Place the solid 6” x 11” cardstock onto the MSC Score Board with the 12” edge along the top of the board. Score at the following measurements: 2.5”, 5”, 7.5” and 10”.

Turn the cardstock so that the 6” length is along the top edge of the score board. Score at the 3.5” measurement, stopping at the 7.5” mark, skipping section 4 (7.5” to 10”) then continue down to the last 10” to 11” section.

Follow the diagram and cut the four sections apart along the top 2.5”, going left to right. From the top edge, cut 2.5” down to the horizontal scored line at 2.5”, 5”, 7.5” and 10”. Cut and remove the last 1” x 2.5” section completely.

Crease at all of the scored lines to help define the sections. Center and tape the printed cardstock panels to the corresponding sections onto the base solid cardstock. The 5.75” panels are taped to both sides of section 4. The 2.25” x 2.25” square panels are also taped to both sides of the cardstock on sections 1 – 3. BEFORE taping the 3.25” panels on you may want to form and tape the box together first. Fold box and tape the 1” end tab to the inside of the box. Now, take the three 3.25” panels ad tape to the remaining three outside sections.

Take one of the 1” x 3.5” cardstock strips and place on the MSC Score Board with 3.5” edge along the top. Score at the .5” and 3” marks. Repeat with other strip.

Place the strips inside the top of the box and tape the .5” sections to the sides. These create a base for inside of the box.

Arrange your stamped images as you desire along the back top section and base strips. Test to see if the embellishments aren’t damaged when the card folds flat, otherwise adjust their position. Adhere with double stick tape, glue dots and/or Pop Up dots.

Stamp a sentiment on the white cardstock; punch out with the 2” oval punch. Punch out a 2.5” oval with a coordinating solid cardstock. Layer and tape together. Tape to the front flap.

NOTE: When card is folded flat it is 5” x 6” and should fit in an envelope for 5” x 7” cards.
