Scallop Envelope Easel Card Tutorial

Remember the Scallop Envelope Die?  Even though it has retired, it still remains a favourite of mine.

About two and a half years ago I designed a Scallop Envelope Easel Card for a Guest Designer Gig at U Stamp with Dawn and Friends.  Because this is an original design I have decided to share the instructions on my blog.  Most of the products are now retired but somebody out there just might find this tutorial useful.  Please let me know if you do :)  Enjoy!

Tangerine Tango (TT), Regal Rose (RR), Daffodil Delight (DD), Early Espresso (EE), Very Vanilla(VV)

5 ½” x 5” of TT (x2) for two cut Scallop Envelopes & EE (x1) for the third Scallop Envelope
Small amount of RR & DD DSP for envelope flaps
Scrap of DD for branch
Scrap of VV for owl and true friend stamps 
Accessories -
Scallop Envelope Die, XL Two-Step Owl Punch, ½” Circle Punch, Dimensional, Adhesive Velcro Dot

Cut off the two thin side flaps on the TT envelopes and adhere the two large flaps at the back together to form a ‘clam’ shape. 
Place two rows of sticky strip to the top scalloped flap and attach the top of the complete and assembled EE Scallop Envelope to it.
Fold up the bottom TT scalloped flap half way and secure down with sticky strip to form the base where the easel envelope rests. 

Cut out and glue DSP flaps to the card.

Complete the Scallop Envelope Easel Card as above by attaching back of owl's head to top flap, add part of the true friend stamp and punch with 1/2" circle to form a 'badge' for the owl.

Secure an adhesive Velcro dot to the lower half of the body and envelope.


This is so adorable!!!!

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!

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…

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…
