Z fold Snow Scene Christmas Card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? This week is a bit busy for me. I am hoping to fit in some crafitng though.

On the way to  Destination Star Trek last weekend  we stopped off on  the way at the Crafter's Companion shop in Evesham. One of things I bought there was the Snow Scenes die set from John Next Door. We also had a very nice lunch in the cafe there as well. At home when I was looking for some inspiration for the die set and I came across this blog post Where the author had made a Z fold card with the Snow Scenes dies and she had written instructions.  My card is very similar to the one she made.

If you check her blog the instructions are there. The folded card is 5" x 5". The Snow Scenes dies work really well with this size. The background was made with the Falling Snow embossing folder from Creative Expressions. I sanded back the embossed card to reveal the white of the inner card. 

This shows the view from the top. It is good to decorate the panels all the way down.  The sentiment and Snowflakes come from the Happy Snowflakes dies set. 

It is so good  that this card folds up to be 5" x 5". As usual I made my one a bit puffy so it will need a large letter stamp. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting

A gorgeous card Jackie. I went to the Crafters Companion Shop in Evesham in the summer whilst staying in the Cotswolds. Loved it and yes th food In the cafe was lovely. Went with a friend who does a bit of crafting but she only stayed for 5 mins and said it was all too professional for her and went to the garden centre. I did get a couple of hours to browse.
