|here's the front|
|And the inside|
Cute cute cute. Now I just used some green card stock from Joann's cut 8 1/2 x 5.5 and then the mat was early espresso. The card is a regular 4.25 x 5.5 size. The mat could have been made bigger but I was layering with a piece of handmade watercolor background paper and I didn't have huge pieces left. A brown sheer ribbon and some twine finished off the card front. Inside you have a separate piece of card stock that was accordion folded and glued inside the card. 7 pieces of espresso were cute into 2" squares and layered with 1.75" watercolored paper. I just did random stamping using "Measure of the life" stamp set and some misc. word stamps for Happy Birthday and Just for you. I'll upload a top over view so you can see how to adhere these squares. Below is your template....actually super simple.
I bet this would look really cute as a Christmas card! Think I'll try that next. I also think this card fold needs a name besides swap card. Any ideas?? Maybe it should be called "Mariiam's" fold? I've tried contacting her but her profile says there hasn't been any activity since 2006. So we'll see if she ever gets back to me.
And here is a top overview of the inside.
