Hot Pink with Heart

When I saw the Scallop Tag Topper Punch in the new Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog, I knew it would be on my next order!  I love this punch! 


This was a layout at last week's Stamp Stack and I switched up the design a bit using the same colors and elements.

To mat the tag, I cut a piece of the Melon Mambo 1/4" wider and a little longer.  By inserting that piece in the punch from the bottom, I could get a rounded top.  I used the little hole punch dies from the Chalk Talk Framelits set to get the hole in the pink tag to match the white tag.  I hope this makes some sense to those of you reading this.

Addicted to Stamps and More is having an ANYTHING GOES week.

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge says to Have a Heart . I've got that covered.

CAS-ual Fridays

Just what do we mean by that?
CFC127: Create a Clean And Simple project with some sort of element that extends past the edge.
My ribbon goes over the top edge.

Great job using that new tag punch! I think I'll have to put that on my wish list too. Your card looks nice with tulip ef for your border.

I really like this card. I think it is the combo doily and tag, so fun. Is this a regular A2 size card? Or is it smaller? Either way, it is awesome!

The Melon Mambo and the White really make this gorgeous card pop! Love the doily behind the tag. You should also enter this in the Card Concepts challenge which is monochromatic pink ;)
