Fall Gatefold

I saw a tutorial for a double fold gate card not too long ago and had to try it out. That worked out quite nice. So I thought I'd make another one.
I started out by thinking myself insanely clever by not looking up the directions and making it from wonderful steel-trap memory.  Yeah, that didn't go so well... but I did come up with an interesting card base that I'm sure you'll see at some point.
I scratched that one, pulled out the directions and made this one. Once you have the directions, the hardest part of this card is finding double sided cardstock that will work nicely for this style. You know, it has to be thick enough to make a decent cardbase and the patterns different enough to tell apart but not jarring.

The Fine Print: Double sided CS from my stash, card topper by unknown, greeting by Stampendous, squirrel and nuts by Taylored Expressions, leaf stickers from my stash.

Well these go perfect together but must adit when I do this shape i make twice as much work for myself and use blank card an one sided paper. Now your idea is a worthwhile life saver. Hugs Mrs A.
