To make this fairly thick 3d fit into a regular aperture card, second fold lines need to be scored a few mm away from the existing ones to make a thin "box" enclosure.
This will work with any shapes as long as you have punches or dies in several sizes.

As I was using left-overs, the colours were a bit um....yes, well......, so after I scanned the card I converted it to black and white and the "colourised it" with Elements.

The supports (actually I don't know what the long skinny bits are called but this will do) were coloured with a gold pen.
Finally I cut out the "in-between" bits at the bottom. I'd like to experiment a bit more with colouring using embossing powders so there may be some multi-coloured efforts coming up in the future.

(I believe the coypright should have expired by now). I resized this image and printed it onto a textured singlefold ivory card. You can't really see the texture in the picture but it really adds to the overall effect. I added a little version to the back and as strip of Japanese paper inside. Best of all there are lots more pictures left to play with!!
