Assembly of Virtual Open House Kit
If you purchased a Virtual Open House Kit, follow along with these instruction to assemble your card.

  1. Use your handy- dandy scoring tool to score your card base 2¾” from each end and fold ends in to create your card.
  2. Apply double sided tape or craft glue to the back of the Gold Mirror panels and attach to the front panels of the card base.
  3. Next, apply double sided tape or craft glue to the embossed panels, then place these embossed panels on top of the gold mirrored panels on the front of the card.
  4. To create the Belly Band base, wrap the Cream Cardstock strip around the card and fold so that the ends of the strip  meet in the middle of the card. Attach the ends of the strip together using double sided tape or a small amount of craft glue. Do not attach the Belly Band to the card base. Be sure that the ends of the strip are secured snug enough so that it stays on the card, but loose enough that it can be easily slipped off to view the interior of the card.
  5. Decorate the Belly Band using a 3D topper and Gold Border stickers.
  6. Slip the Belly Band over the top of the card.

Your card is complete!
