Hi Stampers. Last week I shared with you a card that was made using the “tag topper closure” fold.  I got some great feedback on it and decided to make more of them.

This card started with a Melon Mambo card base and the Tag Topper Punch was used to punch both sides – similar to the other card.

For the front, I used a layer of Daffodil Delight CS followed by a layer of the Flowers For Every Season DSP.  It’s tied together with a piece of the Just Jade in-color ribbon.

Inside the card is a layer of Basic White CS.  The sentiment, from the Free As A Bird stamp set, is stamped in the center in Melon Mambo ink. In the upper right corner, I stamped the flower in Memento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  Likewise, I stamped the bird in the lower right corner in Memento Black ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin’ Tip: The actual stamp I used is a row of birds on a branch, but I only wanted one, so I inked up just the end and let the rest of the stamp hang off of the card stock.  I had scrap paper under it to catch any excess ink.
