Begin by using the Castle Folding Card, cutting out the main part with the window section twice. Cut one down the center as shown above.
Line up the sections of the castle and glue together. Stamp some bricks using the stamp from the Prince & Frog Sentiments. Add some color, I used Watering Can Archival Ink and a blending brush.
Back the windows with the color of your choice, assemble the Prince and Princess and then add the photo frame from the Planner Essentials 3.
Crease the castle on each side, shown with the red arrows above.
When adding the backing for the frame – leave an open space just above the word PHOTO, shown with the white arrow above. This way the photos can be easily changed by sliding them into the opening.
For the base, simply cover a piece of chipboard with paper. In the photo above you will see that I marked where I wanted to place my castle and frame.
To make the frame stand up – cut 2 strips of cardstock 1″ X 5″ and crease ever inch. Fold on the creases and then glue together to form a box. Glue box at each end of the castle and then glue to base at an angle. This will keep the castle from falling over. Another piece of cardstock was added to the center section to help hold in place.
All that is left is to add the photo of your choice. A little crown was added to the photo just for fun.

Hello everyone, it´s Sanna Lippert here again today with another guest design team project share. For my September project I created a fun and a super fast to make card. This card can be finished in under ten minutes.
Here is how to make the card:
Step 1: Take a green plain or polka dotted paper and attach Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back. Now take the legs from the Frog die and die cut 11 paires (for this card size) of legs. The adhesive on the back makes the adhering process very fast. Step 2: Arrange the legs onto a ivory toned card base in rows of threes. Step 3: Remove the adhesive backing and adhere the legs on place. Step 4: Take a Dymo and type on black tape the sentence “break a leg”. Adhere on the card. Step 5: Decorate with black liquid pearls, let dry and the card is done.
I´ve also recorded a short video to show you how fast such a card can be done. I hope you like the idea!!
See you again with another card project idea next month. Until then, Happy crafting, xxx, Sanna
