Pretty In Pink


     This card has been made for a special young lady on her special day. The items used are from Creative Expressions.

     Fold two sheets of the 8x8 inserts collection as shown in the photo. This is an idea I first saw several years ago, it's based on an origami fold you can watch here on You-tube.
     I used a piece of white card to make the hinge but I coloured the area that would be seen with an alcohol marker. I stuck some pink ribbon into the gap on the sides before sticking the sides down so the card can be tied shut for presentation.
     Inside the card I have used white card coloured pink again to create the base for the die cut squares, both white squares are mounted on gold paper.
     The greeting square has been stamped and embossed with Bright Gold then coloured with Distress Ink Spun Sugar. There will be a photograph on the right hand panel before I give it to Em.
     The white panel that is on the insert paper is ideal for the decorative panel, using the small stamps in the Butterfly Montage Collection I stamped in Distress Inks Spun Sugar, Seedless Preserve and Brilliance Gold to create foliage that would poke out behind the die cut panel.
     The flowers and butterflies are stamped and embossed in clear, then fussy cut and glued on to the card, the flowers have a tiny gem in the middle to add sparkle.
     21 is die cut from the same gold paper used to back all of the square panels. This front panel has also been coloured with Spun Sugar then mounted on foam pads above the foliage.
