Beautiful Wings & Scallop
I love coming home to presents on my doorstep. I bought these for myself mind you, nevertheless, it's so exciting to pull into the driveway to see a Stampin' Up box on the porch. I really should have spent the evening marking some essays, but let's be honest here, this was waaaaayyyyy more fun.
I haven't tried making cards in any other than the traditional shape, but since this little baby was in the box today, I decided to give scalloped shaped cards a whirl. It's definitely smaller than usual, but I think the funkiness of it more than makes up for the smaller size. Along with my new scallop die I got an Embosslit. I'm already in love with these little butterflies. The plate actually cuts 5 little butterflies, so I put one of them inside the card for an extra touch.
If you want to make a scallop card, you just cut 2 scallops from your cardstock and on one piece, score across the top, about 1/4" in. This will give your card the support it needs to stand up.
