I have been on a real roll and couldn't resist doing another card using my handmade flowers and some bling. Also, something I have been seeing a lot of lately is layers of scallops - I wasn't sure about them in the past, but now I am hooked! For this card again I used my trusty Sign Language set and some more Doodlebug Designs paper - this time Cherry Amour. I chose my colour scheme using the lovely colours in this paper and it all seemed to come together quite easily.
Linen Impression Plate. I then sewed a border around the edge. After I cut each scallop, I used my Scor Pal to add a slight bend to each one up a little. I layered my scallops from the bottom, starting with Certainly Celery, designer paper, Lavender Moon and some more Cherry Amour paper. This paper is so pretty!!!!! I popped up the lower Cherry paper on dimensionals - one under each scallop just to make sure that they had some pop.
On the inside I used my Scallop border punch to create a border around all four edges. The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Basics set and was stamped in Certainly Celery ink and clear embossed so it is clearer.I do have to apologise for the photo quality this time - I took this photo at night, so the colours weren't given justice here. This card was oh so much fun to make - very time consuming as I am not the world's quickest cardmaker as I am very critical, but I will definately be having a go at some more scallop layers in future.
I aim to back in a couple of days with another card and want to keep my resolution to make Christmas cards starting now!
