Good morning! My laptop had been grumbling at me for the past couple of days about updates, which I had been ignoring, but last night it refused to upload my camera photos, so I accepted the inevitable, updated, restarted, and went to bed!
This morning the cold/sinus thing is still with me. I feel better, but am debating visiting a clinic to get some meds. The left side of my face is still full of junk!
I know I am feeling better because I sat down and stamped this last night. It just made me happy!
Next to Christmas cards, birthday cards are my favorite to make, and this one was pretty quick and easy! Cards with closures made with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch are very trendy right now. I made this one is a bit easier with a "faux closure". Here's how I did it:
I started with Gumball Green cardstock 4" x just a hair less than 2":
I punched both ends with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch:
I cut the punched strip apart, making one piece 1 1/2" long and the other 2 1/4" long. I added Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of each piece as shown:
After adhering the pieces to my card front I tied a 12" piece of Raspberry Ripple 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon through the slots of the punched ends.
Inside I used more of the Birthday Basics Designer Paper and a Very Vanilla strip punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I stamped a sentiment from the Photopolymer stamp set, Bombs Away Birthday with Raspberry Ripple ink.
We are nearing the end of Sale-a-bration (ends March 31st!) AND we are also nearing the end of the current Annual Catalog. I'm awful about hoarding Designer Paper, but this year I'm trying to use more of it up before it retires. You will be seeing LOTS more Designer Paper used on my creations and inside the envelopes from now on!
