"Standing card" tutotial

I don't know how to call this card, but I took pictures on how I made it..
First - let's see the finished card:

When it's closed:
 Side view:

And now for the tutorial:

I won't give the exact measurements, but the concept of making the card.
Start with your card base, scored half way:

Cut half circle - the side that is close to the scoring line (I used Coluzzle, but any other way to cut half a circle is OK):

 This is how it should look like:

And when you "pop" the half-circle out - crease the folds (where the half circle "meets" the edges of the card:

Temporarily adhere your background paper:

Turn the card inside out and cut the half circle on the background paper as well:

Remove your background paper.
Now we have the card base and the background paper, both match and have the half circle cut:

Cut off the upper part of the circle from the background paper:

If you want to add ribbon / bakers twine, etc - now is the time to do it:

 Adhere the background paper to your card base:


 Decorate the inside about half way (this is where you should write your greetings):

Cut a small half circle above that place (~half of the height):

Now you have this. to hold the card standing:

That's it..
(And again, the finished card:)
