Two in One Challenge!

Hello Crafters,

Today I share a card that I have submitted for two card challenges, the first at Just Add Ink ~ just add a sunburst, and secondly at Pals Paper Arts ~ colour challenge (PPA194).

It’s Friday and the long weekend is about to begin, but my time off started yesterday (lucky me!) so I wanted to put some time aside today to enter some challenges and it just happened that these two challenges I was able to combine.

I began with an A5 size card base, measured the middle of either end and slid the card into the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, then trimmed off the excess. From the left side I scored at 3-1/4″ and folded in. Then decorate.

I have used the colour scheme from the colour challenge and at first, I wondered how it would turn out. Not colours I would normally think to combine, but I was pleasantly surprised.

The embossing folder was the only non SU item I used.

As you may have noticed by past blog posts, I have loved playing with the Scallop Tag Topper punch, as it is so versatile. You do not have to just keep it for making tags, but so many other things!!! See some of my other posts using this punch to make boxes, treat boxes, card in a box, chocolate treats, and more! The Scallop Tag Topper punch is available in the Occasions Catalogue, click here to view it online.

Here it is open. I stamped the Simply Stars stamp set on the inside for a bit of interest as well as on some card stock and cut out for the front of the card. These were adhered with Stampin’ dimensionals.


Tied together with a piece of Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon.

Here is a close up of the embossed background and the stars showing the 3D effect created using Stampin’ Up Dimensionals and the gorgeous large rhinestone gives it that little sparkle!


Be sure to have a go at some Challenges, they are great fun to play along and see what others design, so head over to Just Add Ink and Pals Paper Arts for more inspiration!

  1. Kate this is a terrific card – love the colours, the style (made a couple of the tag topper cards recently myself) and especially love your sunbursts. What a really delightful card. Thanks so much for joining the challenge fun at Just Add Ink this week.


  2. I do love this style of card Kate and your colours and textured sunburst is just perfect for this weeks challenge at Just Add Ink. Thanks so much for joining us!


  3. How fabulous do those colours look together? Kate this is a GORGEOUS card!! I just love your take on the sunburst challenge, with the colours, stamps and embossing folder you’ve used. It’s a real “wow”. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink!


  4. Great card – I like the layout of the card and the two parts that open. The Sunburst panel is lovely with both the different card/papers and the embossing as well. This is a great effect. Chantell JAI
