Tent fold card - 'Poppy'

Here's a variation on the tent fold card.
Mum wanted something a little different for her craft classes and I'd seen this fold on QVC.
The featured cards were gorgeous but they required a very large sheet of basic card stock.
I wanted to use standard A4 card and here's what I came up with:
A 120mm square card using two (UK) A4 sheets. 
There's a tutorial at the end of this post.

I made the flower using the Woodware Dahlia flower punch
and the flower centre - Woodware blink blink punch.

The stamped background 'SU - Baroque Motifs' stamps, embossed with fine detail gold.
Sentiments 'Big sentiments by Paula Pascual' embossed with fine detail gold.

You will need two A4 sheets of card

1) From the first
cut a strip measuring 297mm (length of A4) x 120mm

2) Score A4 half fold (line 7 on the Eazi-Score board) in the centre
             and 25mm in ('box line 2' on the Eazi-Score board) from either end.

3) fold into a 'tent' as shown above.

 4) From the second A4 sheet
cut a strip across the width (210mm) x 120mm high

 5) score the centre - A5 half fold (line 6 on the Eazi Score board)
and A5 gate fold (line 3 on the score board) either end

 6) Fold a s shown above

7) Attach the card to the piece you have just made.
flap (1) is attached under the base
flap (2) is attached on top

Hope you have a go - I think I'll be playing with this fold a little more.
Perhaps an aperture would be fun?

Thanks for popping by and I'll be back soon - promise!
