Vertical Nature Walk Card

Have I mentioned how much I like using book paper on my cards? 
I just love the vintage look that book paper gives.
This vertical card fits into a #10 business envelope, 4-1/8 x 9-1/2". 
My turquoise card base is 8-1/2" high and about 7-3/4" wide. 
I folded this in half lengthwise so my card ends up being about 3-7/8" wide.
Lately I have been using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue, 
the permanent method by positioning the layer while the glue is still wet. 
I see less warping than my old standby glue: 3M Scotch Quick drying glue.
I also like to use Scotch permanent double sided tape.
If you have adhesive preferences, I'd love to hear about them!

Here is the inside of my card.

Stamps: Stampin' Up! Nature Walk, 
Rebecca Sower EK Success Words from the Heart (Nostalgiques, The Attic Collection), 
a tiny clear stamp set from Prima #544959, 
Penny Black 2945H Friendships

Distress Inks: crushed olive, fossilized amber, ground espresso, wilted violet, mermaid lagoon, rusty hinge, barn door

Tombow markers: green 346, blue 452, orange 925, purple 623

Thanks so much for visiting!
