An Interactive Tunnel Card

Hi Everyone!
I've got a super fun card and video for you today.
This first pic looks like it's just a clean and simple card but... opens up to this!

I watched a video the other day by Jennifer Mcguire (I've linked to it below) where she made a few of these tunnel cards. She makes it look so easy. I'll be honest with you though, it took me I think 4 tries to get it right. I kept making the same mistakes but I explain that in my video so you don't make the same mistakes as I did. 

Here are all the measurements for cutting and scoring. I also explain it all in the video.

What you need to make the base:
2 pieces of card stock cut to 5 1/2" x 8"
1 piece of card stock cut to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
nesting dies of your choice

Measurements for scoring and cutting the card base:
- score one of the 5 1/2" x 8" pieces at 4 1/4" on the 8" side 
- fold on the score line (this gives you a side fold card base)
- cut 1/2" off of one of the 5 1/2" edges (this will be the back of the card)

Measurements for scoring the inside tunnel:
- score the other 5 1/2" x 8" piece along the 8" side at 1/2", 4 1/4" and 4 3/4" 
- cut a 1/8" strip off of the end with the 1/2" score line
- fold and burnish all the score lines

- cut a smidgen off the top and one side of the 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" panel
- place in your scoring tool with the 4 1/4 (ish) at the top and score 1/4" in on each side

Click on the video below to see how it all goes together.
