Once again I am using the Snowflake Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP).  How can you use a Sparkling Snowflakes stamp sent and just not gravitate to this beautiful paper.  These two items seem like they were designed to be used together.  Who knows maybe the designer had that in mind!  One of my favorite things about Stampin' Up! products it that they coordinate so well together.  So, even though the Snowflake Magic Specialty DSP is part of the Winter Meadow Suite, I think it is perfect with Sparkling Snowflakes!

Are you looking at this fun fold and thinking YIKES?  I know I did when I first saw it, but the engineer in me was determined to figure it out!

If you would like to try it, don't worry, I've figured it all out for you!  I made cutting and scoring diagrams for each of the 4 main elements (the card base and the 3 steps) so you don't have to figure out measurements for yourself.

I'm not even sure what this Fun Fold is called, but how about we name it "Multi-step Fun Fold".  It sort of looks like steps doesn't it?

Once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy to put together as each step is made the same -- it's just a different size, but the way you attach it to the Z-Fold card base is the same.

This is a beautiful card to send to someone who appreciates your handmade creations!  It's made to be displayed because it will stand perfectly on its own on a shelf or mantel.

The snowflakes on the card front were stamped with the two smallest snowflakes from Sparkling Snowflakes.  They were stamped with VersaMark Ink on Basic White cardstock and then heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  A Rhinestone Basic Jewel was added to the center of each snowflake for even more sparkle.  The photos do not do justice to the sparkle on this card!

And all the foil layers from the Specialty DSP add even more sparkle and shine!

Maybe you are wondering, "where do I write my message?"

It' on the back.  I stamped 3 more snowflakes with Lost Lagoon on the back of the card.  The sentiments on the front and the back are both from Brightest Glow.   

Use this link to download a copy of the tutorial.  It is detailed and includes several diagrams, so should be easy to follow.  If there is interest, I would be willing to make a video to show you how to assemble this fun fold.  Leave a comment here on my blog and I'll watch to see how much interest there might be.
