Gorgeous Glued Asymmetrical Closed Gate Invite: 60-Second Fold of the Week
This week's spotlight shines on an invitation that actually, well, shines. This gorgeous invitation for Mlife / MGM Resorts International was designed to promote a very special Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood concert. They used a Curious Cosmic paper from Mohawk that had a saturated matte metallic blue on one side — but they managed to create a format that brought the blue to both sides of the piece!
So, how'd they do it?
Trish will make one of her special homemade comps to give you the skinny on this heavy-hitting idea!
