Ok are you girls ready for the Great tutorial for the File in the middle card ? I am sooo in Love with this cards design and If my Up up upline were here I would have to kiss her .. Thanks so Much for sharing this awesome Card with me Debbie I hope my tutorial does it justice ..
You will need your cutter , bone folder , 1 3/8 sq punch ( or any other solid shape punch you may have ~ circle , scallop etc... ) sticky strip , decorative scissors ( optional ) 2 pieces of card stock . 1 cut at 5 1/2" X 11" and one cut at 5 1/2 "X 4" ( I used green galore for my card today ) and of course your stamps with ink ..
Next apply sticky strip along the inside of your card on the 1" side of your card and then cut your 2nd piece of CS at 4 X 5 1/2 and this is what you should have this is what you should have so far. OK next apply the 4x 51/2 piece on top of the sticky strip so the 1" with sticky strip is on the back side of your card as shown here in the next photo
Ok next you will be using your punch I am using the 1 3/8 sq punch for my froggie card since it is really hard to punch through 2 layers of CS at the same time we will be punching through 1 at a time the 1st punch will be on either side of the mountain peak of center fold . Then once you have your 1st punch pinch middle together and line up your punch and make 2nd punch on the other side panel as shown in the next 2 following photos
Here is what my finished Froggie card looks like on the inside . which is what makes this card sooo awesome cause of what is inside waiting for the receiver of this card to ooo and aaahhhh over .. super cute HUH? This tutorial will also be located on the left side of my blog under Dawns Tutorials for future reference along with the other tutorials I have done .You can click on each photo for a larger view . Here is the other card I posted yesterday to give you another look FOR MY MOM file in the middle card Thanks for stopping by today and peeking in ..I will see you tomorrow .

When trying to stamp your image to line up in your punched out area just make a light pencil line following the punch shape on both sides of your card when you have your image stamped erase the pencil line.. But you all probably already knew that HUH?
Until later ..Happy Stampin!
