Fancy Fold Friday Cityscape U Bridge Fold Card

If this card was the village scene... and this one was the ski chalets in the mountains scene... then this one is the cityscape! 

Can't tell you how popular this U Bridge Fold card is being in classes! And I love it when the final words are "oh that wasn't so hard after all! I will be making some more..." and you certainly get lots of the images from one sheet of the papers to do so!
Resized to fit in an C5 envelope (so quite a bit larger) ... an extra section in the layering... and some hand cut-out extras from the Christmas Around the World paper pack (which are available on the 4 For 3 Paper Sale Offer running in October)

Background paper also from Christmas Around the World papers... plus a bit of marker pen or inkpad & blender pen colouring of doors, trees and roofs... and finally slivers of Foil behind the windows to add glint and shine... plus a silvery glimmer moon using the Card Front Builder dies... and there you have it...
And spot my favourite bit... the exhaust pipe smoke greeting strategically positioned behind the red car!!

And yes the card does fold flat to go in the C5 envelope!
I will be writing up a Tutorial in about 2 weeks time... but though for those of you that have already purchased my Bench Fold Card tutorial (Series One)... you already have the step by step details and the dimensions of the main card!
And before I go... here is an image of the Christmas Around the World papers... which are SO much nicer than I first thought.... I love all the images that you can hand cut out... The bottom two papers on the right being used for this card...
