  3. Stamp images on top as desired.

Finishing Touches

  1. Fold card base in half. To create a z-fold, fold front panel back at half way point.

  3. Attach inside panels together and attach to inside of card.
  4. Using inside as a guide, attach front panel using SNAIL. Be sure to avoid putting it on the portion that will overlap the inside piece.
