What about a quick last-minute entry for the "Fancy folds" challenge at craft-alnica?
I played with the idea of making an easel card, but then I decided to go for something different. A rather regular shape that would give me the chance to use this wonderful seaside image, and on the other hand feature a little bit of something special with its shape.
As it has been ages since I found the picture on the internet, I have no clue where it came from. However, it still surprises me how it features everything mom loves: a cottage by the sea, a comfy bed, flowers in the garden, a white teddy, grapes, strawberries, coffee, something sweet, and a kitten. I couldn't have done it better if I panted it myself!
Naturally, I immediately thought I'd use it on a card for mom, but I never knew how. Now, I thoought I'd combine it with a background paper featuring gravel and a bunch of orange roses. Surpisingly, the gravel-and-roses combination seemed to fit, and after a bit of cutting, folding and arranging the details, ths is what I came up with:
I decided to place a white paper on the inside, however it is not visible when the card is closed.
Of course that meant the roses would have to be arranged in a way they wouldn't interfere with the front image.
In an attempt to use up some of my papers and leave no part of the card empta, I covered the back, too.
