Here is another version of the Scallop Tag Concertina Card we made at the last Jems Quarterly Training Day.

Julie stepped it up to make this gorgeous Mothers Day Card, and as this version was just in my favourite colourways….. I just had to CASE immediately and make one for a friends special birthday being celebrated this week – Happy Birthday Alison! Now everyone knows how old you are!!!

So I mentioned 2 tutorials….

Firstly here is Julies Video Tutorial on making the Scallop Tag Topper Punch Concertina Card – thank you Julie! It is a truly BEAUTIFUL card in the flesh……

And secondly I have added the measurements at the end of this post for the box envelope to post it in. This card has more bulk when folded up than the original card we made so it requires a 1” deep box envelope. So my Envelope Punch Board was out again – a quick calculation – and a box made so it was all good to go…..

Here is a view of the folded card.
