Make a buckle card as a new way to showcase your cardmaking skills
"A buckle is a great addition to an old shoe"
A buckle card is a delight both to make and to receive. It adds a special pizzazz to a handmade greeting that may be long remembered by the recipient. If you have not tried this cardmaking technique before, why not go ahead and try one now? I'll show you how.
You will need:
Here's what to do:
First, score your cardstock base into a gate fold card shape and punch a window in the left hand foldover side with your Word Window punch. I actually used the Modern Label Extra Large punch from Stampin' Up! in the card shown.
Now take the smaller piece of cardstock and score it 1cm in on one end. You can finish the other end (the one that will slide into the window you punched) by rounding the corners with the Project Life if you like. Go ahead and slide the smaller piece of cardstock into the punched hole, then align it straight across your card. Adhere the 1cm scored part to the back of your card shell.
Now go ahead and decorate your card the way you want to. Here I embossed the strap with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder (I love that design) and used designer paper to create the fan fold flowers and decorate the card fronts with it too. I used the punched shape I created when I made the strap window to stamp a greeting on and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals. I used Regal Rose and Marina Mist cardstock. The brad was a Vintage one from Stampin' Up! and the heart for the half flower was made with the small heart punch from Stampin' Up! and glittered.
I added some Sahara Sand paper strips to the opening edges that I finished off with the Scallop Border punch, also from Stampin' Up!
