Folded Deco Ovals Live The Life Die Card

I kind of made this fold up as I went along, I saw something similar on the internet made by Nicky Gilburt on the Card Making Tips Facebook page.  Nicky used two sheets of A4 but I decided to just use a sheet of white A3 lengthways score so you have a 5cm panel, then a 3cm panel, followed by a 4cm panel and finally another 3cm panel then repeat these on the other edge, 5, 3, 4 then 3.  Fold all the score lines place on your paper trimmer to trim the height of your card down to 21cm.

Working from the outside panels I die cut the Verso Clematis Climber strip die out of light blue card for each side and then I used the matching outside edge die to cut the edge of the actual card so that when you stick the die cut panels in place you can leave a small white border.

The next small panel in uses the waste from the Clematis Climber die cut joined with a length of 10mm white grosgrain ribbon.

The centre large panel was layered with silver mirror card and light blue card, leaving a small border each time.  The large Deco Oval outer edge was cut in blue and white with the patterned die being cut out of the blue layer, these were glued together and stuck onto the panel with 3d foam pads.  The  'Live The Life You Imagined' was cut from white and silver and drop shadowed and the Rococo Petite Butterfly Sprig was cut out of silver mirror card and attached to the top with some tiny pearl stamens for antennae.  The card was finished with some pearls in the corners and on the ribbon strips.

I hope you like it,
