Well - it's Thursday... almost the weekend so hang in there!
And that announces the card for today.....
Hang In There!:
Card dimensions 2 3/4 " h x 5" w.
Materials: CS - pink, light pink, white, Cocoa (CTMH); Ribbon - paisley, Cocoa grosgrain (CTMH); Punch - Giga scalloped circle (Marvy); Cuttlebug die - Zoo animals, 2-way glue.
This card was a bit of an experiment to see how I could use the Giga scalloped punch other than the usual scalloped circle, and I quite like how it turned out.
To make the scallop on the front flap, I cut my pink CS to 12" x 2 3/4". This width is able to be inserted into the Giga punch, when you turn the punch upside down - then you can just scallop 1 end of the paper. Check out the photo below to see what happens.
I then scored the pink CS roughly 1 inch in from the scallop and then folded the long end in, to meet this scored line. That makes the base of the card. I repeated the scalloped punch trick on white CS and adhered it to the inside of the front scalloped pink flap, making sure a bit of the white showed. Then I tied the ribbon around this flap. With the Cuttlebug, I punched out the monkey in both light pink and Cocoa, and then interchanged the light pink and brown branches - using 1 monkey on the front and the other inside.
I printed the sentiment on the colour printer, matching the R/G/B codes to exactly match Cocoa Ink from CTMH. This is a great way of getting sentiments that you don't have stamps for, in the colour of ink/CS you want. Once it was printed, I again cut it so that it was 2 3/4 wide and scallop punched just above the sentiment, and repeated this just below the sentiment.
I hope you like today's post.
Until next time, have a great day!
