Center Fold Box Card - St. Patrick's Day

Good Morning My Friends,

Wow last week was a doozy!  I had to have work done on my teeth that included shots of Novocaine and then we had this unbelievable wind storm for two days.  There was a lot of damage in my neighborhood, luckily no one was hurt, but we had loss of electricity and trees down everywhere. 

I didn't have time to get my design team card in for International Art & Soul the challenge theme was a really good one!  #28 Emboss (using emboss folders or heat emboss) and use a die!  I hope that you will stop by to see what my design teams sisters created and also join in the fun!

So on to my card for today.  It is my very first time making a center fold box card.

This is what it looks like from the top:

And here it is closed for mailing.  I didn't have time to make an envelope.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Dragonfly Journeys - #113 Going Green
a2z Scrapbooking - March 2018 Challenge

‘The Old Year’.

The Old Year’s gone away
To nothingness and night:
We cannot find him all the day
Nor hear him in the night:
He left no footstep, mark or place
In either shade or sun:
The last year he’d a neighbour’s face,
In this he’s known by none
