Welcome Baby card

4 Jan

I’m still enjoying the various challenges around the paper creating world. Today, I went over to Caardvarks and found a wonderful sketch over there created by Becky Fleck at PageMaps and a prize from my favorite stamp company, JustRite Stampers. So how could I resist!

I like the idea of a scalloped edge on the face of a card but sometimes it is a challenge to cut it with scissors. So my Wizard™ and I got busy with a scalloped rectangle. To be precise, S4-143 Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles LG. I used the rectangle to cut the front edge of the card.

In order to cut just one edge, layer the sandwich:

  • White Master Mat
  • Magnetic Spacer Plate
  • Die template with cut edges up and threaded with the card front
  • White Master Mat

So the die template’s left edge, as seen above, sits on top of the card back, while the right edge sits on top of the card front. Run it through the Wizard™ to cut.

You will most likely see some embossed marks on the upper edge of the card from the die template. You can work with this, enhance it to add to the design or just cover it with some other design element. I chose to ignore it on this occasion. The rest of the card is fairly simple with a few stickers, ribbons and fun flower buttons. I hope you enjoy!

Important Stuff: Treasures Natural cardstock (WorldWin), Striped paper (Me & My BIG Ideas), Wizard™, S4-143 Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles LG (Spellbinders), Flower Buttons (Oriental Trading Company), Flower stickers (Colorbök), Small round stickers (Making Memories), 3-in-1 Craft Glue (Beacon Adhesives)

Other Stuff: 1/8″ ribbons
