I can’t believe there is only 5 days left for Sale-A-Bration. Where has the last 2 months gone??? I can’t believe it. There is still so many cards I want to make with these stamps. Some I haven’t event inked yet! I am running out of time. To mark the end of Sale-A-Bration though I thought I would show you a card to countdown to the end.
Here is Day 5 Card. The other week I played around with the new Soda Pop Tops. I think this card is inspired by a card I saw on SplitcoastStampers.
I have used the Vine Embossing Folder but de-bossed it. I think it gives it a different look. The DSP flower is from ‘Patio Party’ and punched with the Blossom Punch. The centre flower is stamped in Raspberry Ripple and the small centre flower is in Midnight Muse. They are from one of the Free Sale-A-Bration sets, ‘Madison Ave’. See the centre of the flower though??? I have used the Soda Pop Tops. This one was flattened in the Big Shot. I will explain this just below. The greeting is from ‘Fabulous Phrases’ and stamped on Whisper White and I have flagged the ends. Some Raspberry Ripple Satin Stitched ribbon finishes off the card.
Flattening the Soda Pop Tops in the Big Shot is easy – and fun!!! You might have seen how to do this elsewhere in Blogland but I will tell you what I did. Here is the recipe I used for the Big Shot.
Platform – No Tabs.
Soda Pop Top (faced Down)
Run all this through your Big Shot. It is quite easy to turn. I have used scrap card because it saves the soda pop top sticking in to the cutting plate. Many blogs I have read haven’t done this step but I think it saves digging it out of the plate. Then again maybe it is OK.
