December Stencil Challenge STAMPlorations


Happy December. 
What I used for my project this month:

I made a fun fold card for my project. It is called a triple pocket twist card. I think the term "fun"- fold is more for the recipient than for the maker. I struggled with this card design. Several attempts ended up in the trash before I figured out the fold. 
But I do like how it turned out. First I am going to show you the little cards that go inside the pockets. I watercolored and stamped the leaves and used the leaf stencil to add gilding flakes. 

This is how the back side of the card looks. 

This is the front side of the card unfolded.

This photo shows where the pockets are when the card is folded up.
 You can see the little cards peeking out.

This is how it looks all folded up with the little cards tucked away into the pockets.
