Sample No.4 A Quiet Place

Todays sample from Sarahs new Cd The Secret Garden is called A Quiet Place.
I used two designs of backing papers for this card, which is an A3 white card folded with a gatefold to the size of 8"x 7.3/4" size. The outside two folds of the card Ive used the same paper and on the inside as well, but used a different one for the large centre space. I have also used this same paper in strips on the front but have used my Martha Stewart border punch to give it a pretty edge. Mind you its a bit difficult to see in this photo. Around the edges of the paper Ive also used thin gold peeloffs and corners just to give it a better look. I should have also said that Ive used pink pearlescent card to mount the outer two papers on these folds to give it a bit more stability.
The two toppers were first manipulated in My Craft Studio program to resize them to fit the two front folds, these were printed onto photo paper and left to dry, Then I cut them out and mounted these onto pink pearlescent card. The greeting was also printed on my computer and mounted in the same way as the toppers, Ive also run a gold pen around the edge of both the topper and greeting.
To finish of the card Ive used 3 different flowers with a pearl brad and stuck them to the left handside at the top. Ive still to print a insert to fix to the inside centre panel, and Im trying to decide the best way to mount it.
