Mid Month Tutorial by Lois

As hostess for the July Scor-Pal "More Than One Score" challenge, I have the instructions for my Patriotic wiper card.

Two pieces of cardstock cut 4 1/4" x 8 1/2"
One piece of cardstock cut 1 1/2" x 3"

Score one piece of the 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" cardstock at 1 1/2" and 3".
Score the other piece the same.

Fold both strips as shown.

Place the 1 1/2" x 3" piece of cardstock as shown, with the right-hand corner at the 1" mark.  Score at the 1" mark.

Place two small pieces of Scor-Tape at the score line.

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

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

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 between the two sections.

Now it's time to decorate the card.

White cardstock cut to 4" x 5 1/4"
Blue cardstock cut to 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
Two small white strips cut to 1 1/4" x 4"
Two small blue strips cut to 1 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Two pieces of patterned paper cut to 1" x 3 3/4"
White cardstock cut at least to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (larger than will be required to allow trimming)

Create sunset background on the white cardstock using Distress Oxide inks -- Seedless Preserves,  Abandoned Coral,  Worn Lipstick, and Frayed Burlap.

Stamp images and trim to 3 3/4" x 5"   Layer the two small panels and adhere to the two left-side small sections.  And the card is complete.

I cut out and attached a small American flag to the wiper.

Scor-Pal More than One Score Challenge July #72 - Anything Goes or Summertime/Patriotic

Welcome to the 72nd Monthly Challenge here at Scor-Pal!
We love showing our projects to you and now it's your chance to show your creations to us!
This month we want to see your "Floral" creations.
We are making some changes to the challenges this year, we will have a theme that the Design Team will follow, and we would love you to follow too, but if you don't want to you can do an "Anything Goes" creation as long as it follows the general rules
Each month we will have a different theme and you will have a month to create and enter your projects. As well as the theme you will need to make "More Than One Score" and tell us where you used the Scor-Pal on your project. So a single fold card won't count but an Easel, Gatefold, Stair Step, etc will :) Also we love to see your "Anything But a Card" projects, just as long as you make "More Than One Score"
We have a ton of inspiration on our Projects on the Scor-Pal website and also on our Pinterest Board to get you eager to enter.

We have a nice set of samples from the Design Team, just click on their names to go to their blogs for more details on their creations.
