  • Cut base cards stock 28cm x 16cm

  • Score at 7cm, 14cm and 21cm (ie 7cm increments

 Fold using Valley and mountain technique (i.e. back and forward)

Base card is now complete.


  • Cut 4 mats 6.5cm x 15.5cm in plain colour that compliments the base card stock

  • Apply double sided Tape as shown

  • Adhere to folded panels of card stock ensuring that a gap is left at the folds.

Now to Make the stand
  • Measure and mark the centre of each panel at the base. 3.5cm
  • Using the Decorative labels punch, punch half way into the punch aligning the centre of the punch to the centre mark.
  • Repeat on the bases of all 4 panels

Top decorative border:

  • Measure the centres of each panel and dot at 3.5cm
  • Insert each panel into the punch centring the punch
Mark the centre of the punch on the front base and align up the dots and slide in.

  • Punch all 4 of the top panels in this way.

Matting 2

  • Cut 2 patterned papers 6cm x 10cm.
  • I have selected 2 panels to mat.

  • Round the edges of the mats. This gives a neater finish.

  • Adhere mats to the 2 alternating panels.

Make sure your patterns on the papers follow the same direction


  • Using your chosen sentiment stamp onto plain co-ordinating paper.
  • If you have experience with embossing this is a nice effect.
  • Cut to size and then mat onto same colour card stock as base card.
  • Cut to size.

  • Adhere to front panel

  • Using the ready made flowers and some bling dots, embellish the front of the card.
  • Add a flower to the top of the patterned panels

I have left 1 panel plain. This is for writing your personal message. I will be adding a number on this panel with my message.
