A2 Spine Card

Here we are at Tuesday again.  That means Tutorial Tuesday, which I forgot all about last week.  Never mind I had three tutorials shot and uploaded.  My memory isn’t as good as it should be.

I first saw this spine card on Godelieve’s Stamping Matilda blog.  When I saw it again at my local card shop, I thought it was time to do a tutorial.  My card goes a step further by using the Cuttlebug. Enjoy!

Supplies:  CB folder, cardstock, ATG gun adhesive or double-sided tape

Cut your card at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″

Score at 4 5/16″

Using a ruler and pencil, draw a line at 1″ from the center score.  Do this on the left side and the right side of the score line.

Fold cardstock in half.

Lift cardstock and crease it at the score line.  Do this with the front and back score line.  Your spine is now created.

Place your Cuttlebug folder over your cardstock, and butt the edge of your CB folder to the spine score line.  Your spine will not be embossed.

This is how your card will look after it has been embossed.

Using a good bondable tape, run tape along the spine of the card and press down to seal well.

Decorate your spine, or leave it alone.  Either way works well.
