How to:

Stamp Oddball Groom onto white card and cover with masking papers. Stamp Oddball Bride beside him just slightly overlapping.

Colour the image using your preferred medium, then fussy cut around the outline.

Cut a 4″ scalloped circle and a 3.75″ stitched circle from white card and a 3.5″ stitched circle from paper. Adhere them all together.

Adhere the image onto the circle panel with 3D foam tape/dots and set aside.

Cut 2 pieces of card measuring 5″ x 10″. Score one piece at 5″, score the other piece at 6″
Fold the piece with the 5″score line in half and crease with bone folder. On one end measure in 0.5″ from the edges, and 0.5″ and 2″ from the bottom.

Cut out the box to create the window.

Fold the other 10″ piece of card at the 6″ score line.

Apply adhesive to the outside of the first piece, up to the 5″ score line.

Adhere to the piece with the 6″ score line, on the 6″ section.

Fold the window section down, mark the outline of the window and cut away to create a window on the opposite end.

Cut a piece of card measuring 5″ wide x 6.5″ long and score at 0.5″ on the long side. Apply adhesive to the 0.5″ section and adhere to the back of the first window you created, lining it up with the 0.5″ border around the window as shown below.

Cut two pieces of paper measuring 4-7/8″ x 4-7/8″ for inside the card, and one piece measuring 5-7/8″ x 4-7/8″ for the card front. Use the card base as a guide for removing the window sections and adhere down.

If you find your sliding window is catching on the 0.5″ section adhere a strip of card each side as shown.

Fold the card closed and stamp the sentiment from Oddball Bride and Groom into the centre of the window.

Open the card up and stamp the sentiment from Melanie the Modern Bride into the centre of that window. As you open and close the card the sentiment changes.

Cut a 12″ x 5″ piece of card and fold in half. Apply adhesive to the back of the card front (the 6.5″ x 5″ piece) and adhere to the card base. Adhere the image on the front of the card, above the window, and embellish as desired.
