Sympathy Bridge Gatefold Card

I've been Copic colouring some of my favourite Hero Arts flowers ... Antique Rose Stem, Fleurettes and Hydrangea ... for the The Daily Marker 30 Day colouring Challenge.

I was watching tennis so didn't mind fussy cutting them.

I knew I wanted to use at least one of them for a bridge gatefold card. Although a number of people have made these 3D cards, it was Jennifer McGuire's blog post this week that spurred me to try one.

The flower on it's own would have been quite fragile so I decided to use a heart as a frame to help support it.

Here it is standing open.

This is what it looks like when folded flat to go in the envelope.

Here's a close-up of the wonderful dimension.
