Supplies

  • Art Gone Wild LG Cube 985 Get Well Stamp Set
  • Colored pencils and odor less mineral spirits
  • DCWV Citrus 12x12 Stack
  • brown Divine Twine
  • orange eyelet
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • orange, light green and white cardstock
  • scoring board or trimmer with scoring blade
  • a super sticky tearable tape or redline tape

Directions

  1. Cut 11" x 4 1/4" piece of light green stock. Half fold to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" for card base.
  2. Cut 4" x 5 1/4" piece of background paper from DCWV Citrus Stack. Adhere to card front.
  3. Cut (4) 2" x 2" white squares. Stamp one of each of the images on a square using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
  4. Color images.
  5. Cut (4) 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" green squares. Mount a colored image to each square.
  6. Cut 2 1/4" x 9 1/2" stripe of heavy white cards stock (110lb if possible).
  7. Score at 2 1/4", 3", 3 3/4" and 4 1/2" inches. Fold each score line back and forth a few times to break the fold so it will flip easily.
  8. Mount the last image to the 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" square you created by scoring. Mount each remaining image in reverse order on the next stripe above it, being careful to only fasten the top of the image to the next white section on the stripe.
  9. Cut a 4 1/4" x 1" piece of green paper. If the green is lightweight card stock you may want to cut two and adhere them together with lots of tape to give it extra stiffness. Mount this stripe to the back of the white card stock at the bottom of the stripe so the bottom image is on the front and the stripe is on the back. Be careful to center this well.
  10. Attach an eyelet at the opposite undecorated end. Make sure you attach it on the correct side so it's visible when folded over.
  11. Thread twine through the eyelet and secure with a loop.
  12. Fold this assembly so you can see the front and it looks like it does on the front of the card. Lay it face down on the table. Place a really sticky tape or glue on the exposed back edges of the orange stripe. Don't go all the way up to the white - leave a 1/4" so the person can pull a little crooked. Attach this to the front of the card.
  13. When you pull on the bottom tab the images will flip and get pulled behind the other ones like magic. Gently push back in to reset the card. Using heavy cardstock helps makes the push back in easier.
