Presscut scalloped semi-circle die Halloween card with 2 Cute Ink Turtle Pumpkin digi-stamp
I like large dies that cut a complete card and Crafts-too Presscut dies have some good ones. Like the Presscut step card die used on this Happy Fall card (search the blog for 'step card' and you'll see that one used a lot) and the oval swing die used for this New Year's card; so when I saw the scalloped semi-circle die I decided to give it a try.
Photos of the die (here), show what is purported to be the back and front of the die-cut, which I have inverted for this design. This gives the card a step card/pop-up look. My message, which you can't see, is on the side behind my stamped image. The card folds down flat for mailing,
2 Cute Ink's Turtle Pumpkin digi is the focal point. The sentiment was created with free Channel font. Another die making its debut on this card is the Sizzix Thinlits Drip Edge die used on the base (very Halloween-ish, don't you think?).
