How to Make a Screen Divider Card

Hello Friends, Followers and Viewers
Do you enjoy your privacy?  Of course you do.  We all do.  Have you put up a privacy screen somewhere on your property to keep your neighbors from peering at everything you do?  What about a wall of cedar trees or red-tip trees? Today, I have a fun project to share with you called a screen divider card.  It will not keep your neighbors from being nosy but it will have someone asking “how did you do that”.
Supplies: 6” by 12” sheet of heavy duty cardstock. (We want it to stand and not fall over when we finish our card; patterned paper of your choice; foil cardstock; scoring board; paper cutter. Spellbinders Labels 16; Martha Stewart punch (see picture); your sentiment; metal accents or bling.
Technique:
1. After you have chosen a piece of 6 by 12 inch piece of cardstock, use your scoring board and score at the following: 1 ½ , 3, 6, 9 and 10 ½ all the way down.
2. Turn your cardstock so that the 6 inch side is at the top facing you. Place this in your cutter 1 inch down on the 12 inch side and cut from the 1 ½ inch score line to 5 7/8 inch (do not cut through the 6 inch score line). Move your blade to 6 1/8 mark and cut down to the 10 ½ score line.  Do this on both of the long sides.
3. On that 1 inch that you just finish doing, go back and score on the 4 ½ and 7 ½ (only on this piece, not all the way down as in step 1).
4. Those score lines you made in step 1 will now be folded mountain, valley, mountain, valley, mountain (up, down, up down, etc.) The 4 ½ and 7 ½ score lines on the 1 inch strip will be folded valley (down).  See picture
5. Use the Spellbinder punch on the bottom of your card.  The tip should be on the 1 ½ score line, the 4 ½ score line, the 7 ½ score line and the 10 ½ score line when you cut those spaces out. (see picture) 
6. Use the Martha Stewart punch on the top to decorate your screen.
7. Cut 2 pieces of foil cardstock (or whatever cardstock you prefer) at 3/8 wide by 12 inches long.  These two pieces will be glued to the top and bottom of card. (See finished picture).
8. Patterned paper for #1 and #6 was cut 4” long by 1 6/8 wide. Then I cut 4 pieces 1 ¾ “ long by ¾ inches wide and glued them  on top of the 4 by 1 6/8 piece leaving a ¼ in gap between the pieces.
9. Patterned paper for #2 and #5 was cut at 3 14/16 long by 7/16 wide and glued to the card base.
10. Foil cardstock was cut at 3 ¾ inches long by 2 ¾ inches wide with patterned paper cut 3 ½ inches long by 2 ½ in. wide matted together for #3 and #4.
11. It is your preference to put whatever sentiment or picture that you want on #3 and #4.
Here is my finished card.
