This challenge was to take a long/tall card from the catalog and change two elements. Now, I MISSED that last part, and had settled on the Season's Greetings card on page 43. I know, I hear you saying this looks nothing LIKE it, though!
I really only saw two elements ON the card - the die and the ribbon. I was going to just choose a new card, for an easier design, but decided to challenge myself!
I changed the die used, first. I used the Sizzix Square Scallop die, and cut it diagonally. At first, I placed it like an envelope, but the inspiration died right there! I decided to use both pieces in a diagonal instead.
I loved the blunt edges contrasted with the scallops, so continued the theme with the greeting, lace border punch, and even the trimmed scallop circle "bellie" on the side.
Thanks for looking!
