The first card was made using the new 2015-2017 In Colors.
|Stampin' Up! Supplies:|
Stamps: Bordering Blooms. Cardstock: Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder. Ink: Tip Top Taupe. Ribbon: Tip Top Taupe 1" Dotted Lace Trim. Tools: Triple Banner Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Tear & Tape Adhesive.
- I embossed the Tip Top Taupe cardstock with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder. I inserted the cardstock about 2/3 of the way into the embossing folder so that the top stayed smooth.
- I liked the flower centers from the Bordering Blooms stamp set, but using the whole border strip was too cumbersome. I carefully cut one bloom off of the stamp. Since it's a polymer stamp, it's easy to line back up when I want to use the whole strip.
- The flag edges were done with the Banner Triple punch. The strip is narrower than the smallest guide in the punch, so I just made sure the strip was centered and it worked perfectly.
Thanks for visiting! Come back in a few days to see my next swap card.
