Pals Paper Arts-PPA111

It's a sketch challenge week at Pals Paper Arts! Wonderful sketch artist Margaret Moody has drawn up the outline. Now it is up to you to fill in the blanks! It's always amazing how one simple sketch leads to so many fabulous creations. Here is this weeks sketch challenge:


My Card:



I thought I would create an easel card today. I haven't done one for awhile. This time I used the Scallop Square Die to complete it. Here is the side view so you can see how I set it up:


And a close-up of the detail:


I don't own any Bravo Burgundy ribbon so I dyed my own! I used an empty embellishment container, filled up half full of H2O, added 3 drops of Bravo Burgundy Ink Refill, threw in the lace ribbon and shake, shake, shake away. I pulled the ribbon from the container and laid it on a paper towel to dry. That easy:


Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Old Olive, More Mustard, Bravo Burgundy, Whisper White
  • Stamp Sets: Flores Sauves, On Your Birthday
  • Tools: BigShot Machine, Square Scallop Die, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, White Embossing Powder, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Accessories: Brads, Victoria Crochet Trim Lace
  • Inks: VersaMark, Old Olive, Bravo Burgundy Ink Refill

  3. Debbie, this is beautiful! I love the use of the scallop die for easel cards. I had never used the square scallop die until a couple of days ago when I went to a friend's house. It's such a great shape and so versatile!
