Before I get to the card for today.  I apologize for being late with my post.  Goodness, sometimes life just gets in the way!!

Also, I want to let you know that my next post will not be until Thanksgiving.  I am going on a wonderful trip to Europe with friends.  I return on the 20th and I know will be seriously jet lagged.  I do not seem to bounce back from these as quickly anymore.  Can you relate???  Anyway, I wanted to let my regular followers know not to expect me for the next two weeks.  The hubby will be home with the animals , but unfortunately neither he or the four legged children care about keeping the blog going.  I know it is shocking!!

So now on to the card.  As I  mentioned on the Gate Fold card I did earlier in the week, my club did a card swap with a fold challenge.  This is another one of the folds that was shared.  I have cased it and made my own version.  This one is from Velda North.

I love the acorns in the diamond shape as the focal point.  I do have to say that the DSP and the Lemon Lime Twist around the acorns are the stars of the show.  It looks like a normal card (if there is such a thing) but it opens only partially.  Here is the inside view.


Even with the somewhat partial opening of the card, this is another super easy to make.  And I can think of a lot of cute DSP to use for the front.  Even using two different patterns would be great I do believe.

I have added measurements and directions under the measurements.  The supply list is at the bottom of the page.

Thank you so much for visiting today, Especially since it is this late post.  And remember to check back the week of Thanksgiving to see more of my creations.
