May and June for me are definite card making months. There is my father's birthday, husband's birthday, my daughter's birthday, my son's birthday, and Father's day. I had come across this card design in the past, but have never attempted to make it, thinking it would be a good card to make during this time. I decided to make it for my daughter's birthday.
Ingredients for this card:
4.5 x 9 inch piece of cardstock for the base of the card
4.25x4.25 piece of cardstock in a coordinating color
4.25x4.25 piece of double sided cardstock
2x2 inch piece of cardstock
Assorted stamps and embellishments
Place your 4.25x4,25 piece of double sided cardstock on your scoring tool diagonally. The points will line up at the 3 inch marks. Score at the 1 inch and 1.5 inch groves. Turn cardstock to score each corner.
Your scored piece of cardstock will look like this
Fold the 1.5 inch score lines in and the 1 inch score lines back. Your cardstock now makes a small frame.

Round the corners of your 4.24x4.25 piece of cardstock.
Stamp a message or embellish the 2x2 piece of cardstock for the center of the frame.
