Double Z Fold Staircase Card

Love how this one has turned out!

Can't tell you how many years I have been doing a staircase card...but never quite got round to it... well now I have ... definitely a case of when the right products and the right card format collide....
EDITED TO ADD:- Tutorial now posted. Click here.....

Holly Berry Happiness meets Hearth & Home meets Greetings From Santa... with the Seasonal Decorative Masks thrown in...

And the oh so cute Christmas Trinkets Embellishments...
Back to this card another day... as this is definitely just Mark 1... though I think my ladies would have hit me for Mark 2 as it would have taken quite a long time more... and Mark 3... well that could be another story!!!
And here is the window detail...

  12. I am in love with making these z-folding cards as so many themes can be used. I've done weddings, to sports to the Seaside Shores...Many ideas to use once we get the staircase directions..[just so I don't do it the long tedious way-lol]
