Round Tab Window Card

What a nice surprise to come home from the cruise and find one of my cards posted on Stamper's Showcase (#8503). Stamper's Showcase is one of my favorite features of the demonstrator website because every day, 6-8 new projects made by demonstrators are featured on the showcase. You can look at it each day or go back and search by stamp set name. It's a fabulous resource for ideas, and I check it religiously every day.

Did you notice -- I didn't use ANY stamps on this card!? The sentiment is a rub-on (from the Sale-a-bration series Love & Happiness). Using rub-ons on ribbon is a piece of cake. They go right on and still look crisp and clean.

Supplies: Love & Happiness Rub-Ons (SAB), Soft Sky & Whisper White cardstock, Fall Flowers Designer Series Paper, Accents & Elements: Flower Fusion, White grosgrain ribbon, Fire Rhinestone Brads, Scallop Circle Punch, Round Tab Punch, Metal Edge Tags

Start with a 6" x 6" piece of textured Soft Sky cardstock and fold in half. Insert the Round Tab Punch on the top of the card, centered the top of card front. Punch.

Turn the card and insert the Round Tab Punch again from the side, over the area you just punched. (See photo.) Line up the curve of the round tab on Punch with the edges of the round tab on the cardstock. Punch.

  • The result is a 2" Circle window at the top of your card.

  • Adhere a 3x3 piece of Designer Series paper to the bottom of the card front. Adhere ribbon with SNAIL above the paper.
  • Choose an appropriate greeting from the Love & Happiness Rub-Ons. Cut out the greeting from the sheet. Remove the paper backing and place on the ribbon. Gently rub over the sheet with the provided popsicle stick to transfer the rub-on to the ribbon. Gently peel back the rub-on paper.

For the center embellishment, layer the large olive flower from the Flower Fusion Accents & Elements Tin on a small Metal Edge Tag and ands adhere together using a large brad from the Fire Rhinestone Brads. Attach with dimensionals to a white Scallop Circle and adhere this to the inside of the card.
