Double Diamond Fold Koala Card

Hi and happy Wednesday!!  Kris here, sharing a fancy fold card that I saw in the Splitcoast Stampers Newsletter once and haven't had a chance to try it until now.  You can find instructions on their site here

 This is actually a thank you card for my mom -- I was sure when I planned my whole card that my die with phrases had a "Thanks" sentiment but it didn't, so I opted for "hello" and wrote my thank you note on the back panel :)   The two Koala images are from my Koala digi set, here.

Below is a pic of the card closed.  I punched a couple small holes on each inner point of the bigger diamonds and ran a piece of polka-dotted ribbon to hold it together.  The overall dimensions of this card I believe were 7" x 6" so I did not have an envelope so I used my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board and it was a perfect fit! 

And since it has a heart border inside, this would totally work for our February Challenge here on our blog!  Come "SHOW US YOUR HEART"   :) 

and don't forget, you have until 3 p.m. (PST) tomorrow, THURSDAY  to leave a comment on one of our New Release Giveaway posts for a chance to win one of our new releases!!
