Winter Wiper Card

Happy Saturday! Today the DOstamperSTARS are hopping along with FUN FOLDS! My card ended up being a little bit of a fun fold, and a little bit interactive.

This cute interactive Winter Scene is a Wiper Card, and I modeled mine closely on the awesome card by Julie Davison. Please visit her website to see her video and instructions. She spent a lot of time breaking it down so let's give Julie a big HURRAH for sharing her talent with us!

  • Base Cardstock Piece: 8 1/2" x 4 1/4
    • Score at 1 1/2" and 3"
  • DSP Panels: 5 1/8" x 4"; 1 1/4" x 4" (cut 2)
  • Front Piece: 2" x 8" in cardstock of your choice
    • Score at 1 1/2" and 3"
  • Transparent Window Sheet: 1" x 1/2"

I made a modification to the 2x8 front panel using the hill shape from the Freezin' Fun coordinating dies. In these pictures, I marked the score lines with a pen so you can see where to place the die. You wouldn't do this in real life of course!

  1. Line up your hill shape on the 3" score line. The hill should go horizontally across the main section of the panel.

2. Run this piece through your die cutter. I'm using the new Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine, available in September. (or now if you are a demonstrator!)

3. You'll end up with a piece like this. We need to just snip off the top bit, as shown.

4. Now, following the score lines, fold your panel. (at this point, if you aren't sure of the fold, check Julie's instructions.) But it's just your basic z-fold. Your piece should look like the image below. We want to use our paper snips to trim off the bit I have highlighted in yellow.

5. You should have a piece that looks like this, this is what you'll use for the front panel of your Wiper Card!

6. Voila! Here is how it looks, unfolded.

I hope this helped you to create your own Wiper Card! It's a fun card and gets a big WOW when the recipient opens it up! The Freezin' Friends set is perfect for this fun winter scene. :)
