Gatefold engagement card for grandson

 I don't make many cards with multiple folds  -  but our grandson's engagement is an event worth commemorating with a special card.  I used Spellbinder's Labels 4 die to cut the image and to create a window for it. I used my ScorPal to create the folds.   My "surprise" includes images of a firefighter and nurse (Dearie Dolls pre-colored) which I cut out and placed on the inner panels.  Our grandson is a hot shot firefighter - in Alaska this summer.  His fiancee is a travel nurse.  Both really enjoy the outdoors - fishing is a high priority - and I had enough of this paper for the front of the card.
The photos do not show this, but the base is double sided cs - I cut the mat and the letters from the side which also forms the back of the card.
I most likely will not make many of these cards - for me, very time consuming!  I realize the delicate image does not quite go with the outdoorsy DP - but I wanted to incorporate the heart theme as well as references to the interests of the couple.
