Hostess Club-2.0

 Hello Stampers!  Wow hostess club was yesterday and was it fun!  Yes!  Today I'm sharing the second of our two projects.  This one also uses a tag Topper Punch and the Happy Watercolor Stamp Set.  Sadly the Crochet Trim is on the retiring list.  Here are the instructions I made for my version of this Tab closure card.

Cut card stock for base at 8.5 x 11
Score at 3 5/8
1 Vanilla panel 2.5 x 5
1 Brown sugar mat  2.75 x 5.25
1vanilla panel 3.75 x 5
1 Brown sugar mat 4 x 5.25

Punch a tag topper out of the center of one of the sides of the card
Mark where the punch will need to be on the opposite edge of the card
Feed the second edge into the punch and line up the pencil marks so you can see where you need to punch
Line up the divot on either side of the punch with the channel on the paper trimer and cut away excess card stock.  Score the tab that is on the longer side of the card.  Fold over and line up the tabs.
Stamp and embellish as desired.

On inside panel you can mask off 1 ¼ inch of the right side and randomly stamp and sponge to create a decorative edge behind the tabs.
