This is truly a magic card; well, at least to me. I had a hard time mailing this birthday card off to my grandson because I was having so much fun playing with it. It looks so complicated, but I couldn't believe how easy it was to make. Another thing I liked about it is that it feels substantial and the panels lay flat so nicely.
The base will take you less than 5 minutes to make. However, depending upon what you do for the panels you'll be adding quite some time to that.
The base of the card is made with four 3"x6" pieces of cardstock. For this card, I used 6 of the large squares. Normally there would be eight, but I wanted to do the wording on pages 3 and 4 to be separate from the center photo. If you use 8, you'd need to realize that the top and bottom half of the page 3 squares will also show 4th page. Then, there are 24 of the very small ones. Again, there are places where these small ones could be replaced with the rectangular pieces. You'll be able to decide that as you start adding your panels.
And, finally, I made an envelope that I customized from the digi paper. The pattern for the envelope is from SVG Cuts, and I cut it using my Sizzix Eclips 2 electronic cutting machine.
To Infinity and Beyond!
