Gate Fold Holiday Card

Hello my friends!
Sorry I've not been posting a lot lately ... the mojo just hasn't been cooperating lately.
Plus with the weather being SO WARM and BEAUTIFUL for November in Ohio,
I just couldn't help but get outside and do a really GOOD Fall Cleanup this year!
But today I'm making myself get some cards created!
In fact, I have Christmas Carols playing on Pandora to help get me in the mood!

While scanning through Paper Playful this morning I spotted the challenge at Little Red Wagon which is 'Technique' as well at the 'Christmas' themed challenge for Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.

This card was created entirely of pieces and parts of paper & die cuts I had laying
on the work table.  I love when I can do that ...

I had actually planned on using the reverse side of this design paper (which looks like the inside panel) that I had over-stamped in white with a beautiful Impression Obsession Snow Flourish stamp.  But when I turned it over to attach my 2-sided tape I thought this side would look really cute for this gate fold technique.  And I have SO MUCH Christmas design paper (OLD and NEW) ... this comes from my old stash and I can't even tell you who the mfg. is.  Sorry!

Do you like the Sue Wilson Festive Collection 'Winter Trees' I've placed on the inside?
(Sssshhh!  Don't tell anyone but they were put there to hide a boo-boo!)
Yep ... I didn't let the stamped sentiment dry long enough and created a smudge while
adhering tape to the back ... so ...the trees were added to hide my hasty mistake.
But I must say ... I really like it!!  
Don't you love it when that happens???

My front sentiment tab was created from the smallest die cut from the
Sue Wilson Spanish Collection 'Seville' and a white panel from scrap card stock.
The snowflake is a cut out from the Impression Obsession Snowflake Background die. (see below)

I used the Snowflake Background on this card and decided to cut the center
snowflakes out to showcase the background image better.
