A Great Way To Showcase Your Photos On Your Cards

 Last week on the PaperWishers forum a friend posted some bay window cards. I had never seen the technique before so I had to give it a try.  I thought they looked like they might be a perfect match for my photos and I was right!

After the first one, I was hooked.  I have lots and lots of pictures of  birds so I'll be reusing this sentiment. The feathers are from a download from 88 and Clear.

Part of the fun is coming up with sentiments to go with the pictures.

This one is from our trip to Hawaii

These cards were super easy to make and are A2 size (4.25" x 5.5").  I got measurements that work perfectly for 4x6 photos from Rachel Tessmans' YouTube tutorial here: (5) Bay Window Fold Card - YouTube

In Rachel's instructions the panels are 4 1/8" tall but 4" works just as well.

Watch Rachel's tutorial for the instructions but here are the measurements.

  • Score a 4 1/4" x 11" card on the long edge at:
    • 3/8"
    • 1 7/8"
    • 3"
    • 5 1/8"
    • 5 1/2"
  • Cut your 4" x 6" photo into panels from left to right as follows:
    • Panel 1: 1 3/8" 
    • Panel 2: 1 5/8"
    • Panel 3: 1 3/8"
    • Panel 4: 1 5/8"
