Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge Number 2


Today's Challenge for the Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge is to use Scalloped Circles, I don't mind sharing that this challenge got me worried as I only own one scalloped punch and no scalloped nesties, I suppose that's why it's called a "challenge" not an "easy", LOL!!

I had it in my head to make a scalloped card, rather than using my one scalloped circle template on a square card and suddenly remembered that I'd got some shaped templates a while back with the intention of using them for scrapbooking.  To my shame I'm not sure if I have ever opened the packets, but now I have I can see I'm going to be using these for cardmaking a lot more.  Lesson learnt - I don't always need the latest tools to get a particular style of card done, I just need to look at what I've got in a different way... not that I shall be sharing that particular train of thought with hubby :-)

OK, enough waffle onto the card...

 I placed the template onto my folded card and drew round the outside and cut out the shape with scissors and went roung the edge of the card with a white pen to add faux stitching and glued a light blue gem onto each scallop.

I then cut some smaller circles from white cardstock and my papers using a circle cutter (no idea what it's proper name is but it looks a bit like a compass with a point and a sharp cutting blade!) I stuck these together and added some ribbon and lace before sticking to my card base 

The image has been stamped onto Neenah cardstock and coloured with Copics and cut out using a 3" circle punch.  I've inked the edges with Ice Blue Color Box Chalk, and added Gloss Accents to his glass and all those bubbles!

The sentiment is a freebie from Papermania, punched out with a 1" circle punch.  I've mounted this on a scalloped circle chippie which I have sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist

To finish the card off I have added some flowers and highlighted the petals with Diamond Stickles
