Oval Scallop Frame

As you can probably tell from a lot of my posts, I love my Big Shot Die Cut Machine. There is such a large selection of big dies, texture plates, embossing folders, and embosslit dies, in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and patterns that I use it almost daily. When I joined Stampin' Up as an Independent Demonstrator it was the first thing I added to my already vast collection of products. I use it not only to add layers or textures to my cards, but for gift bags and boxes, shower and wedding favors, special holiday gifts and so much more. A great way for you to purchase your own machine is to host a workshop and use your hostess credits towards the purchase price, or join my team of Independent Demonstrators and receive it and any products you purchase at 20% off. Ask me for details or stop by to try it out for yourself.

For the get well card posted today I used the Oval Scallop Frame. When cutting the frame you can use both the inner oval and the outer scallop frame together, or you can just use one by itself. First I cut with a piece of Bella Bleu Designer Series Paper, and then a piece of Not Quite Navy Cardstock, and used only the frame from the Bella Bleu and the oval from the Not Quite Navy. I saved the pieces I didn't use and will have a frame of Not Quite Navy and an oval of Bella Bleu for another card. I added a few butterflies cut from Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die and sponged a little bit of Not Quite Navy ink on them and then embossed the sentiment by stamping it with Versa Mark Ink and then heat embossing with White Embossing Powder to finish the card.

To make the card I used the following:
Cardstock: Not Quite Navy #100867, Very Vanilla #106530
Designer Series Paper: Bella Bleu #113974
Ink: Versa Mark #102283
Big Shot Machine #113439, Oval Scallop Frame #114521, Beautiful Wings Embosslite Die #118138
White Embossing Powder #109132, Heat Tool #100005
Stamp Set: Sincere Salutations #115068
