Nip and Tuck card

January 4, 2013

Last week I found a link to a tutorial on Sudsol (for demos only) to make a Nip and Tuck card.  I had to play around a little to get it to work on a standard metric card.  I also decided to cut mine down and make it a layer for a card front.

0142My base card is Night of Navy and I used Very Vanilla card to make the Nip and Tuck.   Basically you cut two sides of a triangle shape and fold the card back onto itself.   I embossed mine using the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder.  I wrapped the embossed card with Night of Navy 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain ribbon before attaching it to the card front.  I stamped the ferris wheel image from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Feeling Sentimental (love it) onto Very Vanilla card using Night of Navy ink, attached it to Night of Navy card and then to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped “celebrate” which is also from the Feeling Sentimental stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Night of Navy ink, punched it using the Modern Label Punch and attached it to a Night of Navy Wide Oval.  The greeting is attached to the card front over the ribbon using dimensionals.  I also tied another length of ribbon through the ribbon already attached.

0152Then I decided to pierce some holes in the Night of Navy card to frame the Very Vanilla card – great idea – but I haven’t lined it up too well.  Never mind!  I think it is important that we realise that a card can still look good even though it isn’t “perfect”.

Bye for now, Kris.

    You have used this stamp to a real advantage to showcase it Kris. I’m sure this set called y name as soon as I opened the catalogue, but yet to use it
