Hearts Come Home & Hometown Greetings Bridge U Fold card #4

A Simple Fancy Fold in the Navy & White series for you today seeing as it is Fancy Fold Friday...

A perfect Card Fold for this set of dies.... whether you call it a U Fold, a Bridge Fold or a Centre Box Card Fold.... or even a Bridge U Fold Card that I used for the title!
So the one today has been tweaked in size a bit to fit the full length of the border die cuts across the central section... and still fit in a standard C6 envelope... but I think I want to further tweak so I will be back to this fold another day!

EDITED TO ADD - Tutorial now available. Just click here...

Or click here to see my Hearts Come Home chalets in the snow version posted earlier... the chalet one being based upon the U Fold Card tutorial I posted here... though using just one box insert...

So 3 simple borders die cut for the 3 main elements of the scene...
A bit of Whisper White stamping on the background to create the starry night scene... Spot the smoke in the centre!

A couple of Smoky Slate stamped and hand cut houses to add some interest at the back and finished off with a couple of die cut trees using the Card Front Builder dies...
