Scallops & Glitter

Today's card covers two bases, PTI's monthly blog hop and Make It Monday #3.  Our challlenge for the blog hop is to use scallops and the Make It Monday challenge is to use a straight line glitter strip using scor-tape.  For the scallops, I cut the bottom front of my white card base 1/2 " shorter and adhered a scallop strip of Aqua Mist cardstock to line up with the card back.  I paper pieced 5 cute little baby images in colors of lemon tart and hawaiian shores.  Each image was popped up twice so it has some great dimension.  I embellished the images with some felt, twine, buttons and a few rhinestones.  These images fit absolutely perfectly into the scallops made by PTI's large scallop die.  I stamped Polka Dot Basics #1 onto the white cardstock after I masked off the image from Fillable Frames #4.  I cut a little Spellbinder tag and stamped the sentiment on it in true black ink.  A few lemon tart buttons and some more rhinestones embellish the tag.  To fulfill the Make It Monday challenge, I added a strip of hawaiian shores felt and ran a strip of score-tape over it.  Prisma Glitter adds a wonderful sparkly touch to this sweet little baby card.
Stamps:  Night, Night Moon, Polka Dot Basics #1, Fillable Frame #4, Technique Tuesday Cute as a Button
Ink:  Hawaiian Shores, Lemon Tart, True Black
Accessories:  Felt, Score-Tape, prisma glitter, rhinestones, buttons, ric-rack die, large scallop die, twine
