Flap Card Tutorial

I had a few people request dimensions for my card that I posted a couple of days ago, so I decided to give you a tutorial. How does that sound?


Supplies: 3½ x 11 card stock
3¼ x 4 patterned paper
3¼ x 4 White for Vanilla card stock
stamps/ink, card stock for stamping and matting your image
Coluzzle Cutting System with circle template
Scor-Pal or scoring tool of choice
Paper Cutter
BasicGrey magnetic snap closures or similar product
Any punches, ribbon, and or embellishments you desire



Take your 3½ x 11 piece of card stock, and use your Coluzzle Cutting System with your circle template to cut the curve using the most outer channel.



Trim the straight side of your card stock to measure 10 3/8 inches total length. After cutting, re-check your measurements. Your distance from where the curve begins, to the straight edge should measure 9 ½ inches. Make adjustment as necessary.



Score your card stock at 4¼ and 8½ inches using your Scor-Pal or other scoring tool.



Fold on scores and adhere the designer paper to the lower flap as shown.


Stamp, color, and mat your image, and adhere it to the top flap using Stampin' Dimensionals.



Use BasicGrey magnetic snap closures (or similar product) on the back of your image, and on the base of your card stock as shown.



Adhere your 3¼ x 4 inch white or vanilla card stock to the base of your project, to cover the snap.


Use any ribbon and/or embellishments to finish.



I hope you have fun with this! Please let me know if you make one, so I may check it out.

Thanks for visiting, and have a nice day!!
