The extra cardstock over the edge can be folded again for interesting variation or can be trimmed as I have done it.

With the basic fold done time to dress up the card.I have used 4 different pps in shades of blue and have distressed the edges with faded jeans DI.

Fancy fold card inside
Adhered a paper doily in center ,layered a piece of tulle over it and then loaded it with handmade flowers.All the flowers are made using punches while the leaves are handcut and inked with DI. Added die-cut flourishes to the floral spray.I have Stamped the sentiment on banner and adhered it with foam tape.
