Butterfly gatefold

I seem to have been fiddling about with this card for days, but I think it is finished now.  The main card is cut from centura pearl and consists of 2 pieces of card 10 x 5 glued together to make a gatefold,  I have cut the mauve mats from some pearlised 120 gsm paper which cut really well.  The inner mat has a ribbon trim which gives it a bit of texture.- on reflection I should have embossed the mauve mat behind the central mat which would have given it more texture.  A few beads finish it off.  I haven't finished with this idea yet, but I shall post the template on uks once I have tidied up my working file.

Fancy edged ribbon card

This is a very simply designed card with ribbon slots top and bottom.  Again the central mats are a simple design, decorated with beads.  I have arranged some mulberry flowers in the centre to give it some interest and make it a bit more pleasing to the eye!  If any one would like the studio template I will post it on the UKS site.
