Square K Card

Good morning everyone and what a lovely sunny day it is here on the south east coast!

I have had a little rummage in a box of old cards that I have got and have found a Square K Card that I did for Papercraft Inspirations (for either the January or February 2009 issue - I can't quite remember!!) using my Plum Blossom stamp sheet. So I hooked out my camera and have taken some photos of it so you can see what it looks like properly! (Normally I just scan the cards in as I find this so much quicker but for 3D cards this doesn't really work!

So as you can see the middle part of the card (the plum blossom flower) comes through the square aperture which was what I was trying to explain for the teddy card that I posted up the other day.
The 2nd picture shows the inside mechanism of the card. As you can see it is like a concertina effect so that the card when closed will lay flat to go in an envelope for posting. This is created with a WS Designs template which can be bought from The Stamp Man. There are other templates in the K Card range too which all operate in the same way. The Plum Blossom un-mounted stamp sheet is also available from The Stamp Man - as too are all my other designs.
As you can see I didn't bother decorating the inside of this card as it was not for a recipient. As this was a magazine card I cannot go into details as to how it was all created - for that information I'm afraid you will have to buy the back issue of the magazine!
If any of you out there have created any K Cards do post me a link as I would love to see what you have created with yours!
