Christmas Tri Fold Mini Album

Hi everyone, today I have a Christmas tri fold mini album I made with the new stamps, dies, and paper from Heartfelt Creations.
For the cover I used the tree die, I embossed and shaded the embossed area with distress ink.
This is the back panel of the book.
Here is the three inside panels, they make tree pockets with inserts.
Closeup of the panels.
Here you can see the outside of the panels, front, back and the panel that folds over.
This diagram shows how I folded and were I cut, fold lines are the doted lines, cut lines are the two solid lines.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
