Happy New Year Papercrafty friends!

Today’s card is inspired by a beautiful Christmas card I received from my friend Kathy.  The card has another smaller card attached inside the main card.  It’s a mystery? I’m not sure what it’s called in the cardmaking community but I’ve included a tutorial following the Shopping List that you can download and print off if you want to make one yourself.

Maybe I’ll call this a card-within-a-card, in any event it’s a fancy fold and pretty easy to DIY.  You’ll find the tutorial after the Shopping List.  The Seaside embossing folder I used to create the waves on the front of the card is on the CLEARANCE RACK so it’s your last chance to get it at a great price.
