Hi Artzy friends –
For today’s post I created a birthday card using the Oval Scalloped framelits, along with some new images and papers.
To create this shaped card, I folded a piece of 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ cardstock in half. Then I cut my card base with the largest the oval scalloped dies (which is 5 3/8″ x 4″), arranging the die hanging over the folded edge a bit, so it wouldn’t cut out the complete oval. I then cut another of the largest oval out of teal cardstock, and attached it the front of card, hiding the “flat” top edge of the oval.
I colored and die cut my birdie image from the Scandinavian Songbird stamps and dies, and stamped a sentiment from the set onto a sentiment banner cut with a die from the Slim Mini Wavy Layers dies. I cut the next smaller size scalloped oval out of paper from the Merry and Bright collection, which includes beautiful seasonal patterns as well as year round florals and other patterns.
I completed my card by add another sentiment banner to the inside, finishing off the sentiment, and added a flower from the Joyful Robin stamp and die sets.
The images and sentiments in the Scandinavian Songbird and Joyful Robin sets mix and match perfectly, and coordinate beautifully with the Merry and Bright paper collection!
Creating shaped cards using framelit dies is so fun and easy, yet makes a big impact! And this one fits in a standard A2 envelope for easy mailing!
Thanks for visiting, and have a great day!
