Double Scallop A2 Card

Hello!

Today on my blog, I’m sharing a card that I made using the Double Scallop A2 Card die set from The Stamps of Life. This die set includes a die that you can use to make an A2 size scallop card base. There are also two scallop layering dies — one with dots and one without dots. This die set also includes a flower die and shadow. That’s not all — it also includes a “Happy Birthday” and “Thank You” word dies with shadows. For this card, I made a Thank You card.

Ink-Blended and Stencil Background Techniques

Today I’m sharing two cards that I made using the dotted flower background die set from The Stamps of Life. I’m also sharing two techniques that you can use with your background dies. One technique is simply die cutting the background die and ink-blending the cardstock after it’s die cut to create the beautiful background on the left (above).  The second technique is using your background die as a stencil as shown in the card on the right (above).

To see a tutorial of how I made these cards, watch my YouTube video below. Links to the products are also listed below.
