This week's card is a 5.5" square gatefold. It has lots of layers but not too many bulky embellishments to make it easier to mail. When I printed this digi (from A Day for Daisies), I accidentally printed it on bristol paper instead of watercolor paper. I noticed a little pilling when I used my water brush the the Distress inks and markers but it actually did pretty well. Wink of Stella clear glitter adds a little shimmer to the flowers in the image and to the background flowers.
This week's verse is on the inside. When making gatefold cards, I usually like to put some sort of image, sentiment or at least patterned paper on the back of the panel that overlaps the "gate". The middle panel allows plenty of room for writing a note.
Here is a close up of the verse panel. Remember you can always click the picture for a closer look. :)
