Front Flap Card

by Kelly Acheson

Create a panel card with a smaller front flap.


  • Cardstock (Stampin’ Up!® supplies used here: Poppy Parade, Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Country Club Designer Series Paper, Basic Black used here)

  • Adhesive (Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin' Dimensionals used here)

  • Other supplies as needed to complete the project: (SU supplies used here: Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Poppy Parade Ink, Starburst Punch, 2" Circle Punch, Clubhouse stamp set, Golf Club Dies, Country Club Designer Series Paper, Absolutely Argyle 3D Embossing Folder, Country Club Twine Combo Pack, Paper Trimmer, Snips, Take Your Pick Tool, Piercing Mat, Bone Folder, Die Cutting Machine)


  1. Step 1

    Prepare an A2 panel (4 1/4' x 5 1/2") with a layering panel (4” x 5 1/4"). The layering panel in the sample was embossed.

  2. Step 2

    Cut a 3 1/4"x 8 1/2" layer of cardstock. Score it at 4 1/4" and adhere it to the card front where shown.

  3. Step 3

    Adhere a 4" x 3" layer of paper to the front panel of the folded cardstock.

  4. Stamp a second 4" x 3" layer of cardstock and adhere it to the inside panel of the folded cardstock.

  5. Step 4

    Embellish the card front as desired.

    For the sample, a 2” die cut circle was layered and popped up with Dimensionals, then embellished with themed die cuts. The sentiment was stamped onto a banner die cut. Black twine was wrapped around the front panel and then tied in a knot.

  6. Step 5

    Create a coordinating envelope. Glue a 2 1/2" x 6" piece of designer series paper to the flap of an envelope.

  7. Trim off excess by using the envelope flap as a guide.

  8. Step 6

    Complete the project.

Desiree, it's an A2 card.

Just a hint - I found it easy to make 4 cards at once, cutting one sheet into quarters for the bases, and then a second sheet across in 4 strips, 2.75" x 8.5" for the front flap. My cards are in the gallery!

great layout. I modified it with an Ivory A2 base card, 4 x 5 1/4 embossed layer; 3 3/4 x 7 3/4 flap so it was flush with the 4 x 5 1/4 layer; 3 x 3 3/4 DSP on outside flap and 3 x 3 3/4 ivory inside flap; 10" ribbon wrapped at top of flap tied into a bow and a label punch fro front sentiment. Definitely adding to my favorite layouts
