Supplies needed:

  • One piece of cardstock 4″ x 11″ long (here Cool Caribbean)
  • Paper cutter with cutting and scoring blade
  • adhesive
  • stamps
  • ink
  • punch to make window (here 1 3/8″ square punch)
  • slit punch
  • ribbon


Step one:

Score your cardstock at 3 1/2″ and 7″.


Step two:

Prefold your scores.


Step three:

Slide a punch of your choice into your center panel and punch a window in the center of that panel.


Step four:

Stamp your center panel.


Step five:

Add additional framing around your window if wanted.

To make this frame, I first used the same square punch I used to make the window in the card front on black cardstock. Then I lined my Marvy scallop punch up around the punched out square and punched out the frame.


Step six:

Stamp your center image and layer if necessary.


Step seven:

Add adhesive on the back of your main image.


Step eight:

While holding your card and your main image, center the image behind your window.


Step ten:

When the image is centered, fold your right card panel over to adhere the image to that part of the card.


Step eleven:

Fold your left card panel over. Slide your slit punch in so that the half circle is a little under the card fold. Punch your slit.


Step twelve:

The half circle of the slit punch will keep your card closed.


Step twelve:

If you would like to add ribbon, punch a hole in the half circle of your slit punch. Just make sure the hole is not hitting your fold over card.


Step thirteen:

Thread your ribbon through the hole and tie a bow. You are done!

Have fun with it! Play around. Add a second slit punch on the top. Just tie ribbon through the hole and not around the card. Change the measurements…..Anything goes. These are so much fun!

  6. Very nice tutorial .. have to try this one out … I just have one question … how do you tie the ribbon ? Through the slit and around the card? I can’t figure it out from the photos. Thanks.

  7. Gloria, yes! Thread the ribbon through the hole and wrap around the entire card. You don’t have to though. You could just tie the ribbon on flap if wanted. Or you could leave it off completely. It’s up to you. The ribobn is just decoration for the card.

  10. It’s a sad day when a person can’t even look at pictures and do a card. I am sooooooooo directionally impaired. I love this card. When you untie the ribbon, this card opens? Is that correct? And I would have a sentiment inside just like in any other card. Is this right? Thanks for your patience.
