Dutch Paper Crafts Snowflake Release- Double take


I was so excited with this Dutch Paper Crafts Snowflake release, that i couldn't stop making cards/projects.  I think i've made a variety of skill level projects/cards, to pretty simple to intermediate to detailed.   I am not sure where this one falls, but it's the second to last card i made in this release. LOL

For this card, i tried a new fold, i don't know if it's been done before?  (Probably).  I made a flap that tucks in between the card base and the first layer on the card.  So i am calling it a double-fold card.  Part of the sentiment is under the flap and continues inside the card.  The dies in this Snowflake release are;  Sussex Snowflake 98648, Sussex Globe 98656, Precious Snowflakes 98729, Gabriella Border 98649.
I didn't purposely put the Precious snowflake die above the first flap to make it look like an ornament.  Guess what though?  ..it just happened.. I intended for the snowflake to fill up the space under the flap and noticed it would work to be the bow "on top" of the Sussex snowflake design to then make it look like an ornament...however, my first attempt it was "off center" so i had to take it off and re-glue it.   The bear image is a clear stamp from Kanban called Wooly Bears/Santa Bears.

**Special note, all of the “silver” elements were cut with kitchen foil..so they are delicate, I used three layers when I cut the die to make it more substantial.  I would recommend silver cardstock.


Extra dies on this card not in the release are:
Marianne Designs LR0242 (background card base and first two layers)
Doo Hickey dies called Tea Label tags(flag/banner)

Wonderful Christmas with some awesome die cuts. Using kitchen foil is creative thinking- but diffecult. I've used it once myself. Silver cardstock is easier ;)
Thanks for joining our W challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge, and good luck,
