Here is the directions for the card. I am getting many request so will post here. Thanks everyone for the compliments on it.
You need 1/2 sheet of colored cs, 1/2 sheet of white cs, the white you will need to trim off 1/4 inch on one side and the bottom or top what ever. Scraps of black.
Now working on the white cs for now. You need to score in 2 inches on both ends. Then fold them inward. Next, fold in the opposite direction until ends meet. You will end up with a valley, mountain, valley fold when opened. Lay out flat and stamp your image on the mountain fold, center this as best as you can. Next, you will need to use exacto knife and cut this out larger than the image as you will trim this down so it shows better when attached to the inside of the card. Now color in image. With the tunnel part of the card stamp around on it as desired leaving a space on the bottom for a message.
With your colored cs fold in half like a normal card would be. Unfold and put your cutout image that has been colored and trimmed to the center of the card. You will want to line up the folds and be about 1/2 inch down so it shows thru the window. Now with the inside white cs folded together add adhesive to back on one side line up to edge of colored cs. Do the same on the other side and then fold colored cs over so it attaches. This way your inside edges don't show on the outside when folded.
Stamp and decorate the front as desired.
I can't wait to see what you girls come up with so please share when done. I also made a halloween one for my kids.
