Petite Petals Tunnel Card

We are in the deep freeze the last few days with sub-zero temperatures and LOTS of snow.   With the bitter cold outside it nice to have some pretty flowers inside!  
This is one of the cards from this weekends Stampin' Addicts blog hop.  (You can still do the hop.  Just click here to start hopping!)   The card base is a really easy-to-do tunnel that folds flat for mailing. I used the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper pack for the front which comes in 4-1/2" X 6-1/2" sheets.

To make the base card:
1.  Trim off 1/4" inch a Fresh Prints paper to make it 4-1/4" X 6-1/2".  (Or start with a 4-1/4" X 6-1/2" piece of your favorite DSP)
2.  Score 1/2", 1" and 1-1/2" from one end.  Fold with mountain, valley, mountain folds.
3.  Center Circle #5 Framelit (counting from smallest to largest) on the card front and run through the Big Shot.
4.  Using Crumb Cake cardstock, make the back just like the front omitting the circle cutout.
5.  Apply adhesive to the end sections and adhere the two pieces together.
