Celebrate Wildly...

 An unassuming front opens into something a little more fun...
making the inside piece is actually easy - use the photo below as a visual guide...

  • Fold CS a little smaller than an A2 card and fold back both flaps so the edges meet the center fold making an "M" fold  This makes your inner pop-out.
  • Open the side panels back up and then, along the fold, punch a shape - any one will do - a heart, circle, square, etc  Make sure  the fold is cut when you punch... see my sample - I used a heart shape..
  • For your base card, in this case an A2 size card, add DP as desired and then glue or tape down the flaps of the "M" shaped inner CS - center it - and be careful to check that it does not show outside the A2 card when it is closed.
  • Decorate as you like... you can put things inside the window or hang things from the top of the window.
