Use the thick coloured paper, for example light blue, for the inside of the card by folding 3 times along the short side to make a Leporello fold for the card. For a two-tone effect, cut the dark brown paper (or a colour of your choice) for the front and back sides (see photo) in the corresponding size. Heavier paper works best for this. Next, glue the inside page securely on the front and back sides. Now you have a card with multiple pages inside.
Use the edding 1200 marker from the edding metallic colourpen range to design both the front and inside pages. You can choose from six different colours to write words or entire texts on the front in large or small lettering. To add a favourite song, our example shows “Cheek to Cheek” and it's easy to transfer the lyrics from our template onto the dark surface with the aid of light carbon copy paper and a pencil. Then simply trace over the letters with an edding 1200 metallic colourpen.
