Random Card - Buckle/Slot Card

This card is similar to the "Big Buckle" card that is shown on SCS but this one is slightly different. The "belt" strip is smaller and instead of using a the "Word Window Punch" to punch a slot to insert the strip, I cut two vertical slits using a blade. The strip slides through both strips to keep the card closed. The SCS tutorial's strip basically inserts into the punched slot. I made a card a few days ago on Card Inspired that is similar to the SCS Tutorial.

I wanted to create something a little different with this card. I covered the slits with the large Prima flowers because I didn't do a good job cutting the slits (they were a bit crooked). The Prima flower solved my problem.

Card Details:

Stamp: In My Thoughts and Baroque Motif
Paper: Rose Red, Sage Shadow, DCWV designer paper
Ink: Rose Red and Green Galore
Accessories: Target large Prima Flower, Foo-la-la buttons, Ribbon (unknown)

This is the card opened up. I placed a tag to the left panel because I didn't like how the slit appeared on the inside of the card. It didn't look very professional looking so the tag's purpose is to cover it up.
