A photo card - congratulations Cathy!

I love getting cards with photos!  Great at the holidays but also nice to send as a Congratulations.

This one is of my team mate Cathy celebrating a Silver Milestone at a Stampin Up Convention (sorry Cathy to get this to you so late!).

Easy to make. 

Take a base card (the full 8 1/2 x 5 1/2) and trim 1/2 off the back edge of the card so your base is now 8 x 5 1/2, and decorate the front.  My base had "Hooray" on the front.  

Now take another whisper white for inside the card (to hold the photo) 8 ½ x 5 ½ and add some score lines so you have 3 scores:  ½, 4 ¼ and 4 ¾ 

Cut out a frame, I did a square for a photo but you could do a circle or an oval.  Or for a larger photo the Barn Door die set for a rectangle

I used the stitched shapes and my Big Shot.  Now stamp on the front. Then create the box.  See lower right photo.  

Insert photo.  Or you could stamp inside if you prefer.  Here's the card standing up with the photo inside.

Adhere to the first base card.  Line up the very edge of the back of the base card right into the fold of the card – adhere this down to the back of the base card.  Try this first without adhesive, so you can see it work.  Now adhere the ½” edge flap into the fold of the decorated card.  So now it will open and pop out.   

Really easy and I hope has a "wow" factor. We did this card (both horizontal and vertical) as my fun folds class last week.

Join us either Aug 25 or Aug 27 for classes (click on the workshops/event tabs for details).

Happy celebrating! MaryKate
