There is yet hope for me...lol

The finished size of this card is, 14 cm x 13 cm. Please Note: All the stamping is done with the gold embossing powder. To make the tunnel base cut 4 x 12.7 cm x 12.7 cm (5" x 5") Cut frame openings on each frame. 1st Base layer leave as is, the 2nd frame 1.6 cm (5 / 8") sides. 3rd frame, 2.2 cm (7 / 8") sides and 4th frame, 3.2 cm (1 1/4") sides. For the accordion sides cut, 12.7 cm x 9.1 cm (5" x 3 1 /2") Make hill and valley folds by folding every 1.3 cm (1 / 2") which forms the accordion sides for the frames to be slotted into. Stamp, color and die cut all the images from the sets. Arrange and adhere in place across the frame openings. Take the time to make sure all the details can be seen. It is worth the extra time to enable to display all your work in 3d. Apply gesso to soften the brown and distress the cardstock. Adhere the frames slotted into the accordion sides, first one side then the other. This card is 3d but yet will fall flat when sending by post…very handy.
An extra tip: You could always add a few flowers to the Card out side you find it too simple. But I wanted to be able to send this in a envelope and not in a box. Remember this can be sent flat....something very different for me!
