       Tailored Tag Punch (145667)





Cutting & Scoring:  

       Using the Sahara Sand Buffalo Check Patterned Paper from the Peaceful Prints punch five diamonds with the Tailored Tag Punch

       Using the Evening Evergreen Print from the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP punch four diamonds with the Tailored Tag Punch

       Ushing the Be Dazzling specialty Paper punch three diamonds with the Tailored Tag Punch.






       For the sentiment I wanted a special saying, so I printed it on the vellum with my computer.  If you do this be sure to give the ink plenty of drying time to avoid shmearing.

       If you are stamping a sentiment on use StazOn ink and stamp on the vellum again give this time to dry.

       Use the layering circles to cut the sentiment and then use the coordinating scalloped circle to cut a backing layer out of the Be Dazzling specialty Paper.  The sizes will vary depending on your sentiment.

       When gluing the vellum on I used my liquid glue, applying the glue carefully behind the printed words, to avoid having the glue show through the vellum.

       Use both ribbon colors to apply a loop to the back of the sentiment and attach with scotch tape.

       Measure your picture, add 1/8” to the top and side, this will be the size of your Evergreen mat.

       Measure your picture, add ¼” to the top and side, this will be the size of you Sahara Sand mat.

       Assemble picture and mats

       Glue your diamonds on the left side of your 12x12 base as shown.

       Use dimensional to apply your matted picture.

       I stacked two dimensionals on top of each other to give extra height to the sentiment and attached it above the picture as shown.

       Add the Gold Metallic Pears as desired.

            Stampin' Dimensionals can add so much detail to your cards.  This card can be completed with out Stampin' Dimensionals but look how they make the top layer, the flower and words really come to life.  If you haven't tried adding some dimension to your cards grab some Stampin Dimensionals from my store and see how they bring new life to your cards.
