Scalloped Circular Card

September 10th, 2008 · 22 Comments

Scalloped Circular Card

Ever since I got the large Sizzix scallop circle die, I’ve been wanting to make a circular card with it. I found that the scallops really help stabilize the card, whereas a truly circular card sometimes doesn’t want to stay put. I folded a 11″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Whisper White card stock and ran it through the Big Shot, with the fold just inside the top of the scallop die. I then cut out a Bravo Burgundy scallop circle with the same die, and adhered it to the card front.

The color combination was chosen by Kristina Werner (Color Inspiration #22). For the background, I repeatedly stamped the three flowers in VersaMark ink on Glossy White card stock and then used a brayer to apply Regal Rose ink. I wiped the flowers with a paper towel afterwards, to make them stand out more. The big flower was stamped in Rose Red ink on Glossy White card stock and cut out. I glued it to a 5-Petal flower, punched out of textured Soft Sky card stock.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Awesome, Vera! On Friday, where did you want to meet? If you would like, I could see if the Club Room is open. We would have plenty of room and no hubbies would be displaced.

    Love the idea and the card. Beautiful. Can you tell me how you take a picture of your cards. The backgrounds are so white. When I take a picture there always seems to be a shadow around it. Thanks
