    I just love this card and would very much like to make one. Is it possible to get the measurements from you or maybe a template? It would be greatly appreciated. I think it’s absolutely gorgeous.


    • Hi Sharon,

      Thank you for the lovely comment. To make this card start with a 12 x 6 piece of card stock. Scor at the 2 1/2″ mark down 2 inches. Next scor at the 4 1/2″ mark down 4 inches. Next, flip the card stock over and scor at the 6 1/2″ mark down 4 inches and finally scor at the 8 1/2″ mark down 2 inches. The last scor will be the full 6″ at the 10 1/2″ mark and another scor line about 1/8″ to the right of your lst line to allow the card to fold. You will then need to do 2 cuts, starting at the bottom of the 2 1/2″ scor line across to the 6 1/2″ scor line and another one from the bottom of the 4 1/2″ line to the 8 1/2″ line. Finally you will need to attach a 6″ x 5 1/2″ piece of card stock to the right of the card for the front.

      Here is a template (not to scale) so you can see what I am trying to explain.

      Hope this helps!


  6. Just found your blog from this card at Heart Felt Creations. This is stunning. Thank you so much for the instructions. I’m hoping to make this for my Christmas card. Need to start soon if so.
