Weekend Sketch Challenge #20


Friday mornings are one of my "free" mornings. Zachary is in Kindergarten and Caleb is at nursery school. So instead of cleaning the house or running errands, I started Beate's weekend sketch challenge. I finished it after lunch while the boys were playing a game on the computer.

Technique: Scalloped Edge

To create a scalloped edge on card stock there a only a few simple steps. Take SU's corner rounder punch and gently remove the base of the punch. Place the card stock in the punch and press to punch out a scallop. Move the punch over so you can see a tiny bit of space of the previous scallop and punch again. Continue on. Just a note: I often do not begin at the edge of the cardstock but slightly in from the edge so that the first scallop is not a "whole" scallop. Hope that makes sense.

Recipe:

Stamps: Fun & Fast Notes, Broque Motifs (swirls on pink dp), Butterfly (unknown)
Paper: My Mind's Eye Designer Paper, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White Craft, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Corner Rounder Punch, Photo Corners Punch, Scalloped Circle Punch, White Grosgrain Ribbon, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, Blender Pen, Paper Piercer

5 1/2 x 4 1/4
