U Fold Box Cards

I made these unique card folds for the challenge with the Canadian Die Exchange group.  I have never made one of these before so I used the video tutorial here

This card has what looks like a table in the middle, but it is actually a flap that folds up to allow the card to fold flat.


The base of this card is Sahara Sand.  The panels are lined with a retired DSP.
A double layer of doillies is added to the center flap that looks like a table but folds up allowing the card to fold flat,
Some tiny pink roses are added to the sentiment panel and cascades down the front.
The mirrors are made by die cutting silver foil paper using the stitched framelits and matting them with Sahara Sand cardstock.
The feet of the dresser were made using he Lots of Labels framelits.

Below is another one I made using a Halloween theme



Side View


Center flap up and card folded flat.

The card base is Basic Black, and on the various panels retired DSP (Halloween) was added. 
One of the colours is very similar to the new Lemon Lime Twist.

This fold has a flap in the center that opens and closes.  I added a spider web doillie to the top of the DSP on that flap and at the base of the flap is a pumpkin which was cut out and adhered to an oval stitched framelit.  A scary ghost is adhered hovering above it.

On the left panel is a scare crow coloured with copic markers, cut out and adhered with dimensionals, to a Whisper White stitched oval matted with a slightly larger black oval. The Whisper White oval was stamped with the Timeless Texture "dot" stamp.

On the right side a sheath of wheat was also colored, and die cut with the oval stitched framelit.  Again some background dots were stamped.
