Continue to score the short side of your main card. Make a mark at 5” on the first part of the card then a mark at 3” on your first score line. Then score the next panel at this 3” mark to the next score line and finally make a mark at 5” in the 3rd score line. Then taking a ruler score the diagonal lines between your 2 marks (follow the video)
