Trefoil Cross Tag Punch Side-On Flap Closure Card with Tutorial. And WWWU Colour Challenge card too

Tag Topper A6 Side On 006

Just a quick share today. Edited to add – and a tutorial too….

A very simple but effective version of the Tag Topper Punch  double flap closure card. I first saw this card set side-on here at Tracy May’s blog. And it rose very quickly to the top of my “Have To Be Made List”

Definitely my favourite version of the closure card…. so far…..well it gives me a square to work on!! And you know me and squares….. So this card version will definitely be made again. Thank you for the inspiration Tracy……

And the card…. perfect for so many occasions…. Wedding as shown here. But also change the greeting as we did in class… and instead we had ….Easter, Sympathy, Christening, Baptism, Communion etc etc etc.

And I have already made other versions. This one and another I will share soon were also submitted for our Team Weekly Colour Challenge – aka WWWU – though this one was a bit of a cheat… as it only used half of the colours!!!!

And I have come back on this post to add…… Here is how to make this for yourself…..

European/Metric version .   This is a brief version of the how to – see here for pictures and more detail if you need them….

1. Cut a portrait piece of  A4 cardstock in half (aka PORTRAIT at 10 1/2cm)

2. Score LANDSCAPE at 12.7cm (or 5” in my world!!)

3. Punch both shorter ends centrally using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (half way point is 52 1/2mm)

4. Score down the “shoulder line” on the RHS

5. Cut off all 4 shoulders

6. Fold the RHS tag back onto the card front

US/Imperial version

I was saved from working this out this morning as Brenda Quintana’s of Qbees Quest blog post popped into my in box….so here is a US step by step with pictures too!! Thank you Brenda….

And as I am back here…. here is an Easter version of the card….
