September DT Challenge
for Craft for the Craic
Theme, Anything but a Square or Rectangle 

I decided to give the C5 side opening card a rounded finish
Front and back panels are 15cm by 21cm
and the front panel is scored at 6cm to form the side opening.
I use a side plate as a template for the front layers
the back layer is cut with a fiskars corner edge scissors
these scissors are no longer available from fiskars
but you can fine the odd one on ebay, if you see it grab it.

I added a pink mat layer inside, and a greeting panel to the back wall of the card, and a poem to the inside left panel
and finished the back layer with
 paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
card fully opened

View of card flat
I chose a lovely vintage baby image
and decoupaged the layers
and added it to a circle doily
I added some lace to the side panel 
which is stuck down flat
and finished it with a double bow.
