Tag Topper Punch Side Fold Card.

Have you seen this style of card yet? They are everywhere. You can find lots of examples on Pinterest if you put in a Search for "Tag Topper Punch Stampin Up".

I have been dying to try one and finally had some time last night. It was very quick and easy to do. There goes my favourite two words again! hehe.

It opens on the side by undoing the ribbon.

Did you notice I layered up some flowers on the side using:
Mixed Bunch, Flower Shop and Petite Petals Stamps and Punches. They go well together.
The flowers are all stamped in Pacific Point ink onto either Soft Sky or Whisper White card stock. I added some diamantes as a focal point.

Here is a close up of the side closure for you. I used some 1/8 taffeta ribbon in black. Thinking of You comes from the Wetlands Stamp Set. I have also used the Modern Mosaic Emboss Folder on the Basic Black piece of card stock.

The butterfly is stamped using the Papillion Potpourri Stamp set and matching punch. I have stamped it in Pacific Point onto vellum and placed a whisper white butterfly underneath. You need to let the ink dry on the vellum or use a heat gun to dry it faster.

Cardstock used:
Base card - Soft Sky
Basic Black ( embossed with Modern Mosiac Emboss Folder)
Modern Medley designer Paper (on the side piece)
Whisper white and Pacific Point

Ink: Pacific Point, Coastal Cabana (Thinking of You)

I am in the middle of putting together another one of these cards with a quick photo tutorial for you as well so pop back again soon to say hello.

Mothers Day.
Did you have a happy Mother's Day? I did. Lovely breakfast and gifts then off to Mt. Tamborine in the afternoon to visit a local Craft Show and a nice little bush walk while we were there.
A cockatoo came to say Happy Mother's Day in the garden while I was having breakfast.
Mt. Tamborine is in the Gold Coast Hinterland and 40 mins drive from our home . They get plenty of rainfall up there so the gardens and surrounding bush always look lush and pretty.

It was a beautiful sunny day, hot in the sun and cool in the shade.

Thank you for stopping by. Come back soon. Vx
