Welcome! I had someone ask a question on Facebook yesterday that I knew would be more easily explained with some pictures. Since it's not the first time I've had that question, I thought I would put an answer here on my blog so that I could link to it next time someone asks! The question was regarding how to get a scalloped edge all the way around on a card, and the card just above was the one in question.
I'm sure that there are several ways to accomplish the same results, but this is my way. The cardstock that you see above is a 4-1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock, scored and folded at 5-1/2". I placed it on the MFT Blueprints 27 Die-namics, leaving the top of the die showing as pictured so that I do NOT cut the fold area.
Here is a picture of what it look like after you run it through your die-cutting machine. Notice that the fold is NOT scalloped. It is scored because of the stitching lines on the die, but it is not cut through. NOTE: I usually run this sandwich through my die-cutting machine two or three times to make sure that the die cuts though both layers of cardstock.
So when I stand the card base up, this is what it looks like--an intact fold, but no top scallop.
Finally I cut a single layer of the same cardstock and attach it to the card base. All scallops line up, I have a sturdy card base, and I have scallops at the top of my card too. This should work for pretty much any kind of shaped card, easy-peasy!
Hope that helps,
