This card is created for the "anything-goes" challenge at Joan's Gardens, where we are to create a card for someone special. Mine is for a special lady.
I made this one beginning with two-sided textured decorator paper by K&Company, with the card design inspired by the gate-fold card shared on pp 18 and 19 in this month's Papers and Pixels Magazine--techniques by Meg Loven in a gate-fold buckle card. I didn't catch the front with a banner as she did, rather a riveted scalloped punch sentiment by SU inked in Kaleidaacolor Cappuccino Delight ink. The flowers are from various sources, but the main mulberry paper flower came from Wild Orchid Crafts and others are from I Am Roses . The design is heavily spritzed with gold Tsukinko Shimmer. The flowers lie on top of part of the Heartfelt Creations Bella Rose leaves stamp and die-set. The green flourish and corner decoration are die cut from Victorian Romance Flourish (DL151) by Cheery Lynn Designs sold at Joan's Gardens.
