Blue Fern Autumn Anthology 9x11 Folio

This Blue Fern collection has gorgeous papers and I have been searching for just the right project for them. I generally make mini albums, but this paper really lends itself to a larger size to accomomdate these beautiful images, so when I found the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts 9x11 folio, I knew it was perfect for this project. Cutting the pages to fit this 9x11 format allows the use of the major corner images and leaves the other side of the paper to be trimmed as a two or three inch pocket with the secondary images.

The folio comes in three pieces that look like this:

The two loose pieces are glued to the right side:

I added some small flips to the left side:

Bazzill Rose Gold foil is used as a mat on all sections.

The cover:

                   The Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts "Frame Bella Round" comes in two pieces.

                       I cut an extra bottom piece out of the Rose Gold and used it as a base for 
 the flowers on the right side of the cover:

                       When the left front cover is opened, the right side of the roundframe is not  
                               glued so that it can be used to slip in a photo or a dedication. The chipboard color                               looked really good with the Rose Gold foil, so I left it as is.  A piece of ribbon is glued under the paper as part of the closure.                 
This is the full right cover.     
This is the opened left flip and the
second piece of the ribbon closure:

When the right cover is opened there is a 9x11 piece of Autumn Anthology paper with no extra embellishments, and the right side flips.

A closer look highlights a pocket with Rose Gold/Blue Fern tags.

And lastly, I used clear Wink of Stella to further highlight the images.
