A Christmas buckle card featuring the Beautiful You stamp set and Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder
I jazzed up the edge of the buckle with a silver frond cut with the Beautiful Boughs die set
Buckle Folds are an extension of the Joy Fold and have been around for ..... years!  But, despite having made umpteen joy fold cards I had never gone the extra little distance and created a buckle fold ... until now!

The image from Beautiful You is coloured with Real Red and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  For the first card I dressed up her hat and hemline with a line of glue pressed into Ice Stampin' Glitter.  I'd received my bottle of Snowfall Accents Puff Paint by the time I made the second card (below) so I used that and then added some of the Ice glitter on top for sparkle.

Measurements and Method:

  • Glue the small tag of the buckle to the back of the inside layer.  
  • Glue the inside layer to the inside of the card.
  • Glue the front layer to the front of the card.
  • Position the Classic Label Punch in the middle of the card as far from the cut edge as possible and punch.
  • Glue the stamped panel to the larger layer.
  • Glue the decorative square panel to the buckle - allowing space for freedom of the buckle mechanism
Close the card by crossing the buckle across the front of the card and slotting the end through the punched space.

Thank you for visiting - I'll have more ideas for buckle cards in my next post.
'Til next time!
