A fancy fold card.....

Yay!  Had time for another challenge this week, so I hopped on over to Stampin' up! only challenge this week and found it to be a fancy fold - so I went to my fave fold!  Double Z fold card.

Here is a close up of the reindeer charm (it came from a set of wine charms that went on clearance last year from the cheap shop, 6 charms for a dollar - bargain)

The fancy fold card with the belly band - Usually the belly band is in the middle, but I wanted to change it up a bit so made the belly band a lot lower for this card.

 This is what the card looks like opened:

And here is the belly band on its own - I am so very happy with how it turned out.
You can find the tutorial for this double z fold card on Splitcoast stampers.
