One of the newest techniques that have come down the pike will include using our new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I love when one of my colleagues figure out a new way to use our tools to make a more creative project.
Here are some samples of some cards made with this technique. Note: You can use the idea for landscape as well as portrait. When designing, be sure to leave just a hint of what can be found when the card is opened.
Above are just some of my desighns but here is a video from another Demo Dee Slater that explains just how this technique is done.
1. Mark center on both 5-1/2″ sides of card base.
2. Slide into Scallop Tag Topper Punch with mark side down so you can see when you turn punch over. Line up mark with center and punch. Repeat for the opposite side.
3. Using paper trimmer line up to cut off excess on either side of tag punch. Repeat for the opposite side.
4. Using the trimmed edge line up at 4-1/4″ mark and score.
5. Turn card 180 degrees and score tag where cut edge is.
6. Adhere 5-1/4″ x 4″ layer to card inside.
7. On the inner 5″ x 3-3/4″ layer, stamp inside greeting using , keeping to left side so it won’t be seen when card is closed (this will give you a chance to use the other side if you mess up).
8. Adhere inside layer to inside .
9. Embellish as you wish
11. For front of card cut 5-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ along 5-1/4″ right side . Adhere to front panel (you should have a slight border of the base card exposed.
12. Adhere DSP 5″x 2-1/8″ to base card.Embellish!
