A different sort of fold

I tried a different sort of fold today, having seen a card done with it by a crafting friend on FB, who pointed me in the right direction for the instructions.   Fairly easy with my Hougie Board.   Image is from RHS Soceity cd by Joanna Sheen, printed on Conqueror paper and then double mounted on card.  The wavy peel-offs are in fact pink holographic ones. 


Here is a slightly better view of front taken outside this morning, which shows the base of the card a tad better.


This is the inside.  Matching insert from the cd, put into publisher so that I could change the colour of the font on the message.  I have also lined the inside of the back of the card with the matching backing paper to the image and added some corner peel-offs.

If I hadn't already printed off the image and paper, I think I might have chosen an art-deco image from Fashion Boutique, as I think the shape of the card lends itself to Art Deco.

If anybody is interested in the fold there is a template and video on the designer's blog: 
http://valitasfreshfolds.blogspot.com/  (look under the scor-pal section).   She has some great ideas in other sections too.

I used a different sized card to that in the template - mine is an A5 card.
