(1x) 2″ x 5.5″ (back centre panel)

Score the card base on the long side at 1″, 2″, 3″, 5.25″, 6.25″, and 7.25″
On each of the score lines, measure and mark at 1″ and 2″ – top and bottom.
On the 1″ marks, cut across from the 1″ score line to the 3″ score line, and from the 5.25″ to the 7.25″ score lines. Repeat at the 2″ mark.
Fold back the outer 1″ sections and burnish with a bone folder.
To fold the scored/cut sections start at the top and mountain fold, then valley fold the next one, then mountain, valley and finally mountain. Try not to fold the inner score line on the valley fold sections.
Repeat on both sides.
Adhere the card layers…front.
… and back.
Adhere down the paper layers. The centre section at the back is for writing a greeting, there is no paper layer.
Cut the image out using a stitched circle die. Cut a larger stitched circle from pink card and then a larger scalloped circle from white card. Adhere them together.
Also adhere the paper layers to the 3″ squares.
Turn the square at an angle, line up the side points to the top edges of the centre middle section, and adhere down. Repeat with the second diamond, lining the side points up with the bottom of the middle front section.
Stamp the sentiment onto a strip on white card and cut out using a ribbon label die. If you don’t have a die, fishtail the ends of a 0.75″ x 3.75″ strip of card with a scissors.
Adhere the sentiment to the bottom front section.
