I've been experimenting with a few different card folds recently, and decided a make a type of gate-fold card...this one has a double fold in the front. I started with a piece of card measuring 12 inches by 5 inches, then scored the card at 2, 4, 8 and 10 inches...once folded it measures 4x5 inches.
Here's a view of the card 'open':
The image I used is 'Rainin' Daisies' by Penny Black, coloured with watercolour pencils, and then cut out using my lacey circles Nesties (available here at the Secret Crafter). I used three different Cuttlebug folders for the embossing: 'Victoria'; 'D'Vine Swirls'; and 'Floral Fantasy' (available here at the Secret Crafter). I cut the flowers using a die from the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet, and then added some adhesive pearls (available here at the Secret Crafter) to their centres.
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
- Truly Scrumptious - Swirls & Pearls
- Stampavie & More - Monochrome
- Stampin' for the Weekend - Monochrome
- Delightful - Animals
- Creative Cottage - Fabulous Florals
