Trophy card tutorial!

Looking through my card templates, I found the trophy card again and fell in love with it again. I've used it in the past for invitations, for displaying on a desk, etc.
Here it is standing up.
 Here it is closed and flat.
You will need:
4-1/4" X 11" Pumpkin Pie (scored at 1", 2-3/4", 3-3/4", 5-1/2", 7-1/4", 8-1/4" and 10")
5-1/2" X 2-3/4" Pacific Point (for the background)
5-1/4" X 2-1/2"Whisper White ( for the stamped image)
Stamp the image on the Whisper White focusing on the top part of the paper since the bottom of it will not show when the cards is standing up.
Mount it on the Pacific Point cardstock for the background.
Cut on the 5-1/2" fold in the middle a 1/2" from each side to create a SLOT, and decorate the base as desired.  I used some of the new Washi tape from Stampin' Up!
Fold the cardstock in on all of the score lines so it looks like this.
Fold in the ends and place Sticky Strip on both of the ends.
Peel off the liner for the Sticky Strip on one side, and lay the picture on one side of the cardstock with it sticking out of the slit you cut.
Then, peel off the liner on the second Sticky Strip and lay it on top of the cardstock.
It should look like this:
Test out your skills to see if it stands up.

What do you think?
