The wonderful Sparkle of Sparkle Creations provided me with this cool image of Scooter Chloe to show my use of Copic pastel colors. Here she is in her soft, delicate hues . . .
To create my gatefold card, I used Bazzill lavender, tan and pink bling with some TPC Studio Sweet Beginnings Baby Girl Word Medley and Animal Dot double-sided patterned paper. Spellbinders scalloped circles and QuicKutz circles add a decorative element to the front with some Zva crystals, a Recollections wild rose, a couple of Wild Orchid Crafts mini roses and Martha Stewart rose leaf punches. Marianne Designs Creatables Decorative Elegance die cuts add some pizzazz to the flower bunch. This photo shows the front of my gatefold card when closed:
To do something different, rather than use my image on the front of my card, I decided to place the image on the inside of my card. I like the idea of opening the card's folds to find a surprise inside.
I've added a small pocket to the inside of the left fold that will fit a book mark, tag or a place to write a little note. The right fold is left blank. The image takes center stage. Here's how the full card looks when opened:
I've attempted to create the look of movement by airbrushing the background of the image using torn paper masks.
