Scor-Pal Patriotic Challenge

As hostess for the July Scor-Pal "More Than One Score" challenge, I have the instructions for my Patriotic wiper card.

Two pieces of cardstock cut 4 1/4" x 8 1/2"
One piece of cardstock cut 1 1/2" x 3"

Score one piece of the 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" cardstock at 1 1/2" and 3".
Score the other piece the same.

Fold both strips as shown.

Place the 1 1/2" x 3" piece of cardstock as shown, with the right-hand corner at the 1" mark.  Score at the 1" mark.

Place two small pieces of Scor-Tape at the score line.

Place the small strip in the left-hand small section so that the diagonal score line is just below the top of the card.

Place Scor-Tape on the small outside section of both strips, as shown.

Adhere the two panels as shown, with the small "wiper" strip at the top left.

When the card is closed, the "wiper" will fold down between the two sections.

Now it's time to decorate the card.

White cardstock cut to 4" x 5 1/4"
Blue cardstock cut to 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
Two small white strips cut to 1 1/4" x 4"
Two small blue strips cut to 1 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Two pieces of patterned paper cut to 1" x 3 3/4"
White cardstock cut at least to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (larger than will be required to allow trimming)

Create sunset background on the white cardstock using Distress Oxide inks -- Seedless Preserves,  Abandoned Coral,  Worn Lipstick, and Frayed Burlap.

Stamp images and trim to 3 3/4" x 5"   Layer the two small panels and adhere to the two left-side small sections.  And the card is complete.

I cut out and attached a small American flag to the wiper.

I have a little video to show how the "wiper" works.
