Modern Medley Designer Paper Ruffles


Hi Stamping Friends!

I'm so excited about tonight's "Last Thursdays" card class because I'm highlighting Designer Series Paper in a variety of ways!  The Stampin' Up! catalog has so many beautiful papers, and right now you can save with the July Buy 3, Get 1 FREE Designer Series Paper promo!  

Today's card design focuses on my favorite papers from this year…Modern Medley! 

Medley birthday - two cool

I found this design online and knew I had to create if for this class.  What better way to showcase the fabulous patterns than by adding several scalloped layers to a card?  And, what better way to use up some of those scraps?!!!

CASE'd from Brenda Keenan at Keenan's Kreations.

I selected six different patterns and cut them into 4" x 1" strips.  To achieve this "ruffled" scallop look, you'll want to be sure to stagger your die-cutting so the scallops are offset on each row.

I had three strips of lighter color papers, so I stacked them and lined up the Large Scallop Edgelit so it cut full scallops.

On the remaining three darker papers, I lined up the edgelit so that it began in the center of the scallops.

I alternated the light and dark papers and adhered them to the 4" x 5-1/4" Very Vanilla layer.  TIP: I only applied SNAIL along the top, non-scallop edge of each strip, so I could bend up the scallops to make them appear more dimensional and ruffly.

For the bow, I wrapped a piece of the 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon around the ruffled layer and adhered the ends to the back.  The bow was created separately and attached with a Glue Dot on top.

I used markers to color the You're Amazing birthday sentiment on the second Marina Mist version, then added some Rhinestone Jewels.
