Directions

 

Place the 5 ” x 12” cardstock base onto the Martha Stewart Score Board with the 12” along the top edge. Score at these points: 2”, 4”, 8” and 10”.
Turn the cardstock so that the 5 ” edge is on the top. Use either a craft knife and cutting mat or place the cardstock on a paper trimmer to make the required cuts. From the left edge, measure in 1 ” and vertically cut between the 2” and 10” scored lines. Next measure in 1 ” from the right edge and vertically cut between the 2” and 10” scored lines.
Match up the smaller panel pieces on top of the different sections of the card, there should be about 1/8” border around each. Stamp and decorate the smaller panel pieces. Center and attach the smaller panel pieces to the card base with the double stick tape.
Optional: You can take to stamped flower design san layer them together. Pierce a hole in the center and stick a brad through. Center and pierce a hole in the left edge panel, add the flower by securing the brad to the card.
There are a few ways to fold the card closed. Play around and decide which shows off your designs the best.
On the Joy of Crafting show, Deb closed the card by folding the left panel on top of the middle panel. Then tucking the right side panels under the middle panel.
