Vintage Leaf Gatefold

Here's the third card from the Stampin' Up workshop I attended at my demo's house.  This is a gate-fold style card where it opens in the center.

The base is Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and the patterned paper panels are from the Blooms & Bliss dsp pack.  I stamped the Vintage Leaves images on a piece of watercolor paper using Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, and Rich Razzleberry inks.  Then I used a waterbrush to spread around the ink for a watercolor look.

I mounted the watercolor panel on a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock and wrapped some ribbon and lace around one side.  I adhered that to one side of the gatefold card.  I stamped a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes on a Very Vanilla oval and matted it with Mint Macaron. (both cut using punches)  The sentiment is popped up for dimension.

On the inside of the card, I adhered a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that I stamped with two of the leaves.

Quite simple!  It would be easy to do this design in different color combos.
