Margaret is hosting our challenge today, and the theme is Fancy Folds.

This particular challenge is for cards only.

Please remember our 15 total challenge rule!

This card is one of my favourite bases – it allows for much decoration, yet at the same time seems quite clean and simple!  And the insert allows room to write your own message, which is not being seen by casual viewers as it is on display.

I made a 6x 6 inch gatefold card base out of cream card, and in the centre inserted a “flap” made of the same card, which came down inside the gatefolds.

On the front of the card, I die cut a topper (tonic, I believe) and layered onto that with the inner die in cream.  Onto the topper, I stuck a heart, die cut in gold.  A few pearls finished off the front.

On the inside of the gatefold flaps, I stuck some art deco paper from my stash (possibly from a Debbie Moore cd) as a layer, and overlaid that layer with a die cut bride and groom (from Joanna Sheen).

Lastly, I decorated the flap with the same art deco paper, and in the centre added a die cut heart in cream, with the hearts paper pieced in gold, and small toppers with the bride and groom’s initials.  The final touch was to add the sentiment.
