I saw the neatest thing on Mary Jo Albright's blog the other day. An easy way to make scallops! Scallops are everywhere in the Spring Summer 08 Collection. There is even a stamp set available for Sale-A-Bration called So Many Scallops.
Here is the card I made with some decorative scallops. See them in the Old Olive?
This card features the stamp set Merci from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration Brochure. Also featured are the Love & Happiness Rub-Ons that are available during Sale-A-Bration. You can earn the stamp set and the rub-ons free during Sale-A-Bration (runs Feb. 1 - March 17).
After the recipe I will include instructions on how to make the scallop border.
The layout for this card was from Joani's sketch challenge at Cards Made By Hand.
Here is the recipe for this card:
Cardstock: Taken with Teal, Old Olive, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Old Olive, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Circle Punches, Scallop Circle Punch, Love & Happiness Rub-Ons, Bali Breeze Designer Series Paper, Aqua Painter, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamond Glitter, Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain. Distresser Tool
To make the scallop border:
Step 1: Using the 1 3/8" circle punch, punch a circle in the paper you want to use for the scallop.
Step 2: Using the Scallop Circle Punch, punch directly over the circle made in Step 1.
Step 3: Take the hollowed out scallop circle and snip between one set of scallops.
Step 4: Unfurl scallops into a straight line and adhere to your card as desired.
