Crafter’s Companion 2022 Advent Calendar door 14 fold back gatefold card

Updated: Jan 13, 2023

For door 14 I decided to break put the texture paste. It’s a great way to add shine to the contents of the door. We also used the reverse for what is in the door to make the gatefold panels mirror image. I also used a black pen to outline part of the panel. I hope you enjoy all the different techniques used in the card.
