Happy Holidays Double Z-Fold Christmas Card

Created this Christmas card using Mark's Finest Double Z-Fold Card tutorial and MFP stamps. I used a red & green color scheme. Base is green. Decided to use red panels on inside since the belly band was to be red. Decorated inside panels with vellum embossed with snowflakes. The belly band is red tissue wrapped around red cardstock with a ribbon attached.

Supplies List 

embossing: Cuttlebug Winter Borders embossing border - snowflakes
inks:  VersaFine Onyx Black
machine: Sizzix BIGkick
paper:  red tissue, vellum, cardstock - green, red, white - all scraps used except for green

ribbon: Craft Narrows Ribbon Bow-tique 
stamp: Mark's Finest Papers Winter Scenes
