When I first got my Tag Topper Punch I thought it would look cool to make a fold out card with it. I had seen a couple around my blog travels but wasn’t sure how to go about it. Well I made one AND I have put together a tutorial just for you so you can make one yourself.
Here is some close-ups.
Now on to the Tutorial.
SCALLOP TAG TOPPER PUNCH TRI-FOLD CARD!
1. Cut your base card to 14.8cm x 21cm. (I used Baked Brown Sugar). On the 21cm side score the card at 7cm and 14cm.
2. Slide the edge of your card (long side) in to your Tag Topper Punch. It takes a little wiggling but you can get the card in and line it up in the first scored section in to the punch. You can roughly line the card up between the rectangle shape on the top of the punch where the image of the punch is on. See the photo.
Punch the card. Then move it along to the next scored section. Line it up and then punch again. Repeat for the last section again.
Trim off the excess tabs to level them off.
NOTE: The card does get a little bent when you punch it out but just press over it and when you add the card to the front you don’t notice it.
3. Cut your card mat pieces and whisper white and DSP (designer series paper).
Card mats (I used Crisp Canteloupe) measures 6.6cm x 12.2cm (3 in total).
Whisper White (x2) and DSP piece(x1) 6.2cm x 11.8cm. The DSP is from Venetian Romance.
I stamped one of the Whisper White pieces with the flower from ‘Happy Watercolor’ in Baked Brown Sugar and coloured it with the Aquapainter and inkpad.
To finish the card off I sponged the white card pieces and the DSP with Crisp Canteloupe ink and adhered them to the card. I added some Gold Washi Tape and also some gold sequins over the card (still not sure about these???). Then I tied some Crisp Canteloupe Ruffled ribbon through the holes and tied them off with Linen Thread.
Here it is again – the finished off card.
Do you like it????? Why not go and make one for yourself.
Thanks for taking the time to visit me in your day. I do appreciate it as I know your time is precious. I hope you are inspired.
