Love Wreath Card With Decorative Edge Tip by Melinda

Happy “TuesDIE” crafty friends!

Here’s a look at my finished card. It is a standard A2 size. The base was white cardstock.  I used  green and pink cardstock for a mats. I embossed the pink mat to add the pretty texture.

Next I used the oval scalloped stitched dies to cut a couple of mats. I embossed the smaller oval mat with the same embossing folder as the pink one. I then cut the love wreath die out twice from white cardstock.

I colored the die cuts with my Copic markers. I layered the two die cuts with a little foam tape so that the leaves would have a little movement. I finished off the heart with some stickles and added some Nuvo Crystal Ivory Seashell  drops to the centers of the flowers.

I used the smallest oval stitched scallop die to cut out my sentiment.
I added a gold stitched white ribbon.

HOW TO CREATE A CURVED SCALLOPED EDGE


Position the paper under and over the die as pictured.
I used the scallop stitched oval dies for my mats. I used the two largest dies in the set.


Prepare your die sandwich. Place the top cutting plate only to the point where you want the die to cut the paper. Doing this will prevent the paper from creasing as the die and paper go through your machine.

Remove the paper and you will have a perfectly cut edge!
