Here is my first Christmas card of the year:
I thought I would try using a fun fold for this special challenge. I am using the Double Dutch Fold. It is actually a lot easier than it looks. Here are the instructions for the card base:
1. Cut two pieces measuing 4 3/16" x 9" and 2" x 8 1/2"
2. Score the first piece at 5 1/2". Score the second piece at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8".
3. Layer the first piece over the second piece. Adhere the pieces together on the backside.
5. Here is a link if you need more help: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/doubledutchfold/
I actually made the card base in the first Step 4 3/16" (that is just less than 4 1/4") x 9 1/2". This allowed me to use the Scallop Edge Border Punch.
Here is the card with the top panel open:
