 Scallop gate cards - three cool

Have you seen this cute scallop tie closure on cards?  It's actually part of the card base, not just a scallop tag that's adhered to the card.  And, it's created with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch—just one more reason it's a must-have stamping tool!

Cool Card Base Instructions—The card base is created from a traditional sized 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card.  Even though the Scallop Tag Topper Punch is designed to accommodate card stock that is 2" wide, you can lift up the edges of the card stock and force the whole 5-1/2" side into the punch.  If you mark 1" on each side from the top, then use that as a guide, you can get the tag tops lined up nicely.  Then you do some simple trimming and scoring and you're ready to decorate.  It probably sounds confusing, but it's really pretty simple!

See the complete instructions by from Tanya Bell at Stampin T.

Scallop gate cards - pool 4 

Floral Print—I decorated each card front with a 2-1/4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla, stamped with images from the Petal Parade stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration flyer.  Earn it for FREE with your order of $50 from my Online Store!  The large flower is stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe, the medium flower is stamped in Pool Party and the leaves are stamped in Pistachio Pudding.

Perfect Sentiment—Using Bermuda Bay ink for a darker contrast, I stamped the Perfect Pennants sentiment on Very Vanilla, then die-cut it with the Apothecary Accents Framelits shape.  It's popped up with Dimensionals and decorated with Pearl Jewels.

Tied Closure—Once the inside was all decorated with a 1-3/4" x 5-1/4"  panel of Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper, I tied the scallop toppers closed with some Very Vanilla Seam Binding.

Scallop gate cards - cantaloupe 

I mixed it up on this card by starting with a Crisp Cantaloupe card base and adding a panel of matching the Sale-A-Bration Sweet Sorbet DSP to the inside.

This phrase is also from Perfect Pannants, stamped in Calypso Coral, and it's die-cut with the matching Banners Framelits.

Card Inside Décor—All of the insides have a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla that's stamped with each image and the patterned paper.  I'm so proud of myself for taking the time to decorate the inside…I usually don't have the patience!  I need to do that more often because it really finishes the card, doesn't it?! 

Scallop gate cards - pistachio

I couldn't stop with just two colors when I knew there was a pretty Pistachio Pudding pattern in the Sweet Sorbet DSP  There's also one in the Pool Party floral pattern in the pack, too! If only I had remembered sooner, I would have used all Sweet Sorbet paper…well, duh!

  Scallop gate cards - pistachio 2 

This sentiment is also from Perfect Pennants, this time inked in Bermuda Bay with a Crisp Cantaloupe circle popped up in the center.  It's die-cut with the Chalk Talk Framelits. 

Come "Wow" With Us!  I'd love for you to join us as we create this cute scallop closure card!  Choose your color and your sentiment for your own custom design!  Beginning stampers are welcome!
