Wiper Card by Sandie

Hi everyone. Today I would like to share a tutorial on how to make a wiper card. I love shaped cards and especially love the hidden pop up wiper on this design. 

Supplies :
Design papers with co-ordinating cardstock
White card for matting
Heart pin
DS Tape or other adhesive
Paper Trimmer & Scoring board
Classic Circle & Scalloped Circle Nestabilities

I started by first colouring my image and cutting it out using the circle nestabilities. Leaving the nestie die on I used distress ink and a blending tool and shaded the background slightly.

Once you are happy with your image put it to one side until you have the card base constructed. 

To begin with you need -
  • Two 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" pieces of cardstock, for your card base
  • One 1 1/2" x 3" piece of cardstock, for your "wiper"
Score your 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock at 1 1/2" and 3". Repeat on your second piece.

Prefold all scored lines. The score line next to the large panel should fold down. Repeat for your second cardstock piece.

Mark the 1 1/2" x 3" piece of cardstock at 1 1/2" on the long side. Score diagonally from the top right hand corner down to the pencil mark on the left.
Fold your score line and apply some adhesive tape.

Take one of your card base pieces and lay it down with the score lines to the right. This will be your card front. Adhere your strip, image facing down, between the two score lines.

Add adhesive to the edges of both 4 1/4" sides of the cardstock piece.

Place your second 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock over your card front. Make sure the score lines are on the left.

Turn your card around

Decorate the front panels and your wiper as desired. I matted my image onto a scalloped circle cut out from the same colour card as I used for the base of the card.

This is how the card looks once it is folded to place in an envelope. The wiper folds down between the front and back panels and pops back up when the card is opened up again.

Well I hope you like my tutorial and that you will give it a try. If you do don't forget to link up, or post your creations on the facebook page so that we can see it :)
