Transparent tri-fold

I spent much of Sunday working on this card off and on. My creative process is sort of organic, I start with one thing and then see where it leads me. I started with my new transparency sheets and my new pink Stazon. I used the swirl from Delight in Life on the clear sheet, then attached it to the 5.25 square pixie pink card base usin black brads.

I got the idea for the Prima flowers (with Prima rickrack stems) from the June/July issue of Papercrafts magazine. I think they look pretty cool. The pink panel on the side seemed kind of naked, so I stamped it with the small Delight in Life flower in pink stazon; you can't see it very well, which makes me think I should have used white craft instead.

The second layer of the card is stamped in the dotted background from delight in life in Pink Passion, with the sentiment from Sincere Salutations in black.

Inside, I used a panel of delight in life flowers stamped on a piece of white cardstock down the side, still leaving room for a message. I'm having fun experimenting with all this new stuff!
