Todays post is using the gorgeous scalloped circle punch. The one i am using in this post is the large 3"one.
I decided to use it to make a card but not a normal one, i wanted to use the scalloped circle as the opener, so i made my own gatefold card.
To start you need to make the card. The size of the one i made is 18cm in length and 9cm from top to bottom. I then scored the folding bits to the size of about 4 1/2cm.
I made it fairly small as i wanted the scalloped circle to be the focal point on the front.
I then cut out the green Basic Grey pattern paper to cover the folded bits of the card. Before sticking it down ink round the edges. You may have realised i ink round everything!!! lol. I think it defines the edges of the layers and you can see the colour differences more.
I then used the yellow corner rounder and scalloped a thin piece of pink Basic Grey paper. I adhered them to the edges of the card. You can adhere them to the inside of the card as you will cover them up later.
I then cut out a small rectangle of white card and then added an extra blue pattern paper and adhered that leaving a small margin.
Before sticking down add a small bit of ribbon.
I then punched out the scalloped circle with some pink pattern paper and then cut out 2 more circles just a smaller than each other.
Adhere them all together
and attach to the left handside of the card. Only adhering the lefthandside or you will stick the card together.
I then embellished it with a Heidi Swapp flower, punched small Retro flower and a button.
I also covered the back using the same pattern as the 2 front parts...
I then covered all the insides as well. Leaving the middle panel fairly empty to write the words on...
I then made an envelope to go with it. I made it alot bigger than the actual card, as the card is fairly thick.
The pattern paper i used for this card is the gorgeous line from Basic Grey
