Torn & Layered Buckle Card


Wow!!!  Love the Medallion Stamp by Stampin’ Up!!!  Totally awesome!!!  There are so many great things you can do with it.  In fact, it’s the top selling stamp out of all Stampin’ Up! sets.

After seeing it displayed at convention in so many beautiful ways… I decided to pull it out and try it.

This card is called a buckle card.  Notice the band in the front… the band pulls out of the punched word window and the small chocolate square then opens to display your message.  Clever… isn’t it!!! I only wish I could say I invented the Buckle card but I didn’t… just designed this card using the Medallion stamp set and layers of torn paper.  Enjoy!

Happy Birthday!

This darling card was designed by my dear Aunt Judy,  who lives in Michigan.

Thank You Aunt Judy for sending me this adorable Birthday Card!!!

I think the pull out tab is so clever.  I haven’t tried it yet but now it’s on  my radar!!!

Aunt Judy also used the Scallop Punch to accent her card.  Very nice!!!  Thanks again and keep those wonderful cards coming 😉

See ya real soon!!!

I just LOVE this card!!!  Tonya made it for her Stamp Club Swap.  Doesn’t the top of the cupcake look like designer series paper?  I thought it was until she shared a new technique with me… the Kissing Technique.  Tonya said you ink one stamp up and then use another stamp to move the ink around… kissing the stamps together.    Beautiful Card Tonya!!!    Keep up the GREAT work.!!!  Thank You for making one for all of us!!!
