BIRTHDAY LATCH CARD
This is always a fun card to make and to send! It looks difficult to make (to the non-cardmaker) but really is quite simple.
First I chose some coordinating dsp for the different sections and cut them to size. After adhering them in place, I stamped the saying and the greeting and attached them to the front pieces as shown. The latch piece was taped down to the inside of the card before the dsp was glued over it.
To position the white piece on the inside, I first used temporary tape to hold it in place on the back of the front rectangle. Then I added tape to the back and pressed it down onto the inside of the card so that it would be hidden from the front of the card. Once secured to the inside, I separated it from the front piece and rubbed off the temporary adhesive.
