Buckle Card Tutorial

Hi all,

Today I have tutorial on how to make this cute little Buckle Style Card.

You will need the following items

6x6 Card Blank
3 x Patterned Papers
A4 sheet Coloured Card
Colouring Medium (I used Promakers - colours listed below)
Fancy Oval & Plain Oval Dies
Corner Rounder Punch
Embellishments (as prefered)
& obviously basic supplies

1. Trim a 4cm piece away from the LH side of the card blank

2. Take this piece and score across at 5cm from the bottom (this will be your buckle)

3. Round the corners of the Buckle on the longer side

4. Trim a piece of paper to 9cm x 3cm & a piece of card to 9.5cm x 3.5cm
Round the corners of each piece

5. Mat together and attach to Buckle - also adding tape to the RH side

6. On the RH side of your card draw a line across 2cm up from the bottom.
On the LH side of the card draw 2 lines across at 2cm & 6cm up from the bottom
& 1 line vertically 3cm in from the LH edge

 7. Attach the Buckle to the RH side of the card, using the line you drew for placment 

8. Trim a piece of paper to 13.5cm x 13.5cm & mat onto card cut to 14cm x 14cm
Trim another piece of paper to 10cm x 13.5cm & mat onto card cut to 10.5cm x 14cm

9. Add the large panel to the inside back of your card (this will also cover the back of the buckle)

10. Add the smaller panel to the outside front of your card

11. Using the lines on the back of the LH side of the card as a guide, trim out a small window (this will create the slot where you feed the buckle through)

12. Print & colour image. Die cut out using a plain Oval Die

Promarkers used

Skin - Coral, Soft Peach, Oatmeal, Blush
Hair - Cocoa, Raw Sienna, Mustard, Buttercup
Dress, Shoes & Hair Clips -  Maroon, Cardinal, Antique Pink, Dusky Rose, Budding Rose

13. Die cut a Fancy Oval from coloured card

14. Mat together and add to the front of the card (taking care not to add any adhesive where the image covers the slot)

15. Decorate card with embellishments of your choice
To close the card you will push the buckle underneath the image and through the slot

Hope you enjoyed the tutorial
