I wasn't sure what to call this card, but I found a spot where someone called it a Four-fold card, so we're going with it. So here it is. Project #2 of The 12 Projects of Christmas 2023 is a Four-fold card.
Three pieces of Balmy Blue cardstock make up this Four-fold card:
-3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
-2 3/4" x 4"
-8 1/4" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4", 5 1/4", 6 1/4", and 7 1/4" (or 1", 2", 3", and 4". Either will work!) Cut as shown below:
Basic White cardstock:
-4" x 5 1/4", embossed at the top with the Snowflake Sky 3D Embossing Folder (inside)
-1" x 4" (snow, inside)
-Second largest rounded rectangle from the Nested Essentials Dies
-Bear, stamped with the Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Pad
-1 1/2" x 2 3/4" (snow, outside)
Beary Christmas Designer Series Paper:
-3 1/4" x 4 1/2" (snowflakes)
-2 1/2" x 3 3/4" (night sky)
After accordion folding the card, it's clear to see the two accordions on which to adhere the other Balmy Blue panels. The first one gets adhered to the top accordion, and the second one gets adhered to the middle fold. I made sure that nothing on the second or third panels hung over to the right side of the card so they would be more of a surprise when it opens. See again how all of the fun is neatly tucked inside the card when it's closed?
For the snow-scapes, I tore the paper to give it a snow hill look. For the front, I just tore the top section off, but the inside section I started with a width of 1", tore it basically in half, then adhered the two halves together, making sure the frayed edges are facing out when adhered to the card.
