Thrifty Thursday Scrapbook Tip: Circle Punch for Scallop Border
I'm still working on baby cards and decided that I wanted a larger scallop border for the bottom of the card. I don't have one, so I needed to get creative again. This one is my first attempt with a circle punch.
I used a 1 1/2" circle punch and cut the circles in half and then adhered them to the bottom of my base. Then I attached the other layers.
I used dimensionals under the window punch for the "hanging" pieces on the right.
The bear needed a bow if the window punches were going to have them.
Here is a closer look at the punches creating the border. I overlapped them slightly. I'll be trying other puncehs later this weekend. I'm thinking a 3/4" or even the flower circle punch will work as well. I'll show you what I come up with!
Here is another view of the card.
I started with a base of Close to Cocoa, then the border in More Mustard, Bashful Blue, and Certainly Celery. The stamping is done on Very Vanilla with Basic Brown ink. I don't remember where I got the pattern paper.
Thanks for looking!
