This card and front panel were sitting on my table for ages because I just couldn't find a way to use it that I liked. When I ran across some large scraps of the same copper paper, I had the best solution (finally!)
After punching out the flowers and gluing them together, I discovered that the large flower fit the stem of one of the large flowers in the dsp design. The smaller flower fit the greeting strip. All I needed to finish were two clear gems and the greeting.
As Frenchie would say, "Voila!"

This is the first card with my new SU Sprig Punch, and I think I'll be giving it a lot of use. These double gate cards are fun to make! You just have to remember to use adhesive only on one side. (Ask me how I know...)
The flower makes use of layered SU punches that are sponged and stacked with glue dots and embellishments on top..
The flower and sprigs are mounted to the left side. I tucked the right flap between the petals to keep it closed.
I plan to add a greeting when I'm ready to send it.
TIP: My "rule" for how many scraps to keep, I save only those that are bigger than an index card. It used to be business card size, but I still had too many to keep.

The more double-pleated cards I make, the easier they get. I plan to use this for a January birthday. The greeting will go to the right of the large snowflake.
This design and dsp would make a good masculine card.

...AND INDIAN SUMMER, TOO!
I sure hope the weather improves by winter.
We had very few hot days without rain,
and the wet weather followed right through this week.
I have a feeling we're going to have a lot of snow this year.
At least it's still summer in the Stamping Tower--
Bring on the pink flowers!
