First up I must aplogise for not having the measurements for you in this post, but if anyone is wanting them, please email me. I really have to think what I actually used here….
I did this card sometime ago – early September to be exact & did make it with a little boy in mind, but ended up sending it off to my uncle. He turned 81!!! He is always stirring me, so I thought this would be a great way to get one up on him….. He thought it fantastic, but the best part, the great-grandkids loved it!!!!!!
After adhering the base card together using Wild Wasabi & So Saffron Cardstocks, I adhered DSP onto Early Expresso then onto the So Saffron. This formed the front of the card.
Using my Scallop Circle Punch, I punched a circle with Early Expresso, adhered a circle of Wild Wasabi Cardstock to the top which had been punched using the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. I punched another piece of Cardstock in Whisper White with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch & adhered to the top of the Wild Wasabi circle.
I stamped my image onto Whisper White Cardstock using Early Expresso Ink,punched the image with the new Petite Pennants Builder Punch & adhered to the circle with Snail Adhesive. I stamped the top onto Whisper White using So Saffron Ink, cut it out, dotted some dots using my SU Marker – Early Expresso, placed white gel dots around the scallop with my Gel Pen & adhered to the top of the cone with SU Dimensionals. The whole scallop circle was adhered to the card with SU Dimensionals.
For my greeting, I stamped onto Whisper White Cardstock in Early Expresso Ink, punched it out with the Large Oval Punch & adhered to a piece of Baja Breeze which had been punched with the Scallop Oval Punch. I again placed white gel dots around the scallop with my Gel Pen & adhered to the bottom of the card with SU Dimensionals.
As I wanted the card to be flat for posting, instead of gluing all sides together, I left one side open & placed 3 SU Dimensionals to the inside of the card.
