Keeping card lining in place for motion cards

Hi Everyone,

For those of you who were wondering how i kept the lining of my "Up and Away" card in place, here is my secret.

First of all, you will need one of these. I purchased mine from Stampin' Up (no longer available unfortunately) so if you don't have one and can't find one elsewhere you'll have to improvise.

Next you will need to punch the lining like so....

Next you will need to create a strip on the inside of the card. Like this.....

This strip inside the card is only glued at the two ends. I left the middle around the half circle that you see unglued. The reason for this is because the little tongue that I created in the previous photo is going to slip under this strip and that is what holds the lining closed.

To determine the placement of this strip, I slid the strip in behind the tongue before gluing it in place. I made my strip white to match the inside of my card but the white was visible when I slid the tongue underneath so I punched another half circle from the same pretty paper that I used for my lining and after the strip was glued in place and the tongue sild underneath, I was able to position the half circle to hide the white.

So this is what it looks like closed. Just slip the tongue under the strip as shown in this photo. Caution, don't place the strip so that it fits too tightly or the tongue will tear (as mine did) when trying to slide it under the strip. I had to remove the strip and add another one that wasn't so snug to prevent it from tearing further..

If I haven't done a good job at explaining this, I would be willing to do a video tutorial on the entire card including how to secure the lining closed so the spinning hot air balloon can spin.

Hope this helps. :)
