This fun tunnel card is a great way to show off your designer series paper!

I also love the 3-D effect of this card.

It’s actually not too difficult to make, as long as you’re following the steps as they go.

How to put your card together

  • Score all your lines with your bonefolder
  • Place the largest cardstock piece face up with the narrow rectangle to the right
  • Choose your DSP that will be the front panel
  • Lightly glue each of the 4 corners and adhere onto the card front
  • Place your largest circle die in the centre and die cut out using a cut/emboss machine
  • You should have 2 circles cut out -set aside for another project
  • Now take one of the 4¼” x 5″ cardstock pieces
  • Adhere the next piece of DSP onto it in the same way as above
  • Place it behind the card front -nestle it into the scored lines to align
  • Place the 2nd largest die in the opening of the cardfront
  • Adhere with washi tape or a posted note
  • Run it through the die cut machine
  • Repeat this process with remaining panel
  • Now find a small enough stamp that will meet the small circle die for the inside (see image above)
  • Stamp and die cut out
  • Adhere with a dimensional or glue onto the base layer
  • Now take your DSP layer that’s the last one and adhere a thin line of glue onto the 1 scored edge
  • Adhere the strip so that the end of it touches the score line of the base laye
  • Repeat the process with the next DSP layer making sure its edge touches the previous one where its score line is
  • Glue the right hand two card panels sticking out
  • Now fold the top of the card over all the layers
  • Press firmly
  • When you realise it should be one unit
  • Adhere the last strip to make the box
  • On the rear side, glue your white cardstock onto your matte
  • Glue the matte onto the card base

And just like that you’ve made a tunnel card.

I made this card last month at card class and make many more like it at classes.
