Christmas box type card

I saw this make on a FB page & was very kindly given the measurements to make this box type card.
Take some A4 card & cut it so you have a piece 15cms x 29cms
Looking at the card longways now -
score it at 15cms........18.5........22.........25........28.5...........
DON'T fold the 15cms....that is where it folds back and you stick, it is like a guide line.
Fold your creases and burnish the folds.
Put some double sided tape on the very tip where it will fold back and decorate.
It folds down flat so you can get it in an envelope.
I thought it would be difficult to do but it was quite straight forward.
Once I had made the base I covered using some lovely patterned papers that were free from Simply Card & Papercraft magazine - BoBunny silver & gold collection.
I was lucky enough to have been sent the die cuts - I threaded some lovely ribbon through the frame die cut.
I backed the bauble die cut with some gold paper.
Adhered the frame & bauble into place.
Added some bling & ribbon from my stash & the felt reindeer is from Hobbycraft.
A little sentiment was cut from the BoBunny papers, matted onto some card & placed on the card using foam pads - it says '& to all a goodnight' .
This was fun to make & will look different standing on someones mantlepiece.
Thanks for stopping by,
