Pop Up Book Card Tutorial

Hello My Friends,
Happy Monday to you.  I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  Some of my peers in the teaching profession will only  have two and one-half day to work this week and will be looking forward to four days off.  Off for Thanksgiving, the big "eat" at grandma's house day.  Off on Friday, the let's go shopping to get some black Friday deals.  Off on Saturday and Sunday to do our usual.
Now, let's get to the tutorial for today.  I made a pop up book card in one of my post last week and fail to give it that name.  I used it as a Christmas card.  I want to take you step by step today so that you can make a pop up book card for whatever taste you want.
Let's gather our supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, score board, paper cutter, distress ink, sentiments or stamp with sentiment:
Supplies
I'm going to give you the measurements for two types of cards.
CARD #1 (4 1/4 X 5 1/2)  and CARD #2 (6 X 6).  Please take note and don't mix up your directions.

CARD #1  on the left                                                                              CARD #2 (right)

                 


Cut patterned paper for CARD #1 at 8 1/2" by 5 3/8"
Cut patterned paper for CARD #2 at 5 7/8" by 12"

On patterned paper for CARD #1 measure down 1" from the top edge (long side) and cut from the 1" to 7 1/2 ". Do this also on the opposite side.
On patterned paper for CARD #2 measure down 1" from the top edge (long side) and cut from the 2" to 10". Do the same on the opposite side.

Place patterned paper upside down on scoreboard.  For Card #1. score on the 1" line, top and bottom at 2 3/4", 5 3/4", and 4 1/4".  On the middle section score at 1", 1 3/4", 4 1/4", 6 3/4", and 7 1/2".

For Card #2, score on the 1" line, top and bottom at 4", 6" and 10".  Score the middle section at 2",
 2 3/4", 6", 9 1/4" and 10".

For CARD #2 ( only), cut off a 1/16" strip from the left and right of patterned paper,
For both cards valley and mountain fold along score lines.  Use the photos to help.
Apply glue to the back of the  outside left and right panels of the patterned paper and adhere to plain cardstock. Open and close card to make sure folds are lined up correctly. Decorate the front (your choice).
