A fun fold with coordinating layers and greeting!

Another card for my stash from the kits I made up for my March class.  The double sided decorative paper was trimmed to 4" x 5.25" and cut with a 1.75" slit on the center of the right hand side.  I scored between the end of the slit and the both right hand corners then folded the flaps over to reveal the pattern on the back.  I used a little piece of double sided tape to secure the flaps placing the tape right at the fold to keep the tips raised a bit.  I added a length of rose ribbon securing both ends with double sided tape.  I punched a laser printed digital image of a flower using a 1.25" punch and watercoloured it to coordinate with my pieces.  I layered it onto a scallop punchie (SU circle punch) and then layered it onto an orange scalloped circle (Nestibilities).  I manually embossed the right hand edge of an orange card and then added my background.  I mounted my floral focal image over the bottom of the slit using 3D foam tape.  The little greeting is a laser printed font trimmed to the right sized and distressed before being tucked under the flap and adhered into place.  The original ones from the class I had left with out greetings but as you can see greetings can easily be added.                       Therese
