This is another card inspired by Wild Card, from Online Card Classes. Jennifer McGuire had a lesson on Day 1 on gatefold cards. My mom is in need of thank you cards, so I decided to make one based on Jennifer's lesson.

I stamped the "Mondo Magnolia" from Essentials by Ellen onto a piece of 140 lb. watercolor paper, using Spun Sugar Distress ink. I then did some no-line watercoloring with Worn Lipstick Distress ink & a water brush. When that had dried, I die cut it with the coordinating die. I also die cut my greeting using Lawn Fawn's "Scripty Thanks" twice from teal cardstock. I used Perfect Paper Adhesive to glue the die cuts together, just to give the greeting more substance.

I created my card base, and adhered purple cardstock to the front panels. I cut 2 pieces of lace from my stash and glued them along the open edges. Finally, I mounted my flower to one side with foam tape, and glued my die cut thanks on top.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:

Through the Craft Room Door: "Anything Goes"
