Fancy Fold Card-Tutorial

Hello. Afer several requests for a tutorial on how I made this card I have done a tutorial. You do not have to do all the layers I added but just the basic card will suffice..

Materials needed..

3 pieces white CS- 7in X 5in
1 piece white CS- 12in X 5 1/2 in ( score this at 3 1/2in-7in&10 1/2 inches)
1 piece white CS-4 3/4in X 3 3/4in
2 pieces brown CS  6 3/4 X 4 3/4in
1 piece Brown CS- 5in X 4in

3 pieces DP 4 1/2in X 6 1/2in
3 pieces DP 3 1/4 X 5 1/4in
1 piece DP 5 1/4in X 1 1/4in

First take piece of white CS 7 X 5in and glue or tape a piece of the brown CS 6 3/4 X 4 /34 on both sides of the card. Then take the second white piece and tape the the 3rd piece of Brown CS to one side,, The piece with brown on both sides is the front of the card. Then tape the three pieces of DP
4 1/2 X 6 1/2in to the three brown pieces..

Take the white CS 12in X 5in and score at 3 1/2in-7in& 10 1/2in.. and fold up

Next either using a border die or cut by hand the top left corner of the white CS and one piece of the DP 3 1/2 X 5 1/4in..

 Now attach the  DP to all the front sections of this folded piece.

Next tape the left side of the folded piect about 1/4in from the side of the inside front piece and then tape the right side of the folded piece to the back of the card..Attach the last pieces of Brown CS and white CS to the centre of the back..

Now all is left is to decorate the card how you wish. Photos can be added to the centre pieces.. I have used lots of flowers as I love flowers and ribbons..Loz
