I've made a card for my sister's birthday in January and I am sure she will be very surprised when she opens the envelope - there's no ink splashed around, no paint dolloped on and everything is very neat and tidy! I even kept my hands clean throughout the operation of making it! Both sides fold in and it ends up like a little book tied up with a ribbon.
I actually enjoyed making it but it was time consuming and I must admit that I don't always have enough patience to do fiddly bits. I think this sort of card will only be made for special occasions in future!
