Square scallop Card
Hi all! Mojo Monday gave to sketches to try-round and square. I did the round one-now here is my sqaure one. The card is 4 1/2 in square. I cut the card itself using the reddish-pink paper and the Cricut Winter Wonderland cartridge (the first square snowflake). I used the shadow function and cut two pieces. I scored a line on the back of the second piece to make the fold then used my tape gun to adhere them together. This time I marked the top of the paper and turned the paper over for the second piece so that they would match up better. I had a little trouble with the round card-it didn't want to match up. I tried cutting a smaller piece out of scrap paper to use as the pink layer, but the scallops wouldn't match up and it didn't lay right. Instead, I used my printer/copier to shrink the original card to a size that I liked. This worked better-I just had to copy it at different percentages to find the right size. Once I found the size I wanted, I used the Gemstone co-oredinations paper for the pink layer. I used my crop-a-dile big bite (set on the smallest hole punch) to punch holes in it and laced it with burgundy ribbon from Darice. The bow was just tied. I marked the spots with a pencil first. Then back to the copier to shrink some more. I folded this piece in half because I only needed half of it. I cut a piece out of the two differnt papers (one was just a pink cardstock). I stamped the pink cardstock with a script background stamp using Worn Lipstick distress ink. I layed a piece of the burgundy ribbon over the middle to cover up where the papers meet. I cut the label using the same cartridge and snowflake as the card. The hearts were punched using the Creative Memories small heart punch. The sentiment was inked with Fired Brick Distress Ink. The bow with multiple loops was made with my bowdabra.
I entered it in the following challenges:
