PILE IT ON CHALLENGE #9 - TRI-FOLD




This week's challenge at PIO is to make a Tri-fold card.  This is the first Tri-fold card I have ever made.

It was hard to take a photo showing how the flap element when closed hooks under the middle flower of the bottom layer, revealing another decorative flower layer on top.  Again when open and standing up it also reveals the embellished flowers on main part of card.

As I'd been extremely tired this week having slepted practically for 2 days and nights I decided to use an image I'd already coloured from Mo's Digital Pencil.





Techniques:

Medium:
Copics and Prismas

Papers:
Digital paper - Polka dots
Plain - Crafters Companion

Punches:
Woodward Leaf punch
Woodward Small daisy punch

Dies used:
Marianne flourish die
Embellishments:
Pearls (Quixotic Paperie)
