Scalloped Tag Topper Card and Bookmark - Updated with more photos!

This is the card and bookmark that was made recently at my last workshop.  Once you have your dimensions down for cutting the card it really is easy to make.  With the absence of a video to show you I will try to explain how I cut the card.  My camera battery also just went dead and I am recharging it, so once I can take more pictures I will post them so you can see step by step how I made this.

You cut your card stock the same you would for any standard card.  To start it measures 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".  Then you need to find the center of the card on the 5 1/2" side.  A trick I learned from another demonstrator was to take your card stock and line it up on a piece of Stampin' Up! Grid Paper.  You will notice that the paper has different markings on all of the sides. Using the side where the paper  measurements are marked 20 on the left and 20 on the right, line up your card stock between the two 7 markings.  Now the 0 marking will be your center.   Place a little mark here at the top of your card stock, and then do the same at the bottom of your card stock.  Remember you are marking the 5 1/2" sides of your card stock.  These marks are where you will punch with the Scallop Tag Topper.

Once you have your card stock punched you want to cut away the remaining layer of card stock up to where the scallop tag was punched.  Now for just one of the scalloped tag punched edges you want to score and fold it in.  If you look at my card the right scalloped punched piece is folded in, the left one is not scored and folded.  After you do this you want to place the right side with the scalloped tag folded in on your Simply Scored Scoring Tool and now score at 4 1/4". 

Now when you fold your card you have the two scalloped pieces meeting so you can tie them together, and the card is still a standard sized card.

Whew - I hope I didn't confuse you more and that some of that makes sense.  If you have any questions feel free to comment or send me an e-mail.  I will come back later with more pictures for a better explanation and all of the measurements for my layers.

Update - ** Layering sizes.  For the front panel the Card Stock measures 2 1/2" x 5 1/4" and the Designer Series Paper meaxures 2 1/4" x 5".  The inside has a piece of Whisper White Card Stock cut to 5 1/4" x 4".

To make the bookmark you need to start with a piece of card stock that measures 2" in width and you can make the length as short or long as you would like.  You can layer your Designer Series Paper right on top and punch both pieces at the same time.
