Fancy Flap Fold Card

I think that is the name of this fold.  I found this on Pinterest of course and knew I wanted to give it a try, perfect to enter into Barbara Campbell's Challenge that she is hosting over at Stamp TV, Count Your Layers.  I will also be entering this into the Challenge at Simon Says Monday, Citrus With A Twist.

I used the Gina K Designs stamp sets, Autumn Beauty and Enjoy The Sunshine.....perfect titles as there is no nicer place than to be on Cape Cod once the Fall arrives....truly!!!  I've tried to count the layers.....I counted 16.....BUT I'll let you try and count them.  :)

Isn't this pretty cool how it opens up?  I quite love the entire look!  Image colored with Copic Markers.

Plenty of room to write a lovely little note to the recipient, which happens to be my dear Aunt Maurine. 
Here are all the ingredients:
Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
Buttons And Twine
Spellbinders Classic And Scallop Circles Dis
MFT Blueprints 12 And Bracket Edge Duo Dies
Penny Black Heart String Die
And if you'd like to give this Fancy Flap Fold Card a try, here is the VIDEO.
