How to:
Over towards the left side of a piece of white card measuring 3-5/8″ x 2.25″, stamp only the top part (approx 2-1/8″) of Tiny Townie Sammy. To do this, attach a post-it note to the bottom half of the stamp before inking it up. Once the stamp is inked, remove the post-it note and stamp as normal.

Stamp the sentiment to the side of the image.

Colour the image using your preferred medium.

Cut a piece of card measuring 2-7/8″ x 4″ and a piece of designer paper measuring 2.75″ x 3-7/8″ to mat the image. Adhere the pieces together and set to one side to work on the card base.

For the card base:

Cut one piece of card measuring 5.5″ x 8.5″ and score at 2-1/8″ and 4.25″ on the 8.5″ side.

Cut a piece of card measuring 3″ x 11″ and score at 4.25″ and 8.5″ on the 11″ side.

For the designer paper layers, cut –
4″ x 5.25″
1-7/8″ x 5.25″ (2x)
4″ x 2.75″
2.25″ x 2.75″
1.5″ x 2.75″

1-7/8″ x 2.75″

Fold the 8.5″ x 5.5″ piece of card on the 4.25″ score line. Fold the 2-1/8″ score line back.

Adhere the 4″ x 5.25″ piece of paper to the inside back.

Fold the 3″ x 11″ piece of card as shown, with the 4.25″ score line mountained and the 8.5″ valleyed.

On the centre section of the card base, apply adhesive to the bottom 3″ only. Take the 3″ x 11″ piece of card and adhere the 4.25″ end down onto the adhesive.

Adhere one of the 1-7/8″ x 5.25″ down, covering the bridging.

Fold back the first 2-1/8″ section and adhere the other 1-7/8″ x 5.25″ piece.

Open out the 3″ x 11″ piece and adhere the 4″ x 2.75″, 2.25″ x 2.75″, and 1-7/8″ x 2.75″ pieces of paper to the front.

To attach the image, fold up the card and apply adhesive to front of the 2.5″ x 3″ panel, leaving at least a 1/8″ border around the top, bottom and left side.

Adhere the image, centering it so that there is approx 1/16″ border around. Adhere the remaining 1.5″ x 2.75″ piece of designer paper to the back of the image panel.

Optional pocket:
Cut a piece of paper measuring 4.75″ x 1.75″. Score at 0.25″ on both ends of the 4.75″ side and the bottom. Fold in the score lines, apply adhesive to them and adhere the pocket down. This can be used for gift cards, tags or extra messages.
