Mid Challenge Tutorial

This fabulous project was from one of team members, Lois, in our current challenge and we wanted for you to be able to create it yourself so we have the tutorial for you.

This month's "More Than One Score" challenge on the Scor-Pal blog was 3-D cards, something that I love to make.  For my card, I made a Z Box Pop-Up Card, which was lots of fun to make.  I used some new stamps from Kindred Stamps called Galactic Adventure and combined them with some stamps from an old set from MFP Stamp Shop, which unfortunately is no longer in business.  Star Wars nerd that I am, I had lots of fun making this card.

To make a Z Box Pop-Up Card, cut 2 pieces of blue cardstock, one 4 1/4" x 11" and the other 2 1/8" x 11", scoring them both at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2", as shown.

Fold on score lines in opposite Z-folds, as shown . . .

. . . and glue the narrow one to the front of the card base, as shown.

Using the remaining 2 1/8" x 11" strip, score at 7/8", 3 5/8", 4 1/8", 6 7/8", 7 3/8", and 10 1/8".  Fold as shown.

Apply double-sided adhesive tape to the folds, as shown . . .

. . . and repeat on the other sections on the opposite side.

Remove paper backing from the double-sided adhesive tape and carefully fit the folded strip into the box in the card base.

You can then decorate your card.  Add the patterned paper to the back and front panels.  Cut the sky paper to 4" x 5 1/4" and cut in half (5 1/4" x 2").  Adhere one half to the top of the back panel.  Cut the remaining piece in half (2 5/8" x 2") and add to the right side of the back panel and the top of the front panel.  Cut the other patterned paper to 5 1/4" x 2" and adhere to the bottom of the front panel.

Stamp the images of Han Solo, Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, the rocket, and the planet -- and color with markers.  Carefully fussy-cut the images and attach to the card.  Stamp the sentiments and cut out with a punch -- and adhere as shown.

Here is a close-up of the inside of the pop-up box portion of the card.

And may the Force be with you!!!

This is great! I've seen a number of explosion boxes, but never a combo card/ pop up box like this. You did a great job! Thanks for the instructions!
