Have you seen the Tailored Tag Punch in the Occasions catalog? It's on page 45, #145667. I think it could be easily overlooked.
I'm hoping that this punch makes it into the Annual Catalog. It's really neat. Today I used it in a different way.
I used the punch to add a little interest to this scene from the Waterfront stamp set. It's a little like a puzzle.
The card base is Pool Party 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. It's hard to see, but I did stamp some clouds in the sky using the Craft White ink at the top.
Using Waterfront, stamp a scene on a piece of Whisper White measuring 4 1/2 x 6. The exact size is not that important. I wanted it to be bigger than the card front. The colors I used are Island Indigo, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, and Daffodil Delight.
Start punching at the bottom of the card and work your way up. Punch close to the previous row. As you punch you might want to place your pieces to the side but in order. I added the punch at the very top. It was not part of the original, but it did help to get it centered correctly.
Adhere all the pieces with dimensionals. I did allow the pieces to go beyond the card front. At the end, just turn the card over and trim the pieces to fit.
Wrap Linen Thread around the card three times. I taped it down under where the sentiment piece would go. Add a bow of Linen Thread with a glue dot.
This is the inside of the card. I tend to make cards with lots of stamp sets, but this card only uses the Waterfront stamp set and the Tailored Tag Punch. I love how it turned out. I think it would appeal to men and women.
I made a Facebook Live video on how to make this card. Here it is below.
Thank you for reading my blog today. There is one piece that I did end up having to stamp over. I tried to match it up, but I was a little off. Can you spot it? I'm sure you can.
If you do not have a demonstrator, I would love to be yours. If you need catalogs, just let me know and I'll get them in the mail for you. Need some supplies? Maybe you need that Tailored Tag Punch now! My list is below.
