Thanksgiving Harvest Tyiptych Card

Happy Labor Day everyone!!  Hope you are enjoying the long weekend.  We went to the county fair this weekend.  I completely believe that there is nothing better than cotton candy and funnel cake from the fair!  Oh, if only you could get that just anytime you wanted to.  : )

Today I am sharing with you a card that I just recently discovered how to make.  Isn't this the coolest design?  You know?  You could make a card like this too.  There are free templates available to anyone who is interested in making a card like this HERE.  How cool is that?  I love the fresh new look, and I have been trying to do new things with my cards more frequently.  After awhile, square cards can tend to get boring, and it feels good to switch it up every now and then. 

I decided to make this a Thanksgiving card, because I have not done any of those yet.  I have done Christmas before Thanksgiving, so I at least wanted to get one Thanksgiving card done.  I don't give too many of them out, so it is not a beat the clock thing to get them done, but it is still nice to have one done anyway. 

Sort of a glorified gatefold, don't you think so?


I do love how it looks as if a gate is opening when you open this card.


A look at the back side of the card...

I would like to enter this into the Whimsical Ink Sorority Challenge to make a card like this and to thank them for introducing this type of card to me.  I hope you enjoy my card and that perhaps I have inspired some of you to try this or even just to try something new.  Thanks for coming to visit me today, and I appreciate your comments or thoughts on my card. 

Have a lovely day and end to the holiday weekend.  See you soon my friends.

Hugs,
