Yesterday I shared a Christmas Latch Fold card. Today I have another version using the Tranquil Tulips set. OK, I did this card first and then realised for the Blog Hop that it was for the Holiday Catalogue. I thought I would share it with you today and give you the tutorial for it. 🙂
I have used the Birthday Blossoms set for the front and inside. I think it works well. The small flower to hold the flap was punched with the 3/4″ circle and then layered on a circle punched from Cherry Cobbler with the 1″ circle punch.
Here is the inside. I added a strip of the Old Olive paper from the Color Theory Paper Stack.
CREATE YOUR OWN LATCH FOLD CARD
** Apologies in advance for Imperial measurements. I am not too familiar with your standard card size so just check the measurements first for the front and inside card mats 🙂
1. From a standard size card base cut off 2.5cm (1″) off the front of the card.
2. Stamp your front image on Whisper White card. This piece was 7cm x 14.4cm. (for Imperial, measure a piece slightly smaller than the size of your front panel). If you like add a strip of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
3. Cut a strip for your latch which measures 10.5cm x 2.5cm and score it at 8cm. (4 1/8″ x 1″). The white sentiment strip is 7.6cm x 2.1cm (3″x 3/4″)
4. For the inside panel cut a piece of Whisper White for the card mat slightly smaller than the inside of your card. (10.1cm x 14.4cm). (Imperial measure approximately 1/8″ smaller than the inside of your card). Add a strip of Designer Series Paper (14.4cm x 3cm) (Imperial 1 1/8″ x length of your card). BEFORE you stick this down to the inside of your card adhere your latch strip by adhering the smaller section of your strip behind your white card mat.
5. Fold this over the front of the card and position your punched circle piece in place that will hold your card closed. You can add a Dimensional to the back of the circle to raise it up but remember to ONLY ADD IT BEHIND HALF of the circle to allow you to fit the latch under it.
Hope this makes sense. Have fun making your Latch Fold card.
