Snailed It Tag Pull Out Card, Cards that Move!

The Snail Tag card is easy (truly!) and super fun.

I love the "secret message" that pops out as you pull the tag.  This message could be "you snailed it" or happy birthday, or you are amazing, or thank you! A versatile card. I'm on FB Live today 6pm April 14 and I'll put a link to that video here.

Click here to see the video


5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Card Base

3-1/2" x 4 1/4" Designer Series Paper (DSP)

2 x 5 ¾ Tag score at 1 ½ and 2” use tag topper for the top of the card

2 ½ x 2 ½ whisper white

“postage stamp” die in Coastal Cabana

1 ¾ x 2 whisper white for the “secret message”


Inside the card: designer paper 1 x 4

Outside the envelope designer paper 1 x 4 ¼


Stamp your greeting on the small white piece ensuring the greeting is parallel to the top which is 1 ¾ (and 2” long).


Take the DSP and create a hole with a punch or your trimmer that is 2” long and ¼” wide about 1” from the right side of the paper and about 1” from top and bottom of the DSP.


Insert your tag – it will be loose.

Add tear n tape along the score line that is ½ wide

Fold the tag closed, adhere the front embellishment (square with the snail) ensuring the left edge of the square is close to the edge of the tag.


Add the stamped “secret message” to the tag that is at the front of the card. Add a piece of tear tape to the back of this message and secure to the front.  The front flips, NOT the message part.


Tag is now secured ONLY with the front tear n tape below the message.

Put dimensionals on the back of the DSP top and bottom NOT middle and add to card front.

Stamp inside your card.

This is an easy card to make but instructions are much easier by video!

I hope you watch the video -- or don't hesitate to ask me questions!

happy crafting MaryKate
