“Create With Kathe” For Thursday 21st August 2014


This past week was all about the gorgeous and versatile “Kinda Eclectic” stamp set, and the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.
We made two projects, the first a Gift Holder, which contains a small greeting card and cellophaned Lip Balm, the second project is a Greeting Card with a fancy closing {made wit the Scallop Tag Topper Punch}, and has many details ...
The ladies got to choose between two of the new “In Colours”, Blackberry Bliss or Lost Lagoon …



Project 1 Gift Holder + Git Card + Lip Balm
This is a case via my good friend Ruth, however I altered the measurements and added the Scallop Tag Topper closing + Lip Balm Holder, and card.
Naturals White cardstock forms the base of the Gift Holder.
Please see diagram …



Cut cardstock 7” x 11 1/2”
Along the 7” length, score at 2 ½” in on both sides, which leaves a 2” panel in the middle.
Along the 11 ½” length, score at 4 ¾” and 6 ¾”
At the 4 ¾” and 6 ¾” score marks, measure 2 ½ “ along the crease line, draw a diagonal line to the fold, cut of all shaded areas.
Once the shaded areas are cut away, measure ½” along the 11 ½ “ length and cut the sides off.
You will be left with a long slim piece of cardstock with what looks like wings on either side.
Crease along the scored lines.
Stamp on one side, at both ends, where the Scallop Tag Topper will be punched.


Flip the cardstock over and stamp the Wings.


First stamp the leaves with the “Kinda Eclectic” stamp set in Crumb Cake, once dry, stamp over and just to the side {to give a shadow effect} with either Blackberry Bliss or Lost Lagoon.
Fold the Wings inwards, and turn the cardstock inside out, the “Wings” then become the pockets, in which the gift card is placed.


A cute little card slips into the pocket, with some butterflies added for special effect.
Hanging in the middle of the Tag Tops is a cellophane bag which contains a Lip Balm.


Ribbon is threaded through the Tag Tops and tied.
Wah-lah … Gift Holder + Git Card + Lip Balm done!

The cardbase is Naturals White, and has accents of Blackberry Bliss or Lost Lagoon. Designer Series Paper Stack in the corresponding colour is also used.
