Star Fold Birthday

Well hello all, I'm a little late posting today, was out picking Saskatoon berries (very much like Blueberries only a little tangier). They have just started to come in and my goodness there is a lot of them. We have to beat the birds to them so I'll be in the berry patch the rest of the week.
Our challenge this fortnight at Crafting With Dragonflies is to use an unusual fold. No easels, not that easels aren't beautiful, but something different. Be great if you could include a link or instructions for your creative fold! I really look forward to seeing what you come up with!
I used a star fold card. I found the instructions here. I don't have a score board, so I use my regular paper cutter with a scoring blade in it. Problem there is that my paper cutter is not as fond of making straight and accurate cuts as I am. So my creases weren't perfect but still workable. I used Kraft cardstock as my base and Sandylion's Little Boys scrapbook theme pack for my papers and stickers. A maple leaf brad and white sticker letters finished off my decorations on the front. This card is for my nephew, his birthday is July 2nd, the day after Canada Day. He was 8, and had just wrapped up his baseball season. Just a plain white cardstock triangle inside for our sentiment.
We have 2 sponsors this week and as always a top 3, just remember to be a follower of the challenge blog so that you are eligible to win! Delicious Doodles and Di's Digi Designs are our sponsors.
Now off to bag up today's berry pickings :o)
