One of a Kind Pull Card

I hope everyone is enjoying summer where they are. Here in Wisconsin we are having the coolest summer on record. Today it hit 75 degrees and I am a happy camper. Not very hot but warm enough not to wear a jacket. I love hot weather and try to get outside and enjoy it. Bob and I went for a long walk today and got some exercise and it's a wonderful time to talk with each other too.

Well, on to the card. Today I have a pull card. Like anything else we do at stamping at first it may look complicated but once you know how to do it it is very simple. The one thing I will stress when you are making a pull card is to use sticky strip or sometime when someone is pulling that tab it might just fall apart.So this is how you do it.
  • First on a piece of cs 4 " x 5 1/4" you stamp a bg on it. Here sage shadow cs is used and rose red ink
  • cut out the sides and the bottom of a rectangle right in the center. That measures 2 1/2" x 3 1/4"
  • punch half a circle out in the middle at the top
  • Then score in 3 places. One at the top of the rectangle, another in the middle and the last one is just 1/2" from the bottom. Only as wide as the cut out part
  • Cut a tab which measures 2 1/2" x 5" in basic black
  • Using the tag corner punch on the tab cut the corners off
  • Punch a hole right in the center with 1/4" punch and add ribbon
  • Attach the tab to the bottom of the rectangle on the inside using sticky strip
  • Put sticky strip on the bottom and both sides of the whole piece
  • adhere it to a darker piece of cs in this case rose red.
  • Stamp your main image on whisper white cs 2 1/4" square
  • Back it with sage shadow cs 2 1/2" square, then black cs 2 3/4" square
  • Pull the tab straight up and surprise, the message is revealed.
  • I used a stamp a ma jig to center the sentiment just right.
I am working on doing a tutorial for this card so stay tuned. And thanks for stopping by At Paula's Place.
