Flower Girl Special Gatefold Card

I am working with a few other Close To My Heart consultants to run a virtual crop online each month. We are each presenting ideas for cards, layouts and other items. This is a card that I presented earlier this weekend. It is called a Floating Gatefold Card - and the inside is awesome! 

I used the July Stamp of the Month as there are beautiful images in that set. The front of the card was stamped along the top and bottom edges. The focal image is the girl holding the bouquet. All the colouring was done using the Tri-Blend markers. The card is attached using a small hook and loop dot. 

Now let's take a look inside... 

The squares appear to be floating - it's such a neat look! The same border stamp was used to stamp a border all across the top and bottom and then it was coloured. There are black mats on every piece (including the front) but I purposely keep the border very small. The sentiments were stamped, coloured and attached to the centre panel. The flowers are from the top part of the bouquet from the largest stamp, starting just above the girl's arms. They were coloured and attached to a stitched black frame. They were then mounted to appear as though they are floating. I added Gold Stickles to the centres of the flowers as I didn't want to use anything bulky that would prevent the card from closing properly.
