Summer Silhouettes Screen Card

I have seen so many pretty "Screen Cards" and I finally got around to making one for my August Stamp Class.  They are really easy to make, and I have to say thank you to all of the talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who shared their creativity and dimensions.  I took my inspiration from them, and created my first screen card that I wanted to share with you.
The dimensions I used are:
1.  Start with a piece of Card Stock measuring 5 1/2" x 11"
2.  On the long side score your Card Stock at 2 3/4", 5 1/2", 8 1/4"
3.  Fold your Card Stock on the score lines to create your panel.
4.  For the legs - take your Decorative Label Punch and center in between each panel and punch.
5.  For the top - take your Scallop Edge Border Punch and punch along the whole top.
6.  Decorate your panels using the dimensions:  2 1/2" x 4 1/4" and 2 1/4" x 4"
I try to use sentiments that have finished sayings.  I also left some room in the last panel for a place to sign my name.
Now, you can decorate your panels any way you wish, use Designer Series Paper instead of Card Stock, or also add a another panel to the outer front panel and fold accordingly. 
The card will fit into a standard envelope which will be slightly larger in width, or you can make your own envelope with the Envelope Punch Board.  I opted to use a regular envelope so I could use standard postage. 

The following were used:
