Top Note Photo Card

I have a workshop this Saturday for Stephanie, and she specifically asked me to come up with a photo card we could make. I thought and thought and thought about it for hours. I kept thinking about photo cards at like Target or Snapfish that you get for Christmas where the photo slides in and out of a pocket. I couldn't figure out how to make that pocket. Then, da-da-da-dun!, Big Shot to the rescue. Here's what I came up with:

Photo Card
Stamp Set: Great Friend
Cardstock: So Saffron, Whisper White
DSP: Walk in the Park
Stamp Pads (Classic): So Saffron, Regal Rose

Accessories/Tools: Big Shot, Top Note die, 5/8" Rose Red ribbon

All I did was cut the DSP to 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 (same as one "face" of the card) then run it through the Big Shot using Top Note. Then I basically assembled it like a scrapbook. The photo *can* come out of the card (I only affixed tape on the very edges of the DSP), but I taped a butterfly on it, so now it won't! I also decorated the inside with the leaf branch from Great Friend and added the XOXOXO sentiment from Fundamental Phrases.

I hope Steph likes it! I also hope it's easy enough for new stampers to make, yet fun and different enough for experienced (it's a mixed group). Anyway, thanks for looking! Oh, and for those curious, the photo is my husband and me at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum last summer.


  1. Great idea for the Big Shot! The more and more I see cool projects like this the harder it is to wait on getting the Big Shot!

  2. Just gorgeous Tracy!! I love the clean lines, the Top Note cut out and those darling butterflies will win the guests hearts!! Sure did mine... I love the colors! Super job... SMILES! :)

  3. Beatiful card, great way to use the top note die. TFS

  4. very cool idea! I love the Top Note as a frame, and I love that you can take the photo out if you want.

  5. Very adorable! I just love the versatility of that top note die cut.


Imagine a beep. Then leave me a message! I love hearing from you, thanks!
