Gothic Arches Challenge



This week's Gothic Arches challenge is to make a fold out card - my take on this challenge is a little bit reversed - the completed card is seen when the accordion is folded up. The first picture shows the folded card from the front and the others show it opened. The 1st panel is acetate stamped with white StazOn, the middle panel holds my Paper Whimsy image and flowers, and the back panel is the rest of the Paper Whimsy background where the cut out flowers came from. When the card opens, unfortunately the white back of the image is evident (and not all that pretty either) so I misted it with Glimmer Mist so it didn't stand out so much. I really liked the layered effect you can get by folding this card up.
