Scallop Notes ...

scallop notecard in soft skyI bought some scallop note awhile back and finally got around to creating a couple cards with them. The notes come in a pack of 3 colors (Very Vanilla, Soft Sky and Kraft) and, being a fan of little notes, I think I'll be using these more. They'll be cute mounted on to the front of larger cards, too.

They're a bit tricky to photograph since when they stand up, you can't see that the front scallop edge is a bit shorter than the back - so here's a "reclining card" to show the front/back difference.

Soft Sky Scallop Notecard
The card front is stamped on a 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and mounted on a piece of Groovy Guava that's just a smidge bigger.

Stamps: Live Your Dreams (SU)
Colors: Groovy Guava, Creamy Caramel
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Groovy Guava, Soft Sky (a dot created by punching with an 1/8" circle punch)
Tip: The smaller flowers in the lower right were stamped off once (Creamy Caramel) before stamping the card.

Kraft Scallop Notecard
To make the edges pop a bit more, I sponged a bit of color (for this card, I used Perfect Plum). For this card, I also used a rub-on greeting in black from the Eastern Elegance rub-on set.

Stamps: Friendly Flowers (SU)
Colors: Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Pretty in Pink
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Pretty In Pink (a dot created by punching with an 1/8" circle punch)
Tip: The smaller flower image in the upper right was stamped off once (Perfect Plum) before stamping the card. The Friend saying was stamped in Perfect Plum at full-strength.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
