Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Multifold Cards

This week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge theme has been set by Christine...and she has chosen:

'Multifold Cards'

I decided to try something new, and have made a side-step card. I couldn't find any instructions with the right dimensions to fit the images I wanted to use...so had to experiment a little...and managed to come up with this made from an A4 sheet of card.

I've used all Penny Black hedgehogs...the main image is 'Party Pooped', and the smaller images and sentiment are from the 'Wonderful' set. I watercoloured them to match the Papermania 'Sweet Nothings' papers, and added some lettering cut using the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet.
Here's a view from the side showing the different 'steps':

The rest of the design team have pulled out all the stops this week...you can see their cards on the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge blog.
