Never Ending Card Tutorial

It's been a very long time since I've made a "never-ending card". I have an old tutorial that has odd scoring measurements like 1 1/16" and 3 3/16" so I decided to revise it. With these new measurements, it is much easier to use the Scor-Pal for this project!

This has also been called a "four-in-one card". Hope this tutorial inspires you to make your own!

NEVER ENDING CARD

Supplies:
4" x 10" piece of solid cardstock (I used Bazzill)
Scor-Pal
Adhesive
Paper trimmer or craft knife
Stamps (I used Always Remember from TAC)
Ink
Other flat embellishments (optional)
Scrap pieces of patterned paper (I used Angelee from TAC):
(4) 2 1/4" x 3/4"
(8) 2 1/4" x 1 3/4"
(8) 1" x 3/4"
(4) 1" x 1 3/4"

Directions:

Step 1: (see red lines) Click to enlarge if you need to.
______________________________________________

Step 2 (see blue lines) Click to enlarge if you need to.
______________________________________________

Step 3: (see green lines) Turn cardstock so the short side is at the top upper left corner of the Scor-Pal. Score at 1" and 3" from the top edge down to the first score line ONLY. Turn cardstock around and do the same thing at the other end.
______________________________________________

Step 4: (see black lines) Using a paper trimmer or craft knife, make a cut in the center (2" each side) from the 2 1/2" score line down to the 7 1/2" score line.
______________________________________________

Step 5: Now cut on the 2 1/2" score line from the 1" line down to the 3" line. Do the same thing on the 7 1/2" score line.


Step 6: Place adhesive in the four places designated by gray shading in the diagram. Fold the left end up on the 2 1/2" score line, and the right end on the 7 1/2" score line, so they meet in the middle. They will be adhered to the back layer at four places.
______________________________________________

Step 7: Adhere scrap pieces of patterned paper in place. Stamp and embellish as desired.



The picture above shows the beginning of card (gate-fold style).

Open and fold sides to the back to get the next view:


Now, flip top up and bottom down to get this view:


Next, open the sides and fold to the back again and you'll have the next view:


To go back to the beginning, flip the top up and bottom down. It "NEVER ENDS"!


Let me know if you make one! Have a great day, Tootles!

Vicki,
This tutorial is truly amazing. Thank you for the step-by-step. I've tried and tried to make this type of card and never could quite GET it. You've made it do-able for me (and for me class ladies).

Doing the happy dance,

Just seen a new way to do this.

take 2 squares of card score at 1/4 and 3/4 of size and mark the half way with a line.
With pencil marks on the out side

turn one 90 degrees, and stick corners just like you do. now cut the pencil lines. one will be north south, the other east west.

it works the same but the cards never stick as the fit int he centre is perfect..
