closed.


I added some white paper to the back to give a space to write on.

Just a quick heads up for you all Sarah at S J Crafts is offering Free Postage on all orders over £15 this weekend ( from 10am Saturday 10th May 2014 to 10am Monday 12th May 2014) head over to the shop and have a look and see what goodies she has for you.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Allsorts Challenge - Fancy Folds
Open Minded Crafting - Use Some Ribbon
A Creative Romance - One for The Boys
Splendiferous Creations - Bloggers Challenges - Buttons And Bows
Crafty Catz Challenge - Black & White & one othercolour
