A Double Gate Fold Card Or "A Card of Many folds!

The band holding my card in a fold.
The outside panels!
The left inside panel.
The right inside panel.
The marshmallow has Stickles on the edge to make it sparkle!
Lots of fussy cutting and some puffy paint.

All panels work together to create a scene.

I must say that I had a good time making this card but my goodness I need a refresher class in geometry! I don't know how many times I cut my paper with the wrong angle. I fussy cut all of the cute Christmas stamps from THE PAPER SHELTER  and placed them carefully on each panel. I do wish I had used a less busy print, but at this point I was happy to just have it facing the correct direction! I am the first to admit I am not adept at making shaped and gimmick cards. This was good practice for me. I created a belly band to hold my folds in place.
Our challenge this time at THE PAPER SHELTER IS   "A Card of Many Folds". I would love to see your cards and if any of you have any tips for me that would help in designing this type of card. I am glad you can't see the back as one of my panels the paper is upside down! 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: Ho, Ho, Dear old Santa Clause
I hear your bells And I hear your deer
I can hear you saying your ho ho ho
So I know what's coming
Right now
Cause I can hear
Dear Santa Claus
With you big sack of toys
And the teddy bears for the little ones
And the rollerskates for the older ones
Yes I can hear you
Dear old Santa Claus
