Floating Butterfly and a little Surgery

I love a good card fold, but this one concentrates on the inside.  Maybe not technically, but kinda.  I used a large butterfly die, and needed them smaller so I brought out the scissors.

One of the ladies on the live video, about fainted, when I said we were going to cut the butterfly.  But sometimes you just need to.  I even cut stamps! That about sent her over the edge, jokingly of course.

Today though we are going to concentrate on the guts of the card, aka the inside mechanism.

Cut a piece of cardstock to 9 x 3 1/2 (pool party in video tutorial)

You want to score that at 4 1/2, 6 1/4, and finally 8. You will need to fold at the 4 1/2 score line, to resemble a card base fold.  Then fold the 6 1/4 score line back the other way. Then 8 gets folded like the first score line.  This will create a valley, mountain, valley on the card.  Almost like a Z fold with an extra flap.

I am not good at writing tutorials, I would suggest watching the video for the rest.  I don't want to waste your paper on my bad explanation.
