13 Frights of Haloween 2023 No.8 - Floating screen card

Good morning,

I had a little break away in the caravan. Normally, I don't take my crafty bits with me when we go away but as I had a weekend alone, I hoped I could get this series of cards finished. 

This floating screen card has been on my To-do list for ages and this was the moment. Obviously being out of my craft room, I culdn't make a video and sadly the internet fluctuated too much to get the posts done. You may have noticed the photos on my Social Media accounts, so a huge thank you to everyone who liked or shared them for me. 

Here is the way I made my card:


Imperial & US



5 ¾ x 11

14.6 x 27.8

Centre Panel (to fit topper)

3 ¾ x 3 3/4

9.5 x 9.5


8 @ 5 3/8 x 1 7/8

8@ 4.5 x 14

White to write on

1 ¾ x 3 1/4

4 5 x 8

  1.  on the long side of base, score 2,4,4 ½” (5, 10, 11.5)
  2.   turn base through 180 degrees and score same again making base match exactly both sides.      
  3. with long side at top, place base in trimmer and cut down 1 ¼ at 2nd and 3rd score lines.
  4. turn card again through 180 degrees and repeat turn with narrow side of base along top and cut between the 2 score lines on both edges so base   resembles letter H.
  5. fold and burnish score lines as in overhead view.
  6. add DSP to panels
  7.  add topper to centre front - I rounded corners
  8.  adhere white card to centre back panel to write personal message

This card is suitable for many accasions so a useful one to master. The finished card will fit into a premade 6" envelope.
