HSS Technique Challenge #22 AND A GIVEAWAY!!!!

I am so excited to share today's card! I have been DYING to make a gatefold card and this week's Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge allowed me to do so. I saw this idea demonstrated years ago at a workshop but can't find the original author's name, so I apologize for that. 

Here's the front view of the card.

Opening up for the inside view

Inside- space for a quick message or thought

Here's how I made it...
Start with a card stock measuring 4-1/4" x 8-1/2"
Make a score line 2-1/8" from each side.
Attach Designer Series Paper of your choice to the front side folds.
Stamp your desired image(s) to be your focal points on the front.
Attach by adding adhesive to half of the side of the image. If doing multiples, I would stager the side you attached them to the card with.
Add card stock to inside of card.
That's it. Super simple! Now come join us over at HSS this week with your favorite shape or fancy fold card. 
Let's give the details of the giveaway.
