This card is very easy  to make. 

1. Cut cardstock 21cm x 14.5cm. Score in half at 10.5cm.

4. Cut 4 panels of plain card stock 4cm x 13.5cm

5. Adhere the patterned panels to the blank panels. 

6.  Cut panel in desired  cardstock for the front of your card 10cm x 14.5cm.
Also cut a strip of cardstock 5cm x 25cm. 

7. Fold the strip in half and then in half again to create a valley, mountain, valley as shown below. 

8. Turn strip over to reverse side and adhere d.s. tape to each of the outside folds as shown below. 

9. Turn back  to right side and adhere strips of d.s tape to the centres of each panel as shown below.  N.b. Do not adhere too near to the edges or it will show.
