Lovely as a Tree - #4

My next card using the Stampin' Up! set called "Lovely as a Tree." 

Again, I used bleach to stamp the image. A friend came over to stamp last week, and she showed me a couple cards she had made with this layout, so I made one. :) You can see in the other pictures how it opens. The cardbase and other pieces are ivory. I really do need to use alternative card formats and techniques.

Edited to add: I was asked about measurments for this card. These are the measurments that I used for my card - not any "official" measurements. I started with a card base of 11 x 4 1/4 inches, scored at 5 1/2 inches. My base is ivory. Then I trimmed one inch off the right side of the front. The other pieces for my card are as follows: ivory - 5 3/8 x 4 1/8, 3 x 2 3/8, 5 x 1; patterned - 4 1/2 x 4 1/4, 5 x 7/8; kraft - 2 7/8x 2 1/4; brown (image) - 2 3/4 x 2 1/8. The larger patterned piece is cut to entirely cover the card front. Maybe a border would be nice. Place the long patterned piece on the long ivory piece. Glue that to the inside of the back of the card and add the largest ivory piece on top of that. Mat the image piece, then add that to the long patterned piece, then add the last layer of matting on the opposite side of the strip. (The only part of the strip that shows on either side is the short part that connects the image to the card back. I hope that makes sense! I don't know what this card is called, but I'm sure there must be instructions somewhere!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Another beautiful way to use Lovely as a Tree!! Would you be willing to share the measurements for this card and colors. I would like to CASE it. Thank you.

I don't know if I have used that tree more than once. Your card is wonderful. The opening for the card makes it more fun for the one who receives it. Great job!

Very pretty card. That tree is such a nice image. Interesting card fold, too!

A clever fold! I like how it closes with the image panel giving weight. Gosh, your tree looks gold this time. I've sure used this oak tree a lot.

Does this card fold have a name? I'd love to be able to doe a search for the directions/measurements. Thanks!!!
