Hi everyone! I need to thank my friend Sherry for coming over and helping me with this tutorial. She agreed to be my model. Sherry would like you all to know that the night before these photos were shot she shelled about 10 pounds of pecans so her hands are not up to their usual model stature! LOL!
Seriously, we had fun doing these and after the photos were taken we colored and played. One thing I'd like to mention is that Sherry brought some squigglefly images she had printed out with her because she wanted to color them while she was here. Her ink smeared a little when she colored with the copics. I heat set it, and they still smeared a little. My printer ink does not do this if I heat set. So if any of you are experiencing this problem, we solved it by spraying the image with a fixative before coloring.
Okay, on with the tutorial! First I'll show you the card
Isn't she darling? This is one of the newest images at squigglefly and I just love it! I added tiny little jewels to her earrings. The words were printed out on the computer in a font called Huxtable. This is how I made the stand up scallop part in the fold.
Mark the fold line of your cardstock with a pencil line. I also marked the center of my die (Thank you Sherry for that tip!). Decide where you want your pop out to be and place your die on the line lining it up with the center of the die.
Place your C plate on top lining up the edge of the plate with the pencil line.
So you have your A Plate, B Plate, cardstock with die in place on top, and now your C Plate lined up on what will be the fold in your card. Run it through your cuttlebug.
This is what your card will look like when it comes through
Now score your card on the pencil line, avoiding the scallop part.
Erase your pencil line, and fold the card!
This could be done with any shape die; it doesn't have to be a circle! I hope you enjoyed the tutorial, and thanks for looking!
