Frame Card Tutorial!

Hi everyone! Thanks again to all of you who took part last week!
The winner of the playmates from SkattyKats (drawn at random using Frances
so congrats to you! Please email me with your postal address so we can send them off to you asap! (Link on right!)
This weeks challenge is our first one from Claudia! It's a great idea and the cards look fab! Thanks Claudia!
Here's the tutorial and the fantastic cards from the design team!

First cut your CS to 6x12 (if you have to make a perfectly square card) as i did 6x11 piece ands score in half
Draw a square with a pencil (you will need to erase later the lines) onto the front of your card. It is up to you how big you want the window to be. (you can use as help a post-it note as a guide)

Draw a second frame with your pencil inside your big frame (i have found that 0.5 cm smaller is the best) cause the wider you will make the frame the wider it will stick out to the inside of your card. Crease along the pencil lines with your bonefolder
Draw diagonals or use your ruler and cut the cs along the diagonals the cs open- like on picture seen
Fold your cs along the scored lines like you see in the picture.

Cut your white CS you want to stamp on to fit inside the opening you have determined at the beginning and slide it into your frame. Adhere. This is how the back is going to look like.
make a nice cover for the back. I used a layer bashful blue and one layer in brown to hide the back.

This tutorial is for Papertake weekly challenge blog. Have fun.
