Measurements for my Fancy Fold card

Thank you for the lovely comments on this card, on the actual post itself. I have had two emails about the measurements and sizes of the card, so in case anyone else is interested..........

I had found a template for this shape but for whatever reason my folds didn't seem to be in the right place and my card looked after a bit of trial, error and a few sheets of A4 screwed up in rage, lol, I finally managed to make it work using my own sizes. I have attached a photo of the card laid flat with relevant measurements of horizontal length and vertical height. The matting and layering inside of the card was pretty much measured by eye.

I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the edge of the front panel. It had been my intention to go all the way up with the punch but I found when it levelled off on the back panel it just didn't look right. Can't remember the "name" of the punch as I've had it for ages, but I thought it worked well on this card as the pattern isn't too deep.
Any questions, please feel free to ask xx
