Ben on a Wiper Card

Lois here today with another fun-fold card  -- a wiper card -- using several dies and a die/stamp set from CottageCutz.  I love interactive cards that provide a small surprise.

Supplies for this card are as follows:

Two strips of blue cardstock 4 1/4" x 8 1/2"
One strip of blue cardstock 1 1/2" x 3"

Five pieces of red cardstock - 1 1/4" x 4" (2), 4" x 5 1/4" (1), 3" x 4 1/4" (1), 1 3/8" square (1)
Three pieces of red checked paper - 1 1/8" x 3 7/8", 3 7/8" x 5 1/8", 1 1/4" square
Three pieces of white cardstock 1 1/8" x 3 7/8", 3 3/4" x 5", 7/8" round
One scrap of green cardstock - 5"
CottageCutz dies & stamps - Ben w/Puppy, Tree Stump and Log for Peekers, Campsite, Spring Grass
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Distress Vintage Photo
Copic markers
7/8" circle punch
Scor-Pal, Scor-Tape, Tape runner, Foam pop dots

To construct the card:

Score both of the 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" strips at 1 1/2" and 3".

Fold both strips as shown

Place the 1 1/2" x 3" strip as shown, with the right-hand corner at the one-inch mark.  Score diagonally at 1".

Place a small piece of Scor-Tape at the score line.

Place Scor-Tape on the small outside section of both strips, as shown.

Place the small strip  in the left-hand small section so that the diagonal score line is just below the top of the card.

Adhere the two panels as shown, with the small "wiper" strip at the top left.

When the card is closed, the "wiper" will fold down in between the two sections.  You can now decorate the front of the card.

To complete the card I stamped and cut the various images needed.  As you can see, I used the Ben w/Puppy stamp/die set, as well as several other dies -- Spring Grass, Tree Stump and Log for Peekers, and Campsite.  I colored Ben and the puppy with Copic markers and sponged on some brown distress ink to the log.


Then cut the various pieces of cardstock and patterned paper as described above, stamping the sentiment "Hi" on the white circle.


Here is my completed card, both closed . . .


. . . and, when you pull the left-hand tab, opened.

This is a fun, interactive card; and I hope you'd like to try to make one yourself.
