Christmas Advent - 24 Days of Tutorials - Day 22

 Today's tutorial is: FUN FOLD CARD

Hello everyone! ANGELA here and I'm sharing a fun fold card featuring Winter Sled Marci and the Holiday Hippos. I love doing different fold cards and this one was so much fun.  A fold like this is a great way to set a scene for multiple stamps and dies.

White Cardstock:
(1) 12" x 6"  Score at 3" and 6" 
various scraps to cut die cuts
Pink Cardstock:  
(1) 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" 

Green, Yellow, Gray, Light Pink cardstock:
Various pieces for die cutting 

Patterned Paper:
(1) 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" 
(4) 2 3/4" x 5 3/4" 

    Start by scoring your cardstock on the 12" side at 3" and 6".  Once scored, crease.

          Cut a piece of Pink Cardstock at 5 3/4" x 5 3/4" and a piece of pattern paper at 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".   I originally intended on using the plaid pattern, which is why it's up on that side, however I ended up using the other side as I liked how the snowflakes looked.

Adhere the pattern to the Pink layer and adhere to the largest part of the card.   Next cut 2 pieces of pattern paper at 2 3/4" x 5 3/4".  

Adhere these to the smaller folds.  

Next cut several hills from the Double Stitched Hills Border Die.   I cut several down at 2 3/4" in width for the smaller flaps.

I next lined these up and adhered to the card to set up my scene.
I next took the various dies that I had cut and started to lay out how I might want the scene to look.  This is a great way to determine how many dies you might want to use.  

I colored the various dies (but decided to keep the Ski Lodge Die white).      

I then started laying out more of the dies I cut again trying to add to my scene. 
I used Art Glitter Glue to adhere my dies in place.  I used foam tape to pop up Marci, however I did not for my hippos as I did not want the extra bulk.

I used the tag from the Curved Pocket Die to stamp my sentiment.

I decided to put magnets on the backside of the smaller flaps to allow my card to sit flat.  I used double sided tape to secure in place with glue dots under.

I cut 2 additional pattern pieces at 2 3/4" x 5 3/4" and adhered to my flaps.
