Hi there! Thanks for your sweet note. It's funny -- I normally include a post for a direct link to my blog where I have the recipe for all my cards, but that particular card I made very quickly for a sample to show my mother-in-law. I'm glad you like it. It was very simple, and what I did was follow the sketch, which I found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d.php?t=212011
The trick is to decide how big your vertical image is going to be BEFORE you cut into the paper and just measure out a frame around that element around three sides (the fourth side is the fold of the card.) Use a hobby blade and a metal edged ruler to cut out the frame, leaving the side that is the fold alone. Score the fold and the element should be displayed above the "tent." This particular card was made with SU Elegant Eggplant paper and some dark green cardstock. The image is from All Year Cheer for the sentiment and the flower is from Botanical Blooms. I hope this makes sense. If not, please feel free to write me back! Have a great day.
