This card does need to align right for the card to move smoothly while opening. The card opens alternately - sideways and then up & down. You get 4 views before it goes back to the beginning.. Here is my 8" x 8" card. The card cut is using George and the embellishments are from Straight From the nest cartridge. I love this one along with Heritage and Sentimental.
when you open sideways you get to the next page - so 2nd page
open up and down - 3rd page
then open sideways again - 4th page
To plan the card I made some sketches . click on the image to open a tad larger.
here is the Dimensions sketch

This helps in planning and placement.
You need to take care to carefully align the card. If the card catches you can just trim a sliver .
Using solid cardstock helps as the card turns both ways. I have used 2 black cardstock for the card base and then one more for shadow for the diecuts.Then the inside card layering paper is from My mind's eye - Spectrum Warm. the image cuts are using K&Y company Classic K. I have stickled them .
I have loaded 2 files one just for the card base using George and the other having both SFTN and George - the fie as it is as I have cut.
1) Use solid cardstock or pattern paper that has the same design on both sides for the base as the card turns both ways in a puzzle like fashion so you might end up with hodge podge design otherwise
2) Glue only until half the mark before the scoremark. In this eg as the card score marks falls at the 2 inch mark glue only a 1 inch square.
3)Butting the card against a right angled surface corner like your score pal or Martha Stewart scorer or T-square helps in easy alignment
4) Keep opening the card many times before gluing the inside panels and images.
There is a 2 part video too for assembling
