How to Make It
Download our template, and print onto slightly heavy 8 1/2-by-11-inch paper (look for a paper that coordinates with a 5 Baronial [4 1/8-by-5 1/2-inch] envelope). We have three designs; use any or all of them. 

Frame 1
Frame 2
Frame 3

Use photo-editing software to crop and resize your photograph into a 2 1/4-by-3 1/4-inch image, and print out.

Use a bone folder and a metal ruler to score across the card at the fold marks, aligning ruler with the dashed lines. Then use a craft knife and the ruler to cut across the paper at the solid crop marks.

Slip the top edge of the paper into an extra-large oval craft punch (2 1/2 inches or 72 mm high), and center the design (turn the punch upside down so you can see how the design aligns with the hole of the punch), and punch out the opening.

Adhere photo from behind using a glue stick. Fold the right flap back to cover the photo, and glue in place. This will create a single-fold card.
