Happy Friday, everyone! So glad the weekend is coming up! I spent most of today working on embroidery projects, but needed to get this card done so I can mail it.
I went back to some basic tools, my original Sizzix for this card. I cut out the oval scalloped frame in 2 colors, SU Perfect Plum and Pretty Pink. Then I swapped out the inside oval so I had a 2-color scalloped oval. The ivory scalloped oval was punched with my Marvy punch and I did some "spirelli" around the edges with varigated metallic thread. Haven't done that in a long time! I put some Crystal Stickles in the scallops and made the "Hugs" tag with a variety of circle punches. The base card is SU Cool Carribean, one of the In Colors that was retired 2 years ago. I just stocked up on it, because it's one of my favorite colors. Til next time....
