DIRECTIONS: Refer to photo.

  1. Cut 7-1/4"x5-1/2" for card panel; 1-3/4"x2-1/2" for small panel. Cut mats slightly larger than small panel & photo.
  2. Place large cardstock panel face-down, horizontally. Measure over from the left edge, 2-7/8" and 4-3/8". Make tick marks top and bottom. Draw 2 vertical lines from top to bottom.
  3. Measure down 1" and 4" from the top of the card. Draw 2 horizontal lines from left to right in a tic-tac-toe pattern. Mark dots on the right vertical line at top, bottom & where the horizontal lines intersect.
  4. Draw 2 more vertical lines 1-3/4" and 5-1/2" from the left edge, starting and stopping at the top and bottom horizontal lines. At this point the grid resembles a window with shutters.
  5. Use the craft knife and ruler, on a cutting mat to cut around the top, left & bottom of the left rectangle. Cut around the top, right & bottom of the right rectangle to create shutters that open and close.
  6. Valley score the upper and lower parts (not the center) of the left vertical line. Fold and crease the scores. Open the card & make small pushpin holes through the 4 dots on the wrong side. Flip the card over & Mountain score the upper and lower parts of the right vertical line, using the pierced holes to align the ruler. Fold & crease the scores. Erase all pencil lines.
  7. Push the sides of the card together to close. The small panel is near the right edge of the card. Write the message on the cut small panel. Mount it on the small mat and attach it to the card.
  8. Cut heart from fabric. Stitch around edges, if desired and glue to larger swivel panel. Print sentiment on smaller swivel panel. Ink panel edges. Mat both on patterned paper; glue to swivel panel.
  9. Cut narrow panel for left edge of card. Ink and attach. Trim edges.
