Today’s handmade card has been created for inspiration on the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Monthly Challenge Blog.

For my card I have used one of their digital images called Big Pumpkin.

Cut a square from white paper measuring 19 cms by 19 cms.

Cut around the image leaving a small white border.
Cut a piece of white card measuring 12 cms by 5 cms.
Then score and fold at 1.5 cms and 3 cms each end.
Attach the 1.5 cms edges to the card base.
Then add the image to the front fold.
This will then allow the image to fold flat to fit into an envelope but pop up when sat on a shelve.

Layer three:
From the plain coloured paper cut out two matt layers for two sentiments.
Matt and layer together and attach to the card base using foam pads.

To finish add an insert to the inside of the card base.
