Mornin'  This card was created from scraps, I put my hand in the box that I keep far too many scarps in and grabbed a handful.  This is the result, thankfully all the colours matched.

First Post Here we go...

It would be great if I got anyone following this but hey I've created it so I can remember what I've made.  Today I'm adding a Card I made for my friend Marlene's daughter Civil Partnership.  It's still a struggle to find a wedding card that doesn't say wedding so she asked me to make this.  There was no colour theme for the 'event' so we decided on White on White which I think looks more interesting, sometimes.

This was a gatefold card the size determined by the Spellbinders expandable pattern die I used on each 'gate' .  The next pic shows how this double gate opened.
The final picture shows the detail of the front, there was a fold out section inside for Marlene to add a poem she had written but I didn't take a picture of this.....that's me......
 I used Spellbinders Extenable patterns Nature
