I’ve been waiting for my (Stampin’ Up! exclusive) Top Note Sizzix Bigz Die for what seems like forever, and yesterday it finally arrived! Just in time for me to design a card for the SCS shoebox swap I’m attending in Reisterstown, MD today.
The colors in the Frosty Day Designer Series Paper are not your traditional Christmas colors, but I do love orange, so I had to order it. I trimmed the Frosty top note die on its perforated dashes and cut another top note out of Chocolate Chip card stock as a mat. I adhered a 1-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Kiwi Kiss card stock at 1″ from the top edge of the card behind the top note. Then I wrapped the wide satin ribbon around the card front and tied it into a big bow.
The Cute & Curly saying was first stamped with Tangerine Tango ink on Whisper White card stock and punched out. Then it was stamped again, with Chocolate Chip ink on Bashful Blue card stock, and the oval was cut out with scissors (neither oval punch is quite right for this image).
Thanks for stopping by!
