Scallop Tag Topper Card

Click on image for closer look.

We made this card in my April classes -- what fun we had using the new Scallop Tag Topper Punch!!!

Rather than trying to tell you how to make this card, I've added links below to several different You Tube tutorials showing how to make this card.  (Who'da thunk there would be so many different ways to make this simple card?!) - Deb Valder shows you how to make this card, and shows you a few other cute ideas for using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. - Dee Slater has another way to mark where to make your initial punches for this card. - Diane Dimich has a totally different way of punching the ends -- a time saver because she punches both ends at the same time -- eliminating the need for any measuring.

So . . . pick the technique you like, and go with it!

Following are the materials list for the items I used to make my version of the card and the instructions for finishing off the card once the card base is made:

Stamp Set:
* Happy Watercolor (Celebrate the Everyday Catalog -- Occasions 2014 -- available through June 1)

* Soft Suede card stock (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"; 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" for circle punch)
* Very Vanilla card stock (5-1/4" x 4" for inside; 2-1/2" x 1-1/2" for label punch)
* Tangerine Tango card stock (2-1/2" x 2-1/2" for scallop circle punch)
* Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper ("DSP") (5-1/4" x 2-1/4")

* Soft Suede Classic Stampin' Pad
* Tangerine Tango Classic Stampin' Pad

Accessories and Tools:
* 2-1/2" Circle Punch
* 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch
* Decorative Label Punch
* Stampin' Sponge
* Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon
* Adhesives:  SNAIL Adhesive, Stampin' Dimensionals

(Unless otherwise indicated, SNAIL Adhesive is used throughout.)

1.  Make card base from Soft Suede card stock following video instructions.

2.  Punch 2-1/2" Circle from Soft Suede card stock; punch 2-3/8" Scallop Circle from Tangerine Tango card stock.  Use Soft Suede ink to stamp "you make me HAPPY" on Very Vanilla card stock; punch out with Decorative Label punch.

3. Use Stampin' Sponge to apply Soft Suede ink around edges of 5-1/4" x 4" Very Vanilla card stock, 5-1/4" x 2-1/4" DSP, and all three punched shapes.

4. Adhere DSP to front flap of card base; adhere 2-1/2" Circle over DSP; adhere 2-3/8" Scallop Circle over 2-1/2" Circle.  Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere Decorative Label over 2-3/8" Scallop Circle.

5.  For inside of card, use Tangerine Tango ink to stamp "paint scribble" image.  NOTE:  Start at the bottom and DO NOT reink the stamp between each of the three images.  This will create the fading out toward the top look.  Use Soft Suede ink to stamp flower image over paint scribbles.

6. Close card and, referring to first photo above, thread ribbon through the slots on each flap and tie in a bow on front of card.

Hope you have fun with this card!!!!
