Here it is mid-November already!!  Only a little over a month until Christmas!  Gasp!!  And right now, it's time for some mid-month inspiration for Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.
 I decided to create a card with a fun twist on a gatefold.  I folded the pink layer top and bottom and then trimmed the flaps into triangles.  Then adhered the snowflake element on top.  It opens up as you see in the photo below:
I'll have to get a little creative with the writing/greeting on the inside so it doesn't show through when the card is closed, but it's a fun fold, so I think it's worth it.  I hope you get a chance to play along with us this month, there is still plenty of time left.  Hop on over to the CHNCC2 blog for the full details and to see the inspiration from the rest of the DT.
