Autumn Scalloped Square Card

Hello crafters! Today I have for you a card made with the SCCSC32 Sketch Challenge on Stampin Connection. Take a look!

  • Stamps: Day of Gratitiude
  • Cardstock: Peach Parfait, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze
  • DSP: Autumn Spice
  • Ink: Old Olive, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler
  • Accessories: Scallop Edge Border Punch, Scallop Square Clear Bigz Die, Scallop Circle Punch, Extra Large Flower Punch, Circle Scissor, Silver Glass Glitter, Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive

The card base is a piece of Peach Parfait cardstock cut at 5" x 10" and scored at 5". The fold of the cardstock was positioned just under the blade for the scallops on the top. This makes a scalloped square for your card base. A piece of Cajun Craze cardstock was cut at 3 7/8" x 3 7/8" and adhered to the card front. A piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock was cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" and adhered to the card front. A scrap strip of Cherry Cobbler cardstock (approximately 3/4" wide) was adhered to the card front.

A 3" circle was cut from a piece of beautiful Autumn Spice DSP with the Circle Scissor. This DSP, now available in the Holiday Mini Catalog, is absolutely gorgeous!!! I just love all the great DSP patterns Stampin' Up offers this year! The 3" circle was adhered to the card front. A scrap piece of Early Espresso cardstock was punched with the Scallop Edge Border punch and adhered to the card front (approximately 3/4" wide). Both strips of cardstock were longer than the card front and trimmed around the scallops with paper snips after the pieces were glued on.

The Extra Large Fancy Flower punch was used with Peach Parfait cardstock to punch a flower. The edges of the flower were sponged with Early Espresso ink. The 1 3/4" Scalloped Circle punch was used to punch a circle from Very Vanilla cardstock. The leaf from Days Of Gratitude was stamped in Old Olive ink by stamping off before stamping onto the Very Vanilla cardstock. The greeting was stamped in Early Espresso ink.

At first I had sponged the edges of the scalloped circle with Cherry Cobbler ink, but I didn't like how it looked. It was okay, but looked a little flat. So I got out my new Silver Glass Glitter and my Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive and added a glittered edge around the scalloped circle. This, now sparkly, circle was adhered to the Peach Parfait flower and then adhered to the card front with a Stampin' Dimensional.

I hope you like my interpretation of the sketch! Monday I will definitely have a tutorial for you, come back to check it out!
