I apologize for not getting this tutorial up before this. Been a busy few weeks - what with Spring Break and we LOVED having our kids home. So.....I finally found a few minutes today to make another card and take pictures.
We made one of these cards in the March club meetings and everyone loved them. A bit of a learning curve, but easy, peasy once you have the measurements!
Here's the card I made today using the new Designer Series Paper from the Summer Smooches Suite which you can now order - more about that at the end of this post

Here is a quick tutorial - feel free to email me, if you have any questions!! [email protected]
Step 1. Start with a piece of card stock or designer series paper that is 12" x 8"
Score at 2", 4", 8" and 10". Make a LIGHT score line at the 6" mark (doesn't need to be a deep line)
TIP: The Scoring Stylus has two ends - one is smaller than the other. Use the smaller end for scoring card stock and the bigger end for scoring designer series paper. Using the small end can cut through the dsp
With a ruler and a pencil, mark the top short end at the 5 1/2" mark and the bottom short end at the 2 1/2" mark
Bottom Short end marked at 2 1/2"
Line up the 5 1/2" mark and 2 1/2" mark on the paper cutter and cut
Mark the larger end of both pieces in the middle at the 2 3/4" mark.
Mark the other end of each piece (small end) at the 1 1/4" mark
Line up your ruler between these two tick marks (2 3/4" at one end and 1 1/4" at the other end and make little marks on the 2", 6" and 10" scoring lines
The next step is to make your cuts. You will cut from the bottom edge up to your pencil mark at the 2", 6" and 10" marks. You will cut both pieces, but one will be from the straight edge and the 2nd one will be from the crooked edge
You will now accordian fold both pieces on the 2", 4", 8" and 10". It's not critical which way you fold as it will work out!
You put the two pieces together, matching up the cuts.
Once that is accomplished, you now open up and lay it flat - burnishing your folds
When you are done folding your card will look like this when it stands up
The last step is to decorate it!! Have fun!!
Here is the one we made in class
We used the Everyday Enchanted Designer Series Paper that was offered during Sale-A-Bration, the Fresh Vintage Stamp Set, The Brads and Ribbon from the Everyday Enchantment Brad and Ribbon Pack. We also used the Peek-A-Boo Frames for the front (124587)
And here are a couple more - WARNING!! these are pretty addicting
I used Very Vanilla Card Stock for the Base and stamped it with Fabulous Florets (WM 123025, CM 123027, page 107)
I also used Apothecary Art (WM 125525, CM 125527, page 24 Occasions Mini) for the front and the new Framelits Labels Collection (125598, page 6 Occasions Mini)
And a birthday card - LOVE this one with all the glitter. I cased this one
The cupcakes are made using the Silver/Red Glimmer Paper and the Cupcake Builder Punch (121807, page 213)
The sentiment is from the set A Word for You (WM 117032, CM 120528, page 165)
Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!! Once you start it will go together easily, I promise!!
