When you see a box on this blog, you know the card is going to be a bit different.
When you open the box, all you can see at first sight is the front of the card.
"Standing in a square"
You need to open it right out for the full effect.
"Side 1 flat"
Each panel is cut with an ornamental die, and the bottom cut flat to allow the card to stand up properly.
"Side 1 standing"
I know that my neighbour likes to set her cards in the window with the good side looking out at the passers by.
I thought it would be good to make her a card with two pretty sides, so she would still have something to look at on the inside. The blank panel is to write on.
