Striped Scallop PuzzleThis card is as simple as a preschool puzzle!  Cut with the Striped Scallop Thinlit, the scallop pieces fit into the frame perfectly!

I finally “found” the amazing Transfer Adhesive Sheets, only to find them on the Retiring List just a couple of weeks later!  I’m glad I bought plenty.  And I sure hope there will be something similar in the upcoming catalog.  I can’t wait to see it!

This is the card I was working with when I created the Double Golden Striped Scallop card here.

Golden Double Striped ScallopWhen I was making an upcoming video with the Striped Scallop Thinlit, I tried stacking two pieces together.  Then I tried rotating one piece around 180 degrees.  Love, love, love!


This card is the result.  It goes together so quick.  It’s made with gold foil card stock on a brushed gold card base.

I was so excited I just had to show it off.

The video was a bit long.  In trying to make it short enough to upload, it’s a bit choppy.  Hope it’s not too distracting.
