Blessed Easter Scallop Tag Closure Card

by Joanne James4. April 2014 20:55

Today I'm sharing another card from this week's classes - this time one of the scallop tag-closure cards that are all the rage at the moment in a lovely, deep purple. Here is my card: 

The card is a standard A6 size (10.5cm x 14.9cm), but instead of being scored down the centre of the cardstock, I scored at 8.5cm and 19cm, marked the centre point and having guided the cardstock over the punch guides, I punched using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and trimmed away the excess on either side of the punched section. I love this punch - it really is so useful for tags, bookmarks, boxes, fancy cards and everything in between!

I also used my Aquapainter to colour this card, but instead of using watercolour paper I actually used Whisper White cardstock - I wanted to show my class attendees the differences in effect when you use different paper types. The sentiment was also stamped separately and punched out, which worked better on the narrower section. We split our sentiment away from the tulips at the start to allow for more flexibility when stamping, so this was really easy with no masking required.

That's all from me today; I'm entertaining family this weekend and off to play tooth fairy to my eldest this evening, who lost another of her baby teeth today - just need to make sure she's asleep first :-)

Back tomorrow with another card; until then, happy stampin'!

Hi Joanne,
I've never read your posts, but I quite often use your tools for the EPB to make boxes.
Thank you very much for this!
On pinterest I found your Blessed Easter Scallop Tag Closure Card that I find very beautiful.
Greetings,
Saskia
