# bird on a branch 2 # Embossing Plate

Scallop Oval Love

One of the things I love the best about Cheery Lynn Designs XL Stackers Nesting Dies is how big they truly are.  You can use the dies for the shape of your card.  For my card today, I am using the XL Scallop Oval Stackers Nesting Dies, the next to the largest in the set, not the biggest but the next size smaller!   I began with a 5 x 7 inch folded card.  I placed it on the die so that just a small amount of scallops do not cut down the folded side of the card.  Below you can see just a bit of the die poking out along the top fold of the card. 


I embossed the card first then cut it with my Big Shot.  Here is the result, a scallop oval card base that measures 4.75" x 6.5" when folded in half....

As you can see both sides of the card have the scallop edges with just a bit of the fold left along the top.  Next I cut and embossed a red mirror card oval with my XL Petite Hearts embossing plate.  These plates are 5 7/8" x 7 1/2" inches, a wonderful large size.  Next came a smaller white scallop oval, embossed with my XL Dotted Swiss embossing plate


Then I added the word LOVE, die cut from red mirror card with my School Days Alphabet dies.  Then using this wonderful DP from Bo Bunny and the Poinsettia 2 die  I created the flower.  The reds really do match the mirror card, reds are so hard to photo.  Using my Bird on a Branch 2 die I added the leaf swirls.  As I said, finished size of this gorgeous card is 4.75 x 6.5 inches, perfect for a 5 x 7 envelope.
