Hearts Come Home U Bridge Fold Tutorial - Fancy Fold Friday

A Fancy Fold tutorial for you today.... and it had to be for this Bridge U Fold Card as its popularity on Pinterest tells me so! So here you go to save you having to work it all out... as it really is rather simple in principle...

Please note that my card is sized to fit in a standard A6 envelope with the full width of die cut houses showing in the front central area... and that the US/inches measurements are a direct conversion from the centimetres.
Craft Spa Recipe
Night of Navy card 21 x 10.5cm H (8 1/4" x 4 1/8" H)
Thick Whisper White card - Front 16 x 7cm H  (6 1/4"x 2 3/4" H); Middle 13 x 10.5cm H (5 1/8" x 4 1/8" H) ; Back 10.9 x 9.5cm H (4 1/4" x 3 3/4" H)

1. Night of Navy panel LANDSCAPE (long edge along top). Score at 2.5cm and 5cm (1" & 2")
2. Turn 180 degrees
3. Score at 2.5 & 5cm (1" & 2")

4. Stamp as necessary (using Craft Whisper White Ink)
5. Fold as Mountain, Valley, Valley , Mountain

6. Score LANDSCAPE Middle panel at 1cm from each side
7. Die cut 3 house borders as necessary  (TIP:- note the position of the left hand tree and the church on the Middle section as you position the die... I actually cut the front and middle sections together so I knew the church was where I wanted it in the gap!)

8.Trim Front border to ends by hand
9. Ink up & Stamp greeting on Front border

10. Assemble all parts (Tip: I stuck the back, then the centre, then the left hand side of Front and finishing off with the Front right)
