Great tutorial. TFS

I know that the card base is 4-1/4" x 11" (it's in the written instructions) but the video says 4" x 11". You may want to add a note to mention that.

Love it. Such a pretty card.
I also love how your voice sounds so pleased when things go just so. It made me smile as I know we all talk to ourselves as we bring our creations together.
Fun card and fun video. Thank you Wendy

Love this idea. Quick question. The written directions say the base is 4 1/4 X 11 But in the video, you say 4 X 11. Just wondering which it is

I did mine 4-1/4" wide, and that works nicely to give the inner card a border all the way around. If you cut it to 4" it will be fine too.

Great card! I wish the written instructions had all of the inside dimensions also. I totally copied it and now I'm going to try it with the celebrate sunflowers bundle.

I really like this card fold. I usually use the written directions, but in this case they don't match the video and are completely confusing since a step seems to have been left out. A correction would be much appreciated.
