Colors in Vogue: Pink & Chocolate

If asked to name my favorite colors, I’d probably have to say pink and brown, aka Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip. Or actually, probably any shade of pink with any shade of brown would work, but here’s a card I created for my March Stamps in the Mail Club project kit.

While the Stamps in the Mail Club isn’t open to new participants right now (you have to wait til May to jump in), you can certainly still join my Big Shot Die of the Month Club, if you’re looking for ready-to-stamp idea kits.

The main card base here features the Scallop Square Die for Stampin’ Up!’s Big Shot diecut machine.

**BIG SHOT TIP** To make the folded scallop card, just fold your cardstock in half, then place it on the die so that the folded edge is INSIDE the die. When you cut the cardstock, the fold isn’t cut off, so you have your cool folded scallop card! This works for any of the large dies: cards can be created with the Top Note die, the Scallop Circle Die or any of the large shapes. (check out a video tutorial I did with the Scallop Circle Die last year)

The card also features matching Chocolate Chip embellishments–Chocolate Chip Patterns Designer Series Paper, Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon and Sweet Pea Stitched Felt with Chocolate Chip centers. The rest of the embellishments are pink, from the Sweet Pea Felt and the Sherbet Designer Buttons.

Wondering where the white scallop border piece came from? It’s so easy! Just cut a strip of white cardstock with the bottom edge of the Scallop Square Die, then trim it down with a paper cutter so it’s just one ‘scallop’ wide. It makes an easy and perfectly matching design element for your card!
