You Are My Sunshine & New WOW! Video

It’s almost like waving a magic wand.  Make a simple crop to a Scallop Square and convert it into many sized scallop rectangles.  Luscious for layering.

The Pumpkin Pie scallop square on today’s card began as 3″ x 3″ and ended up as 3″ x 2 3/4″ to accommodate the shape of the Sunshine single stamp.  Watch my new 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial for a variety of ways to use this little trick.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • I cropped the front of the card base to 2 7/8″ wide.

  • The Marina Mist Polka Dot pattern (Stampin’ Up! Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper) lines the exposed area of the interior.
  • This cute dinnerware from Target inspired my color scheme.

  • There are many ways to hide the “seam.”  I opted for a banner on my card above but you could also use ribbon as in this example:

  • I removed the 3 center scallops from the Scallop Square to create this 3″ x 2 1/8″ rectangle.  I used one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies (127003) to crop the “Thanks” sentiment (Oh, Hello stamp set).
