September Paper Pumpkin - Alternative Project #2

So my Paper Pumpkin class for the September kit is over and I can continue to share what we did as our alternatives - here is the second project - we made a Joy Fold card -

For large card base (LCB) that will open to the left – you need a 4 ¼” x 8 1/4” piece of cardstock scored at 5 ½”, crease and put fold to the left. For small card base  (SCB) that will open to the right you need a 3” x 8” piece of cardstock scored at 4”, crease and put fold to the right.  Complete inside on LCB and front flap on LCB; as well as the inside on SCB and front flap on SCB with any layers and design you like in coordinating colors and DSP.  Open LCB to the left and with the SCB folded and crease to the right adhere it to inside of the LCB centered.  Open it and fold the left flap in, then the right flap over it.                       

Cardstock measurements:
Crumb Cake - 4 1/4"x 81/4" and 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"
Crushed Curry - 4" x 5 1/4" and 4" x 2 1/2"
Cajun Craze - 3 3/4" x 5"
DSP - 3 3/4" x 5", 3 3/4" x 2 1/4" and 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"
Basic White - 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" and 1 1/2" x 2 1/2"
Using Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze Inks, sponge color onto the white side of four leaves from the kit.  Stamp leaf veins with a coordinating color.  Put card together as shown. Picture of inside is below.
Stamp Sentiments of your choice with Cajun Craze.  Assemble the card as in pictures.  Add a cluster of leaves and a single leaf with glue dots to the front of card as shown, and a linen thread bow with a dot of Tombow liquid glue  That was it - finish inside and envelope as you like.
