Hello and welcome to our August Monthly Blog Hop! We thank you for joining us for our monthly blog hop this month. Our theme this month is All About Punches, highlighting all the punches we have in our Annual and Mini Catalog. We have talented Independent Stampin' Up! ® Demonstrators from around the world taking part this month to show you wonderful products and suites from our catalogs. You may have joined me from Katie's blog and their project was wonderful.
I have chosen to use the Tailored Tag punch from the Annual catalog for my punch of choice this month for my masculine birthday card. I feel this is such a versatile punch and can be used for so many sentiments and greetings in our catalogs. I used the stamp set Many Mates for this card.
To start I punched out numerous pieces of a print of DSP from In Good Taste. You could use numerous patterns but I chose one piece of paper. I punched way more than needed but wanted choices of patterns. I then laid them out on a layer of Mossy Meadow cardstock cut at 4" x 5 1/4" starting in the middle and working out. I didn't adhere anything at this point, I just lined them up how I wanted. I left a thin border of the green showing between each one. Once happy, I then used Tombow liquid glue to adhere them, again working out from the middle. I trimmed the excess of once all were glued down.
I took the mossy meadow layer and added it to a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" piece of Soft Suede. I then adhered that to my card base of crumb cake which is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4". I stamped the sentiment from Many Mates on Crumb Cake and punched it out with the punch as well.
For my inside layer I used a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla and stamped my sentiment in Soft Suede. I took 3 more of my punched pieces of DSP and lined them on the bottom, and cut the excess off as well. And then adhered the layer to my card base.
