quarter fold card

now here's a new one for me!
i have to say that i have never done a quarter fold card or heard of one before
until we were asked to make one for the creative crew challenge
they are very easy to make and perfect for adding a photo in!

here is my offering
 i used black card stock with wasabi and white to off-set it a bit.
stamps were my jumbo rollers (sparling and sparkle and shine) with some versamark 
and then some wasabi embossing powder heated over the top.
be sure to use your embossing buddy to stop the static on your card collecting the powder.
border is from the pennant die.
also soem tiny tags added to the ribbon.
 here it is minus the ribbon
 unfolded with the photo inside. 
i also added some white inside so the kids can write xmas wishes to their grand parents :>
 one side was done with the sparkle and shine roller with a white star added to break up all the green
 sentiment is from season of joy and stamped in black
here is the card spread out before folding so you can see how it fits together.
it gets put together much like folding up a box with 4 flaps 

here are the measurements i used to make a card to fit a normal sized photo in (14x10cm) with where to put the folds in as well.
now if you know anything about me these measurements are approximate lol and may need a bit of tweaking hahahahaha

cheers ears
