Cottage Corsage Gatefold Card

Woo-hoo! The Catherine Pooler Store has been restocked and the new release items from Welcome Home was among the items. I am in love with this stamp set, Cottage Corsage, and the coordinating Cottage Corsage Dies- also available in a bundle with the Cottage Garden Background Stamp. (affiliate links used)

I created a gatefold card, with a beautiful marble background peeking through-in my opinion, anyway!

I started with a piece of 4.25 x 11" premium white cardstock, folding at 4.25" at each end. Then I did the partial die cutting technique with the Cottage Corsage Dies, and then stamped and colored the beautiful flowers from Cottage Corsage with a watercolor brush and Mint to Be and Daydream Ink. On the interior base of the card, I stamped the Marble Swirl stamp in Mint to Be.

On the inside flap, I stamped a sentiment from the Cottage Corsage Stamp Set. The other flap is where I will sign my greeting. I folded the flaps in and tied it together with a sheer, mint ribbon.
I don't often experiment with different folds or card forms, so this was a step outside my comfort zone and I really enjoyed the results!
