Double Z Fold Christmas Card

I saw this fun fold shown at a Docrafts demo recently and decided to give it a try at our Monday night craft meet; it's really easy and I'm sure you'll find a tutorial if you Google "double Z fold cards".
 I used cream pearl card to make the card base, and used Papermania Festive Fauna papers to cover all the panels.  I love these papers, a new addition to my stash, the colours are very neutral and soft and go very well with cream, grey and kraft.
The main topper was made with an Xcut die set and the largest die from my Spellbinders Adorning Circles set.  I used bits and bobs from my scrap box, including a piece of lovely stardust card, that has pearl flecks, for the background to the scene and the snowflakes.  The sentiment dies are also from Xcut, I cut the greeting in kraft card, and the running deer die I used on the small panel is from Marianne, it was also cut from kraft card.
The final touch was to add some iridescent gems to the middle of the snowflakes for a little touch of festive bling.
