Using a ruler, measure 1.5″ down on one end of the 5.75″ side and mark with a pencil.

Position the card in your trimmer to that it cuts from the 2.75″ scoreline, diagonally, to the 1.5″ pencil mark. (not the best angle to get a photo)

This is how it should look. Repeat on the second piece of 11″ x 5.75″ card.

To hold the card in place, I applied a small strip of double sided tape to the centre of the front panels. This is not compulsory, I just found it held the card closed and made positioning the image easier.

    What a pretty card and i like how it’s folded. Does it cost more to mail this card? It looks a little hard to make for me but I will study it and see. Maybe I can actually make one! If I do, I will make sue I let you guys see it.
