TIPS: NOTE: Use your Big Shot Platform with Thin Die Adapter (Or Multipurpose Platform with all tabs closed), and a top and bottom Cutting Plate to cut your Scallop Rectangle.
1. Cut your cardstock at least 3-1/2″ wide and 1/4″ longer than you want your Rectangle. 2. Put your Framelit on the cardstock close to the center of your Big Shot. 3. Make sure your cardstock and Scallop Square Framelit are lined up straight on your Big Shot Platform. 4. Leave at least 1/16″ cardstock showing between the Cutting Plate and the inside edge of your Framelit. Run through your Big Shot. 5. Trim off excess cardstock beside Scallop cuts. 6. Turn your Framelit upside down so you see the Scallop Cutting Edges. Place your partially cut Scallop cardstock on the Framelit lining up at least 2 Scallops on each side depending on how long you want your Scallop Rectangle to be. 7. Place Framelit and cardstock on Big Shot Platform and cutting plate with cardstock still lined up in the Framelit Scallops. Make sure the cardstock is lined up straignt. Cover the part of the cardstock you want cut with the top Cutting plate leaving a gap between the edge of the cutting plate and the inside edge of the Framelit. Run through your Big Shot. Take out your Scallop Rectangle and use on your project.

~Middle Clouds: 2=7/8″ x 5-1/2″ Whisper White cardstock. Cut the puffy cloud edgelit at an angle. I turned this one over and sponged on the ‘back’ so the clouds would not be exactly the same.

INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Thick Very Vanilla card base at 5-12″ x 8-1/2″. SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your patterned paper at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through your Big Shot with the Sweethear embossing folder. Use the coordinating Sweet & Sassy Heart Framelit to cut out the center heart. While at your Big Shot, cut out the Celebrate from Elegant Eggplant cardstock. Glue onto the bottom of the DSP. 3. Cut a Window Sheet at 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″. Attach to the back of your DSP Heart cut out with SNAIL around all four sides. 4. Attach Foam Adhesive Strips on the DSP back about 1/8″ from the edge of the Heart cut out. Make sure there are NO gaps in the Foam Adhesive Strip otherwise the Gold Flakes will escape and get everywhere! Also put the Foam Adhesive Strips around the edge of the card.
NOTE: If you do not want the Gold Glitter Flakes to stick to the inside of the Foam Adhesive Strips, either run your fingers along the adhesive sides or run your Embossing Buddy along the sides to remove the sticky there. I personally like the Gold around the Heart edges so I didn’t do this. 5. Lay your DSP on your card base to determine where to put your pile of Gold Glitter Flakes. Remove the DSP. Put your Gold Glitter Flakes on the card base in the center of where the Heart will cover. Remove the Adhesive backing and put on your card base. Press firmly. Now you can “test” out to see if the Shaker Card works. 🙂
