Harvest of Thanks- A GateFold for the Pals Paper Arts!

Hi Again Stampers! 
I wanted to create one more card this evening and even though I am too late for the deadline, I just loved the Pals Paper Arts PPA165 Sketch  and decided to create a GateFold card :-)    I hope that you will find the time to visit their site- they now have two different Design Teams and they rotate each week for a new challenge, so again, tons of inspiration!!

This sketch seemed perfect for a Gate Fold card- so to create this card:

GateFold- Open 
Ink up the large label stamp from Harvest of Thanks using Stampin’ Write markers in Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango and Wild Wasabi and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.  

Use the Distressing Tool to distress the edges and a Sponge Dauber with Crumb Cake to antique the paper. 

Use the Big Shot™ with the Apothecary Accents Framelits™ to cut out the image and also cut a piece from Chocolate Chip.   Cut the Chocolate Chip layer in half horizontally to layer behind the focal image.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Circle Framelits™ to cut a circle from the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper and also a circle the same size using Chocolate Chip cardstock.  Cut the Chocolate Chip circle in half and layer behind the DSP circle and adhere the focal image label.

Use the Simpy Score™ Tool to create the GateFold from Whisper White cardstock and layer Chocolate Chip cardstock on the two gate folds in the front  (on second thought, I should have created the card base using Chocolate Chip cardstock- hindsight is 20/20 :-)))… Adhere a piece of embossed Sweater Weather DSP on both sides (Soft Sky Polka Dot pieces using the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder) .

Card in Closed Position 
Use the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch to punch out a piece from Chocolate Chip cardstock and attach to the bottom of a piece of Crushed Curry DSP (again from Sweater Weather), distress with the Distressing Tool and add to the right hand panel per the sketch.

Add the Chocolate Chip DSP panel in the center of the card as well as a piece along the lower right hand panel (distress as well) along with the Antique Brad and Gratitude sentiment (stamped in Chocolate Chip onto Whisper White and cut with the Big Shot™ and  the Bitty Banners Framelits™ to finish off the card.
