Interlaced Gatefold Card

I spotted this idea on the Spellbinders Yahoo group and had to have a go.

(Excuse my thumb!)



I used one of my nestibility labels sets - cutting a full set of frames in both pink and brown (which means I've got another set ready for a second card.) The backing paper is from Personal Impressions. Inside, I've used an image from Ching Chou Kuik which has been coloured with Promarkers, and mounted on some Coredinations Whitewash card which was Wizarded with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then distressed with sandpaper.

The finishing touch was a couple of Prima flowers coloured to match the image.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Colour Create which calls for warm pinks, brown and white,
Incy Wincy Designs who are looking for distressing and
Creative Card Crew who are looking for die cuts.

Hi Josephine

Very clever idea.

It must have taken some patience to get all of those nestie cuts in just the right place.

Have a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
