It isn't a card. It is an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of cardstock. It took me about 10 hours to complete. Totally worth it I think. It is very cool in person. I cut out the holes for the Iris fold templates and then tore paper for the sky, water, and sand. Then I flipped it over and started folding. The fish and green part of the palm tree were the hardest parts because my fat little fingers had a hard time folding paper that small. I am going to frame it and give it to my dad. I love the result but I don't know if I will do another one of these for a while.
