The side of the paper facing upwards will be the inside, shown behind the pockets/tags, so now is a good time to decide on which side you want.

On the left side, cut across the horizontal scoreline, until you meet the vertical scoreline.

    Elaineabella…I absolutely love these Thursday posts. I don’t DO any of the various media, so I can’t show you my results…but…I make almost every single project. The results are always “spot on”, because of your perfect instructions and step out photos. Some of the projects are used as gifts. Nearly every one of them is saved with notes for technique and measurements. I have a binder notebook full of page protectors and pretty results for future reference. Thanks SO much. I look forward to your posts. Happy Thursday!!!!

    When I made my first card at a stamp class in a stamp store that has since closed up, the instructor showed us the card we were going to make. I looked at her and said “I’m a first timer at card making. There’s no way I can make this card”. She said it wasn’t hard and I could make it. It was an embossed card which I had never done before or even heard of. This was in the early 80’s I think. It was beautiful and it wasn’t that hard, it just looked like it. That’s how this card looks. I don’t think I could ever make it but it was cool to see how it done. Now if I could go to Sandiebella’s house and she could help me, well, that would be a whole ‘nother story. Thanks for showing it us.
