Hi, I took 3 different shots of this card so you could see it inside and out. I found the yellow gate-fold card on clearance a couple years ago, it was an Anna Griffin wedding announcement set, truly pretty enough on it's own, the envelopes alone were worth the price I paid for it. I added some lace to the front of it and then glued down the floral cut out flaps. I don't think you can see it but I added some Stickles to the flowers too. I folded the floral flap and glued it down to the outside of the envelope since this card will be hand delivered, you can see the solid yellow inside of the envelope in the 2nd photo. I cut another piece of the gate-fold, mounted it to the left flap of the card front and punched the sides of it then added a sentiment and a place for a signature. The inside of the card has a beautiful Gecko Galz image mounted on to a piece of yellow cs which is then mounted on to a gorgeous white die cut from Bird's Cards, I added a sheet of blue cs to the background to make it all pop. And yes I did use my Perfect Layers Rulers to get the image cut square and to get the 1/8" yellow trim on it straight this time lol.
I just want to take a moment and thank Leanne Seed at Gecko Galz, I used the free image from her 2012 blog hop. She is always generously offering beautiful collage sheets through her blog hops, on her personal blog Fripperies and Butterflies and through the Yahoo Gecko Galz Papercrafting· Ephemera Emporium Crafting Challenges group. She offers so many fun challenges and plenty of chances to win free images too, I would love to see you join us there.
I also want to thank Bird from Birds Cards, she offers gorgeous die cuts in SVG and other formats free on her blog along with digital images and free how to instructions. She has a Forum now where you can ask questions, get to know other crafters, and she will even entertain the idea of suggestions, you are such a sweet person Bird.
Many thanks to both of these kind and generous ladies for sharing your talents with all of us.
Thanks for looking. ~Diane
