The Card She Never Made Before. How Did She Do It?

Hello fellow crafters.
Here it is as promised. The card I never made before. I know the reason why. I like to eyeball measure things rather than deal with fractions. LOL.  This is my first step card. But I'm learning how to use my Martha Stewart Score Board. Okay, here are the measurements for those who care to try this. The card base is 5"x10.50" Score along the long side. 1.25",2.25",4.25",6", and 8.25" . Start by  Mountain folding the 8.25" score lines and accordion fold from there.
Below you can see here how these look like steps.  I needed a higher background canvas for my card since I was working with smaller pieces and I wanted the background to be a vocal point.  I used color paper here to show more clearly how it was layered on the rear mountain fold. It was cut at 5.5 x 3.5 inches.  I then cut a layer size for it 5.25 x 3.25 inches.
  Here you can see how it is layered on the back mountain fold. Next I cut strips for the front panels.  I wanted to have a boarder around the strips. The front strip was cut at 4.75" x 1 inch.  The second was cut at 4.75" x 1.5"
This will fit in an A2 envelope when folded. Here it is folded closed and open to display I like that you can see the cascading shadows behind the characters.
Follow me on my creative journey as I share what I learn along the way. Thanks for your comments I love hearing from you.
