Presscut scalloped semi-circle die Halloween card with 2 Cute Ink Turtle Pumpkin digi-stamp

Presscut scalloped semi-circle die Halloween card, by Paperesse.

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?).

  4. Shani, what a great card! I see why you like that die cut for the base card shape - a really fun and different fold! I really like the way you used the enamel dots both with the colors and the placement - you have an eye for that! I do have that drip edge and I like it as green goo - and that font you shared with us is fabulous. I like it every time I see you use it... really need to get around to using it myself!! LOL!
