Oriental Red and Black Gate Fold Birthday Card

December 10th, 2010

This is another card which was featured on Create and Craft shopping channel. I love using red and black as a colour theme for oriental cards. it looks so sophisticated. I have sent similar designs to my family for birthdays and they loved the cards.

Red and black gate fold oriental card

I have used oriental red printed paper on both side of the gate fold and added a strip of red satin ribbon top and bottom of both sides of the gate fold. The gorgeous red chinese frogs works well on a gate fold card. It always reminds me of the way you fasten the traditional chinese dresses.

I have mounted the frog fastenings onto black and gold card to bring them out from the red backing paper. I have stuck the frog fastening down with some silicone glue.
