Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – a dotty time with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch

At last week’s Card & Cuppa session, I created a project that centred on a brand new product from the Annual Catalogue – Delightful Tag Topper Punch.

The main colour is one of the new In Color 2019-2021 Collection, Pretty Peacock. It’s teamed with various shades of green, Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sea Foam.

Using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch, a 2″ strip of cardstock was neatly shaped. Corners were then rounded using the Detailed Trio Punch.

Dots from the Gallery Grunge Stamp Set and tone-on-tone stamping give the project more depth.

1/2″, 1″ and 1 1/2″ Circle Punches were used and the circles were placed on the card.

It was then time to layer various shapes on top of the tag. As the shape from the Timeless Label Punch wasn’t quite wide enough, it was chopped in half and hidden by the sentiment!

Co-ordinating Scalloped Linen Ribbon is added and tied together using a length of Baker’s Twine.

The tag is added to the project using Dimensionals to lift if off the page.

Finally, the sentiment from Vibrant Vases Stamp Set is added. You’ll see that even though the tag is at an angle, the sentiment is straight to the card. I think this adds to the overall design of the project.

This project attracted lots of comments on how else it could be used, different colours, for a Christmas Card, etc. It’s lovely that it inspired additional ideas.
