Welcome to another monthly PTI Blog Hop. All the details are in Nichole's post here. We were to create a project using scallops.
Did you see Jessica Witty's post on the Evolution of a Card? I thought she was writing about me. I won't bore you with the whole, long process to arrive at my card (but it did evolve over three days). I know you're here to see a card and move on. Therefore, without further ado, my contribution to "A Salute to Scallops".
I am infatuated with Dawn's Dress Form. I used it for a Christmas card and made a tiny skirt from lace edging. I thought I could do more with rows of scallops - but it just wasn't working. Then as I was folding a strip of scallops, this idea came to me. I think the greatest AHA! moment was when I inverted a scrap and saw that I could create that sweetheart neckline with just two scallops.
The skirt is vellum, cut with the PTI medium scallop border and heat embossed with white Filigree powder. PTI Background Basics: Petal Power was used for the lacy design. I edged the scallops with a VersaMark pen and again embossed with white. With the aid of my ScorPal, I accordion folded the wide strip as you would for a medallion. I added the bodice and a narrow white ribbon and bow to cover the waistline. Tiny white pearls finish off the neckline.
Triple cuts with the same border die create the right front opening of the card. A scrap of the vellum is sandwiched between a Soft Stone base and a Scarlet Jewel panel. The background is stamped with Fancy Flourishes and VersaMark ink. The sentiment is from Wishing you, stamped inside Fillable Frame #7 (notice the scallops?) and cut out with a pair of small scallop Paper Shapers from ProvoCraft. (I can never part with anything. Knew they'd come in handy again someday)
I hope you enjoyed your stop here. I spent three days on this card and besides this entry, have absolutely no use for it. I thought it might work for a Bridal Shower. I don't have an Etsy shop or anything. So, if you know of someone who might be interested, contact me and we can talk.
Enjoy the rest of the Hop. Thanks for stopping by.
