House Mouse Challenge #36

It is the lovely Janneke's turn to host the challenge at House Mouse this week and she chose a Gatefold card. Instructions on how to make one can be found at Splitcoast Stampers. Check out the other DT's cards, they are truly amazing.

***************

I chose double sided card from Costco and the image 'A Carrot between Friends' which I coloured with distress inks. I stamped it twice and scanned one into my computer, shrank it and used the smaller image on the inside. I would normally cut part of the image for the inside but - just look at it, which little sweetie could you cut off? I did the stupid thing (again) of not fastening my brad before attaching the paper to the card, now I'm trying to think what I can add to cover up the brad - suggestions please!!


Materials
BC - White linen : DP - Costco : Image - Stampabilities - A Carrot Between Friends :
Ranger Distress re-inkers : Friskars border punch : Sentiments - Inkadinkado

Beautiful.........love the colors you chose and the coloring on the sweet image is lovely too. The inside of your card is as beautiful as the outside! My favorite this week.

I always do that with brads, lol! This is a stunner and I love the pretty corners you've created! Are you practicing for Sunday with those colours, hee hee?
Hope you're having a great Bank Holiday! xx

So pretty! I love the blue and green. The two images are so sweet; you are so clever to have a second smaller image on the inside too :)

Suggestion for covering up the brad prongs: Cover both inside panels with the blue and layer of green. Maybe a little boring, but if the side panels are too "busy", I wouldn't want to detract from the lovely border punch and the cute rabbit and mouse. My feelings won't be hurt if you don't like the suggestion; your card is so pretty, I doubt it will be noticed!

Gorgeous card Heather. I do that all the time with brads lol. I normally end up putting a strip of paper over it, but I don't think anyone who received that card would even notice, they would too busy admiring the cute image :)

Heather, this is adorable! I love the image, and how clever that you shrunk it down to put it on the inside. I'm glad to know other people forget about how they're going to attach their brads. Maybe you could cut out some party-type images and put on the inside panels, like hats, blowers, etc. The front says "Let's Party", so that would draw out that theme. This is so sweet and I love the colors you used.
