If you want to see how to cut mats for Scalloped Top and Ornate Top Tags, I’ve created a video for you! I’ve been writing and teaching about mats lately, and showed you a video on how to cut a mat for an Angled Top Tag in this post: Using Mats Effectively in Cardmaking and Paper Crafting.
The Angled Tag Topper Punch is only one of three Tag Topper Punches from Stampin’ Up! They each bring a unique feel to a handmade card or paper craft project. I figured if you can create a mat for one, there must be a way to make mats for the others. Turns out there is a way, and it’s very simple!

This card uses the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (133324), along with the Bloom with Hope stamp set, and colored with Blendabilities. Bloom with Hope is one of the low-priced stamp sets you can purchase only if your order qualifies for Hostess Benefits or Stampin’ Rewards.
