DS4J October Christmas Christmas Challenge

This month the Christmas challenge at DS4J is a sentiment.  There were two but I liked this one the best.  I used it for a card for one of my Design Teams, but it won't be made public until toward the end of October.  I saw this fold on another site and decided to try it.  Yes, I'm still on my "different folds" kick.  I used a sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper cut in half lengthwise.  Then I scored it at 5.5 and 2.75.  I first folded it on the 5.5 score line and then in the opposite direction on the 2.75 score line.  I used Anna Griffin 6x6 Emerald Forest for the background.  The die cut is done with a Spellbinders die on American Crafts foil cardstock.  I adhered it only half way onto the short side so that the card will open.  The sentiment is printed on Xpress It cardstock and outlined with a gold leaf pen.  Because the die is done with foil, it was a little difficult to photograph.  It really looks so much better in real life.
