GATEFOLD MESSAGE CARD

CLEARLY INSPIRED CHALLENGE 19
Today is the first Friday of the month. Its time for a Clear Dollar Stamps Challenge.
You'll find all the details on the Clear Dollar Stamps Blog along with a free digital
image download to use in the challenge if you don't have any CDS stamps
Hope you play this month.
This month's theme is Fall Feast.
So I used this cute little apple tree for my food and made a gate fold card.
This card is also for today's FREE FOR ALL CHALLENGE on Splitcoaststampers to make a project with a tail. My tail is my panel with my message.

You'll see this isn't an ordinary card. When you open it the message if revealed on the panel behind the apple tree. Sneaky huh?! It keeps the card closed too.
