New challenge, new fold

There's a new challenge today at PINspirational Challenge -- the challenge is to try something different. This challenge is sponsored by SheepSki Designs, so try something different and link it up, and you'll be in a random draw for a gift certificate to the SheepSki store.
For my "something different," I tried a new fold I saw on SCS.  It's called a Double Triangle fold and I like this fold for two reasons. 1) it's so easy, I can remember the steps without referring back to the tutorial, and 2) when you cut the papers on the diagonal, your leftovers are perfect to make a second card.

The directions are simple -- take a full piece of cardstock. Score in half vertically, horizontally and on the diagonal. Cut on the diagonal (it probably won't fit in your paper cutter on the diagonal, so just use scissors and follow the scoring). The result is sort of a diagonal gatefold.

To decorate my card, I used some patterned paper from a very old DCWV mat stack that has a safari theme. I die-cut a glittery lion off one of the shets to create my center image.  I also used a snippet of the cardstock to decorate the inside.

This card is for these challenges:
