Gate Fold LaLa

Last Wednesday LaLa Land Crafts challenged us all to make a card using a different kind of fold, anything except a simple single fold card. I decided to make a gate fold card using Winter LaLa and this fabulous Basic Grey Marakesh paper.LaLa is stamped on a Perfect Paper Panel from MFT. When I visited Kim in Florida last month, she gave me a few Perfect Paper Panels to try when I admitted I had never tried them. She is as bad as a drug dealer giving the first hit for free. Those things are AWESOME! The color soaks right in without having to use too much ink. Just fabulous!!

I scored my base card using my Score-Pal, then I cut some panels from the Marakesh paper and layered them on Riding Hood red cardstock. Finally, I punched out the photo corners and added the black brads to them before adhering them to the corners. I tied the card closed with some Bashful Blue satin ribbon, then popped Lala on top with some dimensionals.I added some layers inside and stamped a greeting from the new SU! sale-a-bration set. Be sure to check out the LaLa Land Crafts blog on Wednesday to see the next challenge!
