Using a bone folder create a fold in the laminated sheet. Fold in half. Apply tape to the coloured image and attach to the base of the laminated A4 sheet. Turn to the inside of the card and use a matching fussy cut white strip to cover the image stuck to the front of the card. Thus hiding the tape, and aligning to the stamped topper.

With the card still open place a second fussy cut strip on top of the above white card. Attached tape and remove backing. Relay on the plain white card, sticky side up, matching fussy cutting and bring down the back of card and press. You should now have a matching plain white strip stuck to the inside cover where you would write your greeting. Turn card to the front and close. All the card should be lined up, matching perfectly. Repeat the above with the last piece of plain card and attach to the outside back. You should now have a card which will stand nicely and all the card should be aligned.

Using tape adhere your sentiment to the front of your card. Adhere the plain rectangle to the inside of the card, matching that of the greeting.
