TE Release Party Continues, and it's our Final Day! I certainly hope you've been enjoying the party for our July release! Thank you so much for coming by each day to see what I've been working on. I Hope you've been hopping around all week looking at the inspiration presented by the Baker's Dozen featuring everything that is Fresh Out of the Oven from Taylored Expressions! Everything is now available for purchase!
Today, for my last card of Release Week, I'm featuring a cute new stamp set called Life Saver - from the imagination of Nancy McKinney, for her Whimsical Wishes line of stamps. This set coordinates with Under the Sea and comes with it's own dies - an anchor and a life preserver. It will also work well with several other sets this month. I combined it with the new Waves/Bubbles Impression Plate and our Wave Border Die, and some crisp red, white and blue!
I always love an easel card...and so today I am showing you a scallop circle easel card! I just thought that circles were the perfect thing for this life preserver image!
Here's the side view so you can see the construction. The whole thing folds flat for mailing (see last photo).
Cute saying right? I added just a touch of bright yellow to pop off that blue...
To make your card, you need to cut one big scallop circle, and then cut a second one that is still folded at the top and attached together. Then you just make the card the same way you would any other easel card!
How adorable is that dolphin!? I think this could also be cute for kids cards! I cut him out of a different image and then put his tail below to look like he's hanging on! See the yummy swirls behind him from the impression plate?
Here's the final card, folded and ready to mail.
The last link list of release week!
