The ready top-fold card from white card stock measures 7" by 7?. To create the top panel, choose 6" by 6" card panel from the paper collection and glue it on a white cardstock measuring 1/16" larger on all the 4 sides. Using Cut Mat and Create 2A die, cut a window in the center. Adhere acetate sheet to create a clear window. Stamp the sentiment with blue ink on the back panel of the clear window. Layer the panel on blue cardstock measuring 6 1/2" by 6 1/2". Layer the complete panel on the card base.
