This is the file folder card I used in my tutorial. I embossed it and used acrylic paint and Utee over it.
I used a smaller file folder and used distress inks on it and splattered it with water.
I just glued down one side of the little file folder, so I would still be able to write a note on the other side. For the lines I just dipped a metal ruler in ink and stamped it on there. On the edge I just used some washi tape.
Cut an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 piece of cardstock. Then score at 4 1/4.
Then cut 1/2 in. off on on side.
Then mark 1/2 in. along both insides. For the front tab, measure 3 in. down and mark on the line.
Then for the other side mark 3 in. up from the bottom.
Now take your punch and line it up for the outside notch on the line.
Now take your punch and try to center the 3 in. mark and punch.
And then cut the right strip off.
Here is the other side.
This is what it looks like after you punched it.
Then just cut it along the line.
There is your file folder card.
All you have to do is to erase the lines.
I hope this helped. It took me a while to figure this one out. But it works great. I just didn't wanted to invest in an envelope punch board since I have the Martha Stewart one. Have fun creating.
I just used the paperclip to hold the card shut while I took the picture.
On the tag I just used distress inks and splattered some water on it.
I will make a short tutorial in a few days to show how I used the word window punch to make this card, since I don't have a envelope punch board.
