lIve crafting 2

We had another evening of live crafting on crafters companion forum, here is what we made and instructions

Tag card

Some extra info
For my base card I have taken A4 pearlescent card and put it through the printer, I have printed pale pink onto one side and pale pink with white spots onto the other, you don’t have to do this, a plain base card look just as good

Step 1
We are going to make a 5inch square card, but don’t do any folding yet
Take your A4 base card and cut down length ways at 5 inches, so that you have a 2 long pieces of card.
See photo Keep both pieces

Step 2
Take the 5 inch wide bit of card and score at the A4 half fold, flip it over onto the other side and score at 5 inch square fold, keep this side facing turn the card around so the other end is butted up and score at the 5 inch square fold again.
You will have three score lines like this
Step 3
Fold the centre line, them the outer two lines back on to it crease well, so you’re inside card look like this.

Step 4
If you are matting your pattern paper then cut the contrasting card to the given size and then your pp a ¼ inch smaller
Take your pattern paper and cut to two 4 x 4 pieces, add one this to the front

Step 5
Take the left over strip from the A4 card that we cut in step 1
And cut two pieces 2 inches wide off this strip, then take your scissors and cut like this, we are making little tags, you might want to punch a hole or add a brad its up to you.

Step 6
Take your first tag add some double sided tape to the uncut edge then stick to the inside top of the fold like picture 1
Then take the second tag and stick to the bottom like picture 2 you will have a tag on each side.
So when the card is open it looks like picture 3

Step 7
Add the second piece of pp to the inside of the card.

Step 8
The fun bit, you have your base sections now add the image to the front mat then decorate as you choose.
