HAPPY BIRTHDAY WITH CHEVRONS!

When I made this card I wanted to show a different way of using the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. This is such a versatile punch.  With a strip of Whisper White card you can punch both ends of the strip and create fancy “holes” for your ribbon to thread through.  I was really trying to come up with a fancy term for these little “holes” but there was nothing!!!  Anyway, you get the idea.

I sponged around the tag with Summer Starfruit. The greeting is from ‘Perfectly Penned’. After threading through some Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin ribbon I layered it all on a piece of DSP from Birthday Basics and layered this on a Summer Starfruit card mat.  Then it was all adhered to a Raspberry Ripple Card base.  I punched out some chevrons with the Chevron Border punch from Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit and Gumball Green.

Now these colours will be retiring very soon.  I would suggest stocking up NOW on the card, ink, ink refills and ribbon.  They go SO QUICKLY!!  Don’t wait until the retirement list is announced in a month or 2 to order them because I wouldn’t like you to miss out.

School holidays at the moment.  Although we haven’t gone away anywhere it has been a nice family time together but there has not been a lot of stamping time. I just sneak a little time here and there. I am working away at my Convention swaps which is just one month away.  YAY!! You will have to wait to see these swaps though.  Let me just say, why do I always choose involved cards to make as my swaps!!!

Have a great day/night wherever you are on this lovely planet 🙂

  1. Ooh! Thanks for the great idea for my Chevron Punch which I’m not using often. I love the colors like that in a row and your double tag end! Too smart!
