Remember the very popular Scallop Tag Closure Card? Most of the ones I’ve seen (and all of the ones I’ve made), the tags meet up on the right side of the card. I wanted to show off some lovely (retiring) DSP, so have changed the folds and now the tags meet up in the middle. It reminds me of beautiful French doors with a lovely garden view! This card is for a lovely friend, who was lucky enough to keep her birthday to herself after her daughter arrived into the world the day before! (See yesterday’s post for Sophie’s birthday card). Happy Birthday Narelle – may your day be peaceful, calm & filled with delight! Kelly x PS, I particularly love the vellum embossed flowers on this card – I hadn’t tried this before but will definitely be doing it again – the effect is lovely!
1. Take half a piece of A4 cardstock (the size you usually use for a C6 card)
2. Mark each short side at the half way point. Insert into your Scallop Tag Topper Punch and line up so the mark is in the middle of the punch. You’ll need to feed your paper above the paper guide on the punch and look at the back to see your mark. Punch each side.
3. Line up your cardstock in your paper trimmer so you cut off the excess card on each side of the tag (do this on both sides with tags).
4. Place your cardstock in your Simply Scored and score 2″ from each tag. Fold your card up so that it looks like French doors. Decorate as desired.
