Card: Today you are You

I saw a tri-fold card on Pinterest and just had to have a go at making one myself.
I altered the measurements a little - first I started with a card stock base of 6" x12".
I scored it at 2", 4", 8" and 10" along the long edge (across the short width).
Then you have to make two cuts from the 2" score line to the 10" score line. One cut is at 1.5", the other at 4.5".
The printed paper is cut as follows:
2 pieces are 1.75" x 5.75" (the giraffe paper in my example)
4 pieces are 1.75" x 1.25" (yellow print)
2 pieces are 1.75" x 2.75" (grey print)
2 pieces are 3.75" x 1.25" (grey print)
1 piece 3.75"x 2.75" (orange stripe)
For the front piece you need two pieces of card stock, one 3"x4.5" and another 2.75" x 4.25"
The sentiment in the middle is on a piece of card stock 3.25" x 2"
