Got Scallops?


This is another Convention piece, this time a card that measures 6 inches x 3 inches. Aside from the yummy Fairy Tale ribbon and the cool rhinestone in the middle of the flower, this card features scallops along the front edge. (That's a strip of Cutie Pie Designer Paper peeking out under the scallops...too cute!)

So...how are the scallops done, she asked coyly?

It's easy if you have a Stampin' Up! 3/16 inch corner rounder punch. :-)

Start by removing the paper guide from the punch. It slides off quite easily. Turn the punch over and line it up along the bottom edge of the piece you want to punch. (The right side of the punch should be at the right vertical edge of your piece.) Punch once, and move the punch over to the left, very slightly overlapping the left side of the scallop you just punched. Punch again. Continue to slide and punch along the length of the piece until you have the number of scallops you wish. That's it!
