A File folder card on the Envelope punch board

I have had a couple of requests for a tutorial on how to make the File folder card.
Remember this card?
As we only have 2 weeks left of Saleabration I am using some lovely Sweet Sorbet papers.
You will need:
1 piece of A4 Cardstock cut to 14.9 cm x 27cm
Sweet Sorbet Patterned paper measuring 5.1 x 14 cm
                                                        And 9.5 x 14 cm
Step 1. Score the longest side at 5.5cm and 16.5cm.
2. Stick your patterned paper onto the cardstock. Smaller piece on the small panel, larger piece on the larger scored panel.
3. Using your envelope punch board measure 3" (or 7.5cm) and Punch a notch.
4. Slide it across to the edge and punch a half notch.
Here it is with the designer patterned paper on it. Showing the half notch and 3" measurement.
5. Next we move back to our stampin up cutter to remove one of the tabs.
6. Line up the deepest part of the notch with the groove in your cutter and put your cutting blade in the notch. Slide the blade down and cut off the lower tab.
Here it is after its cut off, showing how it looks with the DSP.
7. Next, we need to fold along the scored lines and add a glimmer paper flower, held on with a dimensional to hold the tab top closed.
Decorating with a couple of punched butterflies and rhinestone jewels.
8. Lastly, you might stamp your greeting in a matching ink. 
I've used Tangerine Tango to match the cardstock colour.
And a piece of gold washi tape or you could use a piece of ribbon.
