Today, I have a tutorial posted on scs that you can view –> here <–. If you have any questions, email me and I’ll try to assist you the best I can.
I first fell in love with this pop-up card way back in April of 2007 at the Stampin’ Up! Virginia Beach Regionals. I came home the next day and had to give it a try. I also made this Ahoy, Matey one for my convention swaps last year (yep, crazy for making about 60 of them lol).
How cute! Such a nice surprise on the tag once pulled out. With this image from Eastern Blooms stamp set, you can add as much detail as your heart desires….or leave it stamped as is. Either was is simply beautiful. What I did: stamped the image in Kiwi Kiss on Whisper White CS; stamped image again in Rose Red and So Saffron ink on Whisper White CS; Yes…cut out the tiny flowers; adhere over your Kiwi Kiss stamped base image; apply any details to the centers of the flowers. For the So Saffron Flowers, I added orange beads from Orange Bead Duo. For the Rose Red Flowers, I punched rose red cardstock circles with my 1/8″ & 1/16″ Circle Punches, adhered, and added Crystal Effects over them. I also had to add a flower in the sentiment for coordination.
Here is an upclose pic of the tag
Why I love this card is because it folds flat so it can be mailed. And it is such a nice surprise to pull the ribbon and reveal a stamped tag….and it is free standing so it sits up for displaying. How nice would these be if they were personalized and placed at a table as place settings to tell your company where to sit (ie: wedding or a holiday gathering/dinner). And they get to take the card with them.
I would love to see what you create with this tutorial. There is a gallery on scs that I will be browsing.
Also, don’t forget about my World Card Making Day Stamp Camp. Information –> here <–.
