Hey there, Bleeps*! Today, I'm sharing a card for Skipping Stones Design. Today's sketch is a shaped card, so I created a scalloped circle card. I'll give a tip about how I create them below. used my Copic markers to color the hearts and really bedazzled the card!

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit today!

Instructions
  1. Die cut two large scalloped circles from black cardstock.
  2. On one scalloped circle, score a line at one end about 1/4" from the top and set aside.
  3. Die cut a circle shape from white cardstock, then emboss it.
  4. Pop circle die cut off scalloped circle die cut (without the scored line).
  5. Stamp three hearts on white cardstock, color, cut out, then pop off white circle.
  6. Stamp sentiment.
  7. Add rhinestones.
  8. Adhere scalloped circle die cut (with scored line) to the card front.
Tips & Tricks
  • To create a full shaped card, die cut two shapes. For the shape of the back of the card, score a line at the top, then add adhesive above the scored line. Adhere that part to the card front to create a scored card.

Love this! Thanks for the instructions on making the circle card. I know it is easy, but it always looks intimidating to me. I'm going to give this a try.

THANK YOU for the tip/trick. I too have always wanted to make a shaped card but I think the harsh edge of clipping it close to the fold edge always ruins the look. This I can do!

Beautiful Ashley! The whitespace really makes the hearts and rhinestones pop! TFS!
