Pullout tag card tutorial - Trimcraft "Forever Free" paper

You can follow the steps below to create this pocket style card with a pull out tag, using Trimcraft's "Forever Free" papers and some Dovecraft embellishments. I hope you enjoy making it :)

 You will need:
Trimcraft First Edition "Forever Free" 8x8 paper pad
Trimcraft First Edition Sentiment dies FEDIE269
Dovecraft 5x7 square aperture card
Dovecraft A4 Heat Resistant Acetate
Dovecraft A4 Luxury Heavyweight White Card
Dovecraft "Make a Wish" paper doilies
Dovecraft "Sweet Moments" Accordion Stickers
Dot & Dab double sided tape
Dovecraft Crystal Glitter Glue
Simply Creative Ivory 3mm Pearls
Hole Punch
Die cutting Machine

How to make it:
 1. Cut a piece of orange patterned paper measuring 12cm x 17cm and attach to the card front with double sided tape. Turn inside out and cut out the aperture from the paper with a craft knife, following the lines of the aperture in the card.

 2. Attach a 12cm x 17cm piece of floral patterned paper to the inside right of the card with double sided tape and add another layer of double sided tape around the two sides and the bottom to form a pocket when closed. Mark the centre of the top of the card front and remove a small semi circle of the card and paper together.

 3. Cut a 9cm x 9cm square of acetate and attach behind the aperture with double sided tape.

4. Cut out the Happy Birthday from the paper pad and glue to the inside of the card, using the aperture on the front as a guide to centre it.

 5. Close the front over and adhere to the double sided tape to form a pocket. Cut a 9.5cm x 15cm rectangle of white card and attach a 9cm x 14.5cm of stag patterned paper with double sided tape. Punch a hole at the top. Make a tassel from twine and attach with a loop of twine through the punched hole.

6. Cover the pother side of the insert with  floral paper. Cut out the floral tag from the paper pad and glue to the bottom.

 7.  Cut a 4.5cm x 6cm piece of floral paper and snip out a v at the bottom to form a tail. Glue below the apertureCut a doily in half, fold a tiny piece over at the top to conceal the raw edge and glue over the tail.

8. Die cut the "Celebrate"from white card, glue onto pink paper and cut out. Glue to the top of the aperture. Add a accordion heart to the doily.

9. Add a fine line of glitter glue around the aperture and around the cut out semi circle at the top. Glue a length of twine to each side of the heart and some tiny pearls to the doily.
