Surprise Double Wiper Card | Stamping Bella Tutorial

Hi all!! Today I'm sharing how I made a Surprise Double Wiper Card featuring Edna the Everything Fairy and an extra sentiment from Edna with a Cupcake on Top. I've also included a video below showing how it works. 

I love interactive cards and when I came across this idea recently I had to make one. They are pretty easy to make once you stick to the given dimensions, but it will need a lot more thought and plenty of time for trial & error if you want to make a bigger version. The mechanism is designed to fit this size card perfectly. 

Designer paper
Scoring board and bone folder
Ruler and pencil

How to: 
Stamp Edna the Everything Fairy onto a piece of blending card. 
Using the masking technique, stamp three of the cupcakes onto a piece of card measuring 1 7/8" x 1 7/8". 
Stamp a single cupcake onto a separate piece of card. 
Stamp the sentiment from Edna with a Cupcake on Top, onto a 1 7/8" x 1 7/8" piece of card. 

Colour the images using your preferred medium and set aside to make the card base. 

To make the wiper mechanism cut one piece of card measuring 2 3/8" x 6" (6cm x 15.2cm) 
Score at 1 1/8", 4.25", and 5.5" (2.7cm, 10.7cm, and 13.7cm)

Make a notch at  3 1/8" (7.7cm), top and bottom

Score diagonally from the top 3 1/8" notch down to the 5.5" (13.7cm) score line. Repeat from the bottom 3 1/8" notch up to the 5.5" (13.7cm) score line

Mountain fold both end score lines and the diagonal score lines. Valley fold the 4.25" (10.7cm) line. 

For the card base: 
Cut one piece of card measuring 5 1/8" x 10.25" (13cm x 26cm). Score at 5 1/8" (6.5cm) on the long side. Fold and crease the score line. 

Inside panels:
Cut two pieces of card measuring 5" x 5" (12.8cm x 12.8cm) and two pieces of paper measuring 4 7/8" x 4 7/8" (12.4cm x 12.4cm)
Cut one piece of card measuring 5" x 3 3/8" (12.8cm x 8.6cm) and one piece of paper measuring 4 7/8" x 3.25" (12.4cm x 8.2cm )
Adhere the paper to each of the card panels.

Cut 2 pieces of card measuring 2 1/8" x 2 1/8" (5.4cm x 5.4cm)
Cut two pieces of paper measuring 2" x 2" (5cm x 5cm) 

Adhere the two larger panels to the inside of the card base. 

On the inside back panel, mark 3 1/8" (8cm) from the score line centered vertically 2 3/8" (6.5cm)

Make a pencil mark in the centre of the wiper mechanism at the 5.5" (13.7cm) score line. 

Apply adhesive to the outside of the smaller end and, folding it under and lining up the pencil marks, adhere it down. 

Apply adhesive to the outside of other end of the mechanism. Fold the flap under and, keeping it flat, adhere to the inside front of the card base. 

Once the glue has dried, fold over the card base and use a bone folder to smooth the score lines on the wiper mechanism. 

Open the card up and apply adhesive to bottom triangle as shown.

Adhere one of the 2 1/8" x 2 1/8" (5.4cm x 5.4cm) pieces of card to it. 

Repeat for the top wiper, adhering the paper layers and the images too. 

Apply adhesive to the large section of the wiper mechanism as shown. 

Adhere the 5" x 3 3/8" (12.8cm x 8.6cm) panel, burnishing well with a bone folder

For the card front:
Cut one piece of card measuring 4/78" x 4 7/8" (12.4cm x 12.4cm) and a selection of papers to decorate as preferred. 

Fussy cut around Edna and the single cupcake. Adhere both to the card front using foam tape/dots, placing the cupcake in Edna's hand. 

Stamp the sentiment from Edna the Everything Fairy onto a strip of card and cut to size. Adhere to the card front and embellish as desired.
