On a Pedestal Pull Up Card

Hello everyone today I have a birthday card using the new stamp set On a Pedestal, this set
looked like so much fun in the catalog I couldn't resist getting it! For this card I created a pull up tag which exposes a birthday message. On a 31/4"x 21/2" piece of white card stock I stamped the pedestal in Mellon Mambo and then took my Crop-a-dile and used the small hole punch to punch a hole on top of each end of the pedestal. Then I used a craft knife and ruler to cut a slot for my tag to fit. The tag measures 1 1/2"x 3" with the message "Happy Everything to You" stamped at the bottom and the cake stamp above that (leave enough room for your hole punch and ribbon pull). I used the tag corner punch before tying on my ribbon and before I glued down my pedestal piece of card stock (being careful not to glue where my tag would fit in) I taped down a piece of white card stock onto the Chocolate Chip piece behind the slot opening so the CC card stock wouldn't peek through. I hope all this makes sense because once I figured out the measurements this card was rather easy to make and fun.

Supplies: On a Pedestal, Happy Everything, Polka Dot BG, Mellon Mambo DSP, Ribbon, Crop-a-dile, Corner tag punch, Scallop edge punch, Word Window punch, CC marker. Colors: Mellon Mambo, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White.

Hope your having a great weekend!
