Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card
in the Dynamic Duo of
Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink


1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card.


This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine.


2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards.


3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above.


4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock).


5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the front of the card.

6. Stamp your sentiment on Whisper White and punch it out using the Large Oval and Scallop Oval Punches.

7. Use the Paper Piercing Tool to pierce holes in each of the scallops.


8. Cut a slightly smaller circle using Whisper White and dry emboss using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.

9. Sponge over the raised embossing using the darker shade of ink (MM).

10. Attach a bow to the lower central part of the card.


11. Stamp the images from the Level 1 Hostess Set, Punch Potpourri using the two shades of Pink (Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink) onto Whisper White Card Stock (Butterfly has been 'Rock'n' Rolled') and punch out using the matching punches. Sponge around the edges of the heart with the darker shade (MM) and attach images to your card using Stamping Dimensionals and Sticky Strip to create the two layers. Attach a Pearl in the middle of your butterfly.


That's all there is to it! Happy crafting.

Thanks Bronwyn for your detailed instructions on this card. It's truly beautiful. I've made a lot of easel cards and each and every one of them has always been a thrill. There's just something special about those round cards. TFS.

Thanks so much for this tutorial, Bronwyn! I was trying to follow a cascading easel card on a video and couldn't work out which way to fold the circle....your tutorial was EASY and made success possible instead of giving up!

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench.

Summer Strawberries
This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges -
JAI #318 - "Just Add S"

S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer!
Thanks, JAI!
and ...
 JUGs #350 - Word Week

Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -

Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the original card for this type of fold. I came up with the idea of adding the card inserts to a z-fold. A v…
