Star of Light Tunnel Fold Card & Tutorial

Another simple Star of Light card that packs a punch...

Clean & Simple on the front... 
But opening up to a bit of paper engineering... with a 3D star to finish it all off...
Craft Spa A4 Cardstock Recipe
Island Indigo 21x14.8cm (1)
Thick Whisper White 20 x 14.3cm (2)
Smoky Slate 9.8 x 14.3cm
Whisper White 9.3 x 13.8cm
(St) Thick Whisper White 10 x A4L (6)
(D) Silver Foil 7.5 x 10cm
(D) Island Indigo 4 x 4.5cm
where (St) means for stamping on and (D) means for die-cutting

Stamps - Star of Light
Inks - Soft Sky, Island Indigo, Smoky Slate
Tools - Layering Ovals dies, Starlight Dies
Embellishment - Gemstones, Wink of Stella

And the How To...
(1) Score Island Indigo panel LANDSCAPE at 10.5cm ( ie standard A6 card blank!)

(2) Score Thick Whisper White panel LANDSCAPE at 5,10,15 cm (TIP-Don't Bone Fold yet!)
(3) Die cut largest Layering Oval centrally
(4) Stamp all over
(5) Bone Fold Valley, Mountain, Valley

(6) Stamp 3 large Island Indigo stars & die cut
(7) Score down the vertical centre axis of each star
TIP - these 2 steps are a lot easier/more accurate if you do them in reverse.... ie Score Whisper White strip LANDSCAPE at 5,13 & 21cm, then stamp the 3 stars centrally on the score lines, then die cut
(8) Valley bone fold each star
(9) Adhere right and left half-sides of 2 stars, then repeat for 3rd star

(10) Adhere right hand side of stamped white panel to inside right hand side of Island Indigo card blank
(11) Adhere 3D star to inside of card blank ( ie centre of star to centre line!)
(12) Fold flat & apply glue to top of left hand side of stamped white panel
(13) Close card over onto the glued panel

(14)Ink up and stamp front White panel - Soft Sky star spray, Island Indigo 8-prong star and greeting
(15) Die cut large Silver Foil & small Island Indigo fancy stars
(16) Adhere all parts
