iPhone 5 Card–Team Training swap card Tutorial

 2014_04_Team Training_Stepped Up_Swap_Teen Male_iPhone5_Make Note (2)
This is a stepped up version of the card that I am swapping with my fellow Team demonstrators today. The swap brief is Men – so I was thinking Teen Boys- always hard to make for!!


You can certainly tell that I have a teenager and avid Apple products fan (or two!) in the house – as you can see a few iPhone & iPod creations around this blog!! They always go down well – so I always make a few for stock when I come up with a new design….. So this is a variant of a iPhone 3 card I first made 3 years ago…. which we did in classes but unbelievably I didn’t share on my blog at the time…. probably because all my samples and “stock” all flew out of the door.


So a recipe & a tutorial today…. firstly for the base IPhone below that I swapped with everyone.
2014_04_Team Training_Swap_Teen Male_iPhone5_Make Note (1)
I carefully measured the boys’ iPhone 5 and sized everything to suit!! So apologies to my US counterparts…. this kind of preciseness is where the metric/European system proves dividends!!
So the cardstock dimensions are as follows….
  • Basic Grey  58 x 123mm
  • Basic Black 55 x 120mm
  • Smoky Slate 50 x 90mm
  • Whisper White 50 x 70mm
And for stamping & punching – Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Marina Mist, Gumball Green
And  I also used…
Stamps  - Make Note rotary stamp, Peachy Keen & Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Punches – Word Window, Corner Rounder, 1/2” Circle Punch, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch
Inks – Staz On Black, Whisper White Craft, Versamark & White embossing powder


Now I can hear a few of you wondering where I used a Peachy Keen stamp & the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch…….
The slot waste from the Tag punch was used to created the grey slit at the top…I just cut off the top circular part! I could also have used either of the slots from the Chalk Talk framelits… but I had a lot to make... so punching was much quicker!! Edited to add... I have now realised that you don't need to cut off that circular section at the top after all...some iPhone 5s look exactly like that Tag punch waste part!! Wish I had realised that before!!!


And the cubes stamp from Peachy Keen was a complete Eureka moment….. it was used to create the rounded square within the circular black button at the bottom… just perfect…. I was SO glad that I had that stamp!!


And secondly a tutorial for the centre step card that I just added the base iPhone card onto….. and voila… iPhone 5 plus speakers….
  1. Cut Smoky Slate cardstock  to 105 x 280mm for the card base
  2. With panel PORTRAIT on your trimmer, line up on 2cm on Top Bar and cut down the cutting bar from 2.5cm to 16.5cm
  3. Turn around 180 degrees, line up on 2cm again and cut from 11.5 to 25.5cm
  4. With the panel LANDSCAPE and the cuts to the left hand side… Score across 2 narrow outside sections at 2.5, 5 & 16,5 cm
  5. Score across centre section at 14cm
  6. Fold centre score line as Mountain
  7. Corner round top section (trickier than it sounds!!) 
  8. Fold outside score lines as Mountain; Valley and Mountain
  9. Cut Basic Black card to  17 x 111mm (x2) for the speakers
  10. Emboss using Square Lattice embossing folder
  11. Adhere embossed speakers & iPhone
And I can also easily share the Imperial measurements for the card base – as my original centre step card for the iPhone 3 version was all sized in inches….
  1. Cut Smoky Slate cardstock to 4 1/8” x 11”
  2. With panel PORTRAIT on your trimmer, line up on ¾” on Top Bar and cut down the cutting bar from 1 “ to 6 ½”
  3. Turn around 180 degrees, line up on ¾” again and cut from 4 ½” to 10”
  4. With the panel LANDSCAPE and the cuts to the left hand side - Score across 2 narrow outside sections at 1”; 2” and 6 ½”
  5. Score across centre section at 5 ½”
  6. Fold centre score line as Mountain
  7. Fold outside score lines as Mountain; Valley and Mountain
  8. Corner round top section (trickier than it sounds!!) 
And there you have it….. I have also made some more colourful versions of the card… but I missed daylight and I am posting this at speed as I on my way to or at Team Training as you read this!!


I cannot be late – as  I have designed and I am running the morning project session ( bites all my nails off!!!)……. so more to share on that another day….I REALLY hope they all like the project…..  Needless to say I am REALLY looking forward to the afternoon session!! Sure to be more relaxing for me!!!
