Today I am sharing the BONUS card my paper pumpkin subscribers got to make at my March 2017 FMN class featuring the Many Happy Birthdays stamp set from the February 2017 paper pumpkin kit.
This stamp set was just perfect to create a pull tab card.
When you pull the tab it reveals the hidden part of the greeting. Super fun-right?
- 11″ x 4 1/4″ score at 5 1/2″ (folded along score line) Dapper Denim cardbase
- (2) 5 1/4″ x 4″ Whisper White cardstock
- 5″ x 3 3/4″ Designer Series Paper
- 1 1/4″x 4 1/4″ Dapper Denim cardstock
To create the pull tab element, use the 1″ circle punch to punch a hole on one side of the designer series paper. Tip: be sure the punch is pushed down against the paper for easy alignment.
Punch a second circle at the opposite side of the designer series paper.
Use the stampin’ trimmer to connect the punched holes. This will create the opening.
On the back side of the designer paper, place the 1 1/4″ strip of Dapper Denim cardstock over the opening. Add foam adhesive strips along the top and bottom of the strip, leaving just enough room for the cardstock to slide between the foam strips.
Add scraps of the foam strips along the lower edge of the designer paper.
Remove the Dapper Denim strip and adhere the designer series layer to the Whisper White cardstock layer.
Stamp the hidden message through the opening on the far right side of the card.
Slide the Dapper Denim strip in between the foam strips making sure to cover the opening.
Add a dimensional dot at the far right edge of the opening. This will create the stop for the pull tab when it is closed.
Add a second dimensional dot next to the first one. This will create you stop for the other side (when the tab is open).
Adhere punched circle greeting layer to the dimensional dots. Be sure to check the placement when the tab is open as well as closed to be sure you are happy with it before applying pressure to secure the layer.
Adhere the layer to the card front.
Clip off the excess length on the left side of the tab so it does not hang off the edge of the card. This will allow the card to fit inside a standard envelope.
I would love to see what pull tab projects you create. Please share them on my facebook page Stampin Up! Demonstrator Wendy Lee
