Ode to the Top Note Die


Ahh, the Top Note die! I think that I shall never see, a die as lovely . . .   Ooh, sorry. Guess I got carried away a little! 

I love to make these Top Note Flap cards! So easy, yet such a fun twist on a standard card size and shape. I cut the cardstock at 4 1/4 x 11, then score at 5 1/2 and fold. Place folded cardstock onto the Top Note Die, so that just the tops of the "shoulders" and the point still show above the cardstock. This gives you a hinged Top Note that is so fun to decorate! 

The So Saffron strip on the left side is run through the Crimper, but it's a little hard to see in the photo.
