Create a Pull Tab Card with Shellie
Shellie loves mechanical cards!  Anything that pulls, pops, or moves is something special. 
 She decided to make a pull tab Save the Date Kissing Couple card for her project today.





Materials needed
White, Black and Purple Cardstock
Green Suede Cardstock
Washi Tape
Vellum Sentiment
Black Felt Pen



I started out by cutting out the svg file "Couple in Heart" downloaded from openclipart.org. 
I detached the heart from the figures, and cut out just the figures.



I picked a square greeting card image from my images, loaded it into Design Space and added windows for the pull tabs


. I used the felt pen to write in the sentiment and date on a separate insert card and on the pull tabs.( I decided against the heart flourish that you see at the top of the purple card.)




I then flipped the card over and slipped the pull tabs in the card and placed the stoppers in the correct position.  



To see a video tutorial of how I did this go here:

I  assembled the card by attaching the white insert behind the front of the card, and then folding the card in half and gluing it together. I embellished the guy and the gal,  and used glitter washi tape at the top to give the card some bling.  I attached a vellum sentiment between the two figures.



Pull the tabs and you have a kissing couple!
Go on, Craft on!
