Creating a Folding Box Card - My Besties Project Share

I am so behind with my posting!   I promise to do better for the next year LOL    

So Here a one of the video's I created using  a folding box technique.    I just love this folding box!

This is a link from Kathryn's blog.   She has some measurements 
that are in cm and are a little different.   Check it out!

You can change your layer sizes to meet your needs.    
This is just an idea!  
Large Card Size
Card base 12 inches x 6 inches
Score at 1/2 in, 2 in, 3 1/2 in and a light line at 5 inches(to mark the bottom)
Mat 6 3/4 in x 5 3/4 in.
DP 6 1/2 in x 5 1/2 in
Focal base 3/1/2 x 4 1/2 
Score base of focal image at 1/2 in and 2 1/2 in.
Decrease you mat and DP olayes so you have 1/8 in around primeter.  
Add your colored image as desired. 

Small card Base
Smaller version to fit standard envelope (5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches )
Card base 81/2 x 41/4 inches
Score at 1/2 in, 21/2, 31/2 and light line at 41/2 in.
Focal image base 5 in x 31/4 in
Score at 31/2 in and 41/2 in.
Base mat  4 x  43/4
Focal image mat 3 1/4 in x 3 in.
DP  3 3/4 x 4 1/2
Dp for focal image 3 1/8 x 2 7/8 in.
Add you colored image.   
You can place it to one side and have fun adding trees or 
other fun embellishments to the platform :D 

Happy Holidays, my friends!
