To go along with my Butterfly Frame gift (http://www.instructables.com/id/3D-Butterfly-Dragonfly-Frame-Cut-Stencil-Art/), I thought I better make a card. My wife likes Downton Abbey, and I like buildings, so I decided to make a card using their building.

You could use this principle for any building.

You can make this as a card for any occasion; valentines, birthday, anything.

It takes more time than money to make!

Date Made: Feb 2014
Approx Cost: £1
Approx Time: 2 hours
Difficulty: Easy/Medium

* Card or Thick Paper (Ideally A4 and coloured on one side only)
