The Joy of Sets - Double Z fold

 Thanks so Much for stopping by!

For those who are stopping for the first time, 

my name is Annette Ball welcome to 
Stampin' with the Bees.  

Today I am participating in a Blog Hop 
and the Theme is Z Folding cards

I have been wanting to create a card like this for a VERY long time!! It was a wee bit time consuming but so worth it!! I love it!! And now that I have it completed I want to make more..with lots of different dsp!!  Perhaps even do it in a class!! 
I hope you Love it as much as me!

I decorated every surface with a layer of Real Red and Let it Snow Designer Series Paper.
The cardbase is Basic Black

I put this panel on the back so I have a place to write a message.
Stamp set is Snowman Season item# 150458
Let it Snow DSP item #150393
