I've often seen cards like this and have really wanted to have a go. Then, earlier in the week I found a template on a fabulous blog here. Thanks so much, Connie Babbert. Don't be alarmed if you make it and think it's really small, as it's only 4 1/2 inches across the bottom. Connie's card looks big in her photo. You'll need to look at her photo to work out which are valley and which are mountain folds. I played about with it on a piece of scrap paper first, just to make sure I'd got it right. It's a lot easier than you think. The permutations are endless. You can use a tall, slim stamp or just use the rectangular section to put a topper in any shape you like, as I've done here with the snowman on an oval base. You could put a narrow sentiment all the way along the bottom, you could put a tag in the middle (that's my plan for my next card) or 3 flowers in the middle, ribbon around the bottom etc, the only limit is your imagination (and your stash!) Once you've made one, there'll be no stopping you!
I've decoupaged the snowman's scarf and put snow around his feet. I couldn't resist a sentiment that said, 'Let It Snow.'
