Today I am using an older Spellbinders die set and this one is the Classic Scallop. It creates a lovely fancy edge to your cards but today I am going to show you how to it to use it in a different way.
The card is a 5x7 card and I have used lovely teal card in two different patterns - spots and stripes
Other Supplies:Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearls from Want2Scrap
From Matting Basics A #7 cut two white panels for the base card and Hinge together
From Matting basics B #7 cut a colored panel
From Matting Basics A #6 cut a patterned price of card and emboss
(Please remember that the smallest die is always #1)
These are the dies in the Classic Scallop set and it shows clearly the cutting edge to the die at the bottom. The other two are inserts that will give you the pattern that you want in your scallop.
I am using the middle one for my card
To a piece of the colored card that is about 3 1/2 " (9cms) wide I have taped the cutting edge and the scalloped detail die and run it through the Grand Calibur
Lay it onto the colored card and place the two dies at the other side and when you have it as you want it to look remove the patterned card and tape the dies in place and run them again through the Grand Calibur
Glue the embossed patterned and colored layers together but don't add them to the base card yet .
Add the patterned strip to the Classic Scalloped panel with foam pads in between them and trim to fit the front of the card
Plait some white ribbon through the scallops and then glue the ends in place neatly on the back
Add this to the larger mats with foam tape to give dimension and then add all of these layers to the base card
Cut the With Love Sentiment several times and glue them together one on top of the other to create a nice thick wording. I have trimmed mine down a little and added it to the card in a central position.
Add a little Rose to the bow at the top of the card and three small pearls to the bottom right hand corner and there you have another pretty card to add to your repertoire
More tomorrow ...
