Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you had a good weekend! I promised I would try to share some directions for this card, and while the photos aren't very good, I do have a bit of a tutorial for you! Since I already had the cardstock cut, scored and assembled to make the sample, I went ahead and decorated it for Wayne's Father's Day card:
Now for the tutorial; as I said, the photos are not very good, but hopefully you'll be able to still get the gist of it! This creates a standard sized card, so the panels to be decorated are not real big, but I think it still makes for an impressive card! So here we go:
1. Cut 4 pieces of cardstock 2 5/8" x 5 1/2". Score each one at 1/2" on the short side and fold and burnish. You should have a 1/2" "tab" along each left side:
7. Flip over the entire piece and apply strong adhesive to the remaining tab, which is the tab on the very first piece you laid on your work surface. Carefully adhere that to the remaining piece of cardstock, again, right next to the fold. This is where it will turn into a 3D card. It is helpful to pick it up to maneuver that last tab into place.
Be sure to burnish your tabs to make sure your adhesive stays tight....Tear N Tape or Sticky Strip works great! When you flatten your card, it should measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". At this point, you can pop it back out and decorate in whatever way you wish. It is helpful to create a test one first using some scrap cardstock or paper. Once you get the basic idea down, they come together quickly! Have fun, hope it was helpful! And enjoy your day and be blessed!
