Large Tiered Gatefold Cards

Hi everyone, this beautiful card happened by accident, I had planned to make something else, but then this style evolved and it kept getting bigger and bigger!

I’m calling it a Tiered Gatefold Card.

It doesn’t have to be this long, but it does show off those gorgeous papers perfectly.

This one folds flat and will fit into one of my 6 x 6 box envelopes here.
