Today I am sharing how to make a Corner Latch card.  Thank you to LeeAnn Greff for sharing a tutorial on how to make one.

Corner Latch Card

Corner Latch Card

Products Used:

  • Stamp Sets: Hand Penned Petals; Create With Friends
  • Paper: Blushing Bride; Basic White; Vellum; Highland Heather; Hand Penned Designer Series Paper
  • Ink: Highland Heather
  • Other: Tasteful Labels Dies; Blushing Bride 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon (retired); Stampin’ Dimensionals; Tear & Tape; Multipurpose Glue or Stampin Seal; Stampin’ Cut & Emboss

Cutting Instructions

  • Card :11″ x 4-1/4″.  Score at 5-1/2″, trim off 2-3/4″ (this piece will be used on the front flap)
  • Designer Series Paper: 2 pieces of 2-1/2″ x 4″
  • Corner: 2-1/4″ square, cut in half on the diagonal You will end up with two triangles – save the second one for later
  • Inside: 4″ x 5-1/4″

Assembling the card is pretty intuitive.  To make the corner use Stampin’ Dimensionals on one of the triangles, place one on each corner.  Adhere to the card.  I used LeeAnn’s suggestion and adhered the triangle pocket first, then adhered the front panel so I could place it in a way that the corner just tucked into the pocket.  Another suggestion – adhere the front panel well because it will be tucked in and out of the corner pocket.  I used Tear & Tape to adhere the ribbon to the card – worked like a charm and did not add additional bulk.  I also love the way the vellum flower softens the appearance of the Highland Heather flower underneath.

I just LOVE the Hand Penned Designer Series Paper.  The floral images are delicate-looking, and the colors used go together beautifully and are so summery: Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Cinnamon Cider, Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Highland Heather, Mint Macaron, Misty Moonlight, Pale Papaya, and Pool Party.  And – there are lots of embellishments that go well with the paper.

I hope you will give this style of card a try – it is easy to make and creates a different type of greeting card.
