Stunning Leopard Card
Hello and welcome to my card for the day!!!
To start with this is the card - instructions and info to follow....
The image and backing papers were printed from a beautiful new CD by Cupcake Crafting called "A Walk On The Wild Side"
I used a 5"x7" card blank but folded it as a gate fold card to start
I printed the leopard printed paper onto 100gms matt photo paper and cut into 2 A5 piece, adding one A5 piece to the back of the card inside and then cut the other piece into 2 long narrow strips which were then added to the doors of the gate fold,
The CD offers a choice of large or small decoupage, this image was the small which comes on an A4 sheet together with a backing paper so ideal for a quick card!
In this case I made up the simple to cut out 3d decoupage and matted it onto a layer of gold mirri card to leave a small border all round!
The panel was then added approx 5cms down from the top and attached to the LEFT door only - be sure to only add double sided tape to left half of topper!
I also printed off the many sheets of funny captions as well as sentimental verses, chose one that fitted the leopard and matted that onto gold mirri card - this was then attached to the RIGHT door only so when closed the panels overlock.
Finally I printed out a verse onto translucent vellum, trimmed with deckle edge trimmer and attached to inside of card over the leopard backing which still shows through!
So - that was my card for Thursday - please leave me a comment so I know what you think to the card, the explanation - and even the lay out!!
