Art Deco Wedding

You know when a "great" card design idea pops into your head out of the blue and you can't wait to put it together and then when you do it's either not that great at all and ends up in the bin,( no! haven't had that happen? I have quite a few times LOL!) or a complete triumph, well today's card is one of those, (obviously a triumph or I wouldn't be sharing it hehe!)

I had the idea to make a bow fronted card using one of my dies to make panels at each side so that you could see into the card, I also have a thing about cards fitting into envelopes so decided to add the concertina folds at each end of the front so that you can press it flat for posting, but it pops open once out of the envelope.



Art Deco Wedding CD rom - Debbi Moore Designs
Memory Box - Lucienne Tile
Lifestyle Nesting Ovals
Pearls - Meiflower

I have to say that it looks so much better in real life, the photo's really don't do it justice, and it is one of my all time favourites. My daughter has already claimed it for her friends wedding later in the year.

I am entering my card into the following challenges -

Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Must Be Square #25 Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesdays  - #161 Anything Goes
Through The Craft Room Door - Always Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown - #184 AnythingGoes
Love to Create  - Anything Goes
Make it Monday  - Always Anything Goes

Thanks for dropping in,
hugs,
