Inspire. Creat. Stamping Challenge #006 - Fancy Folds!

Hi there!
Today it's time for another challenge at Inspire. Create. Stamping challenges.
I can hardly believe it's already week #006! And the theme this week is "Fancy Folds".
Now, I don't generally too make many fancy folded cards, I've been tending to stick to CaS cards of late, so I decided to dig through the archives on here and revive a fold that once I had re-made it I do wonder why I haven't made more of them! And it's always good to be pushed from your comfort zone, amiright?
So, to see the original design with a FREE tutorial too, go HERE. And this is my updated version using the Christmas Around The World DSP...
 I love the images and also the grey snowflake background on this paper. This is the same piece, just different sides. I'm always torn which side to use when they are both this nice ;-)
So, you can gently ease the top out from behind the tab at the bottom...
And then you can write on the back of the piece with the circle or the centre panel. I chose the circle panel and decorated it with some offcuts of DSP.
 So, the original tutorial used punches (including the retired 2.5" circle) and if you have them already, great! However here are the correct sizes to make this card with the Layering Circle Framelits :-)
The hole in the card base can be made with the second largest circle die, the small tab can be made with the smallest circle die and the popped up circle can be cut with the third largest die...
...but, I used the stitched edge die (for the popped up circle) which is the same size as that third largest die I mentioned before.
 So, I do hope you have a go at this card, it really is much easier than it looks and make a fun change to the regular shaped card which is always fun!
Don't forget to hop over to the Inspire. Create blog and see what the rest of the DT have made :-) And you can share your creations there too!
Thanks for looking today!
