Giga Scalloped Heart



I just wanted to post a quick card that I made tonight with my new Marvy Giga Scalloped Heart punch .

The sentiment is from Hero Arts, and one I've always loved. I stamped it using VersaColor Raspberry pigment ink, then clear embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder . After the image was embossed I punched the scalloped heart looking at the under side of the punch for positioning.

I sponged a little raspberry ink around the edges of the scalloped heart, then mounted it on the card with 3M foam tape for dimension.

The background paper is from Paper Studio. It was so pretty that I didn't think it needed much, so I only added a couple of swirls using my Rhonna Farrer Flourishes stamped with the raspberry ink.

This was a quick and easy card...and I just love those sometimes!

I wish I had a scalloped heart punch! Michelle, WHAT SIZE IS THE PUNCH? Can you give the dimensions?

Paula,

You didn't leave a way for me to find you, so I hope you look here for the answer.

The widest point of the Giga scalloped heart is about 2.75", and it is about 2.75" in length.

Tks!
Michelle
