Fiddle faffing all day long.............

With this little number.
I found a fab tutorial here but it used 12 x 6" cardstock so I wanted to see if I could do it with A4.
In the end I shaved off just 1/8th of an inch off the first and last measurement - fiddly - and a nightmare for a class but it fits A4.  I also adjusted the front panels to 2 1/4" x 6".
Stamp set is Butterfly basics - colours soft sky and basic grey and the little blue bits I have used the large spot embossing folder - all from Stampin up.
You could add a ribbon coming round from the back to fasten it too but I decided against that for this sample.  The great thing is this pops nicely into a C6 envelope - downside is it would be a large letter post due to the bulk of folds - but worth it for a wow card !
Hope you like it x
Thanks for popping in x
