4-Panel Christmas Card with Designer Papers + Birds with Blooms DieCut









Look at what my daughter surprised me with - she made a card like this, and it was soooo pretty, I had to know how.....so she show'd me!  Fancy that - she's been paying attention all this time, lol! 

Not really - I always say that she is very creative when she wants to be....ever since she was very young and she'd come up with some really artful poetry, while she may have made some funny-looking rabbits for easter bunnies or elves (none of them had arms, and very over-sized heads, ) in the beginning...she always was amazing me with the naturalness of her creative streak! 

But I digress....here are the basic instructions....go ahead, make one - they're fun!!!


Card Dimensions
   cardstock = 5.5 x 10-3/4 inches
   score at 3-3/4 and 5-1/2 and 7-1/4 and 9 inches.   Fold into valleys and hills (accordian style)
    turn 90 degrees and fold so that you can cut between (no further, no less) the 5-1/2 and 9 inch scored
   lines, at 1 inch from the bottom.  Unfold back to original, and still working between the area you've just
   cut - push in the center panel so that is folds opposite than the direction of the 1 inch top & bottom of the
   same panel.  See picture.   Pretty easy....decorate as you wish, have fun!
    

Stampin' Up! Supplies:
Big Shot and Birds and Blooms Bigz Die/  Scallop Oval and Large Oval Punches/ Soft Suede, Very Vanilla  and Real Red Cardstock, Real Red Classic Ink, Close to Cocoa Designer Paper.
