The Tale of Tom Kitten

Since becoming a grandmother, one of my most often used CDs is "The Tales of Beatrix Potter" from Crafters Companion. my CD is only a mini taster version, a Create and Craft members freebie from a few years ago, yet there is enough on it to keep me crafting for many years!

Today I chose a decoupage, backing paper and border from The Tale of Tom Kitten and combined it with some green gingham paper, to make a double easel card. This is another example of the extra quick and easy fancy folds that Debbie Moore demonstrated at Farnborough last year  along with the one I used yesterday.

I am sharing this with

CD Sunday - Once Upon a Time
Allsorts Challenge - Gingham Style

Wonderful card Jane. I think I still have all the books somewhere up in the loft. I admire your wonderful folds. I wouldn't know where to start. Straight easels and 6 x 6 scalloped squares are my shaped cards. Thank you for joining in with us.
