Ancestral Gate Fold Card

This gate fold card was really quick and easy and used papers and embellishments from our Ancestral Collection. For the base of the card I used our 12x12 Metallic Cover cardstock in Jade, but you could use any coordinating cardstock color for the base.  The center flower was created by layering a fabric flower with paper punched flowers, topped off with a pearlized sticker brad. It is also finished off with mini gems in the upper left corner and mini pearls and a rub-on from the Ancestral Collection embellishments.
Materials used:
 12x12 Metallic Cover Cardstock in Jade, 12x12 Ancestral Teal Brocade.
12x12 Ancestral Past to Present, 12x12 Ancestral Bird Brocade, 12x12 Ancestral Columns
Ancestral Mini Jewels, Ancestral Pearlized Brads, Ancestral Rub-Ons with Pearls

Hope you enjoy trying out this project!

1974 Ancestral Page

I love Vanessa's Ancestral Collection! I used the papers, ribbons, mini jewels, adhesive brads and rub-ons to create this 8" x 8" page that features a picture of me and my grandfather that was taken when I was little. To write out "1974", first I found a large, chunky font that would be easy to cut out. I then flipped it on my computer, and printed it on the back of the Pocket Watch Brocade paper. Then I simply cut the numbers out and glued them down. To create the flowers, I used flower punches in several different sizes and shapes and then placed a mini jewel or adhesive brad in the center. This page was pretty quick and easy to make -- it only took about 20 minutes!
