Quick Yet Elegant
Here’s a quick 5-1/4″ square Pink Pirouette card I designed for my stamp class last weekend (after starting with a View-Master card, we needed something quick and easy). We used the Scallop Edge Punch on a 2-7/8″ x 2-7/8″ piece of Kiwi Kiss card stock to create the fancy border.

The Say It with Scallops image was stamped with Riding Hood Red ink on Whisper White card stock and punched out with the new Scallop Square Punch. I used the extra wide Pink Pirouette grosgrain ribbon to embellish the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

    WOW! I love the way you used the scallop border punch to make that border! Will definitely have to bookmark this one to use at an upcoming workshop!

    Can you share the directions on how you made the beautiful border around the RMHC stamp. I would love to make that card for a special friend!
