- Trim the backing paper to measure 10.5x9cm and tear the top border.
- Cut a piece of vellum, measuring 10.5x3cm, tear the top edge and attach to the rear of the backing paper at the top
- Cut a second piece of vellum, measuring 12x7cm, tear the top edge and wrap around the base of the design paper, securing at the back
- Add twine to the bottom of the design paper, securing at the back
- Create a white card blank, the fold at the top measuring 10.5x12cm.
- Attach the backing paper to the base of the card
