Thought I'd try a different fold for a card (and a different occasion!) and decided to try a gate fold. This is A5 size and folded from A4 with a scoring board. I used papers with baby related words for the outside & paper with faint images on them (from The Works) on the inside. I covered both fronts with the script paper and the back with the other paper, both matted onto the relevant coloured cardstock. I cut a 6 1/2" scalloped frame and a smaller panel to fit inside it. I embossed this panel and adhered a small strip of punched paper to the bottom of it. I added ribbon, a bow & pearls. I cut a scalloped oval with the word 'BABY' cut out of it from glitter card. I backed this with a scrap of the same paper as the inside back. I added a layered flower and some leaves and a rattle button which I enhanced by colouring the spots on it with a permanent marker and adding some glitter glue. I finished it with some pearls and then adhered it with foam tape to the front panel. The finished panel was then adhered to the front of the card with DST. I cut 'welcome baby' from glittercard with a plain cardstock shadow and adhered it to the inside back of the card.
