KSS Fun Fold #6 - Open Book Fold

For the today's Fun Fold design sponsored by Kitchen Sink Stamps, I have chosen to make an "open book" fold sympathy card featuring the Multi Step Iris.

My completed card is 4.75 inches by 6.5 inches. The insert was cut from a 6 inch by 10 inch panel of card stock. The red lines are cut and the blue lines are scored.

Cut 1 inch down from the top and one inch up from the bottom from inch 1 to inch 9 on your trimmer. The score lines are at inch 1,2, 8, and 9 from cut to cut. At 5 inches score all the way across the card. At 4 and 6 score from the cut to the outside edge at the top and bottom.

After the pop up is cut and scored, fold and burnish all the folds and place score tape on the three sections shown below to secure to inside of the card. Repeat of the other half of the pop up.

I then attached the stamped images to the front and inside of the card.
