Sharing is caring!

I first taught this card a few weeks ago at our Zoom Stamping session, and since then I have had SO many requests to post the full instructions so people can recreate it on their own! It seems this is one of those cards that is super addictive, and once you create one you might have to create a dozen more. Well thank goodness, I finally got around to sharing the full information!

All credit goes to fellow demonstrator Crystal Johnston for the inspiration on this card!

You will need the following pieces of cardstock to create this card:
Cardbase: 5.5 x 8.5″
Same colour cardstock: 5 x 6.25
Coordinating cardstock: 8.5 x 11″
White or Vanilla cardstock: 2.25 x 3.75″, and 3 x 4.5″
Additional scrap of White or Vanilla for stamping

Then you will need the following cuts of DSP (Designer Series Paper). Cut three different co-ordinating patterns from one pack:
3.75 x 5″
3 x 4.5″
2.25 x 3.75″

Take your larger cardbase piece, and score parallel to the short side at 3/4″ and 4.25″.

Rotate 45 so that the 3/4″ scoreline is on the bottom. Line up your cardstock at the 1/2″ mark, and cut from the bottom edge to the 4.25″ score line. Remove from the trimmer, and use your scissors to snip off the cut piece. Your cardstock should look like the photo below.

Add strong adhesive to the 3/4″ tab, as shown in the photo. You’ll want to use either Tear & Tape, or Stampin’ Seal+.

Now set that piece aside and grab your smaller piece of cardstock. Score parallel to the short side at 2.75″.

Rotate 45 , again so your scoreline is towards the bottom, and line up your cardstock at the 3/4″ mark. Cut from the bottom edge to the 2.75″ scoreline, and then snip off the cut piece. Your finished piece should look like this:

Attach the right side of the smaller base to the 3/4″ tab on the left of the larger base, using that strong adhesive you applied earlier. Now you have a GIANT cardbase!

Fold and burnish your scorelines (from left to right: valley, mountain, valley). When looking at the card from above, it should look like a letter M:

Set your cardbase aside and put your co-ordinating cardstock into your trimmer. Along the long side, cut at 4″. Set aside the right-hand piece.

Rotate the left-hand piece, and cut at 5.25″, then at 2.5″, then at 2.5″ again.

You should now have four panels:

Using the remaining piece, cut along the long side at 3.25″. Set aside the long narrow piece.

Rotate, and cut at 4.75″, then at 4.75″ again.

Now you are left with:

Stamp whatever images and/or sentiments you like on the two White or Vanilla cardstock pieces.

Then, mat all your DSP and your White/Vanilla pieces on the co-ordinating cardstock mat pieces you just cut out.

Attach four pieces to the ‘inside’ of your card as shown below.

Attach remaining piece to the ‘outside’ of your card.

You still have a narrow strip of co-ordinating cardstock, and a scrap of White. Stamp your desired sentiment on the scrap of White. Trim both strips to fit.

Overlap this stamped piece with the remaining narrow strip of cardstock and trim to fit. Attach to the front of your card, applying adhesive only on the left side of the strip.

Want more proof of how addictive this design is? One of my customers has been cutting and scoring up a storm, and is SO excited to be using up her old scrapbook papers!

Once you’ve made your own Four-Panel card, come and share a photo with me on my Facebook page! I love to see your creations!

Happy Stampin’!
