Collectables Art Deco - For You Gatefold

Good morning, what a lovely start to the day, the sun is shining, finally :)

For today's card I made a small gate fold card, just under 6" x 6", out of a sheet of black A4 card.  I cut the deco header die into the very edge using the outer edge first, followed by the pattern die, matching them up so they are level.

I decorated the centre of the card with some matt gold card, some soft pink floral patterned paper and a print from the Joanna Sheen Fashion Boutique CD which was layered onto matching matt gold before being stuck in place.  Two of the small Art Deco corners were cut in black and added to opposite corners.

The front had the small border die cut out twice from matt gold card and stuck either side along the folds.  The card was finished off with a gold and a black square, cut from the layering dies and stuck together before being stuck onto the front of the card as a closure.  The 'for you' was cut from the Pillow Box Die set and glued in place in top to finish off the card.

I hope you like it,
