I’ve been seeing fabulous cards posted all over Pinterest that use the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch from Stampin’ Up! for the closure. They are so easy to make! I found the instructions in this video from Miriam Castanho Bollinger and I used the same measurements and punch techniques to create my card base. And just in case you were wondering, the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch is back in stock at Stampin’ Up! and is shipping out to those of you who’ve got it on backorder. :)
My card design was inspired by the Mojo Monday 337 sketch.
I started by creating creating the Basic Black card base using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch as shown in Miriam Castanho Bollinger’s video. Then I adhered a strip of Sweet Sorbet DSP (Sale-a-bration Item) to the left panel of the card base with SNAIL.
I adhered another panel of Sweet Sorbet DSP to a panel of Basic Black card stock with SNAIL, then adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I inked up the arrow images from the Petal Parade stamp set (Sale-a-bration Item) with Pool Party ink, stamped them off once on scrap paper, then stamped them on a Whisper White panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Perfect Pennants stamp set (wood mount and clear mount), using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to help with placement, in VersaMark Ink, sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder, then heat embossed it. Then I colored the border image with my Stampin’ Write Markers and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig again to stamp it above and below the sentiment.
I adhered the sentiment panel to a Basic Black panel, then to the card front with SNAIL and I adhered one of the cork flowers from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack (Sale-a-bration Item) to the card front.
I stamped a Whisper White panel inside the card with the arrow image from the Petal Parade stamp set in Pool Party ink. I used the stamping off technique to decrease the intensity of the color and I pulled out my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig again to help with placement if the images.
Then I tied the card closed with some of the Pool Party Baker’s Twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack. I added this photo to show that both sides of the card have been punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the Baker’s Twine holds the card closed.
