Pratical Punches & Stylish Scallops...

You've probably noticed how everything from dishes to clothing is making waves with scalloped edges this year. The vintage feel mingles feminine curves with modern flair. You'll find this look easy to duplicate using only Stampin' Up! products.

To create a perfectly simple scalloped edge, use either the Slit Punch or Small Corner Rounder Punch. The Slit Punch creates a deeper scallop, while the Small Corner Rounder Punch produces a shallow scallop. To use the Small Corner Rounder Punch, first remove the plastic guide and insert a flat edge of the cardstock into the punch. After punching once, continue to line up the edge of the punch with the previous punched scallop for the entire length of the cardstock, sliding the punch over after each punch and lining the edges up. It's that simple!

This card was made using the pick A Petal stamp set, one of the new DS Papers, a Rhinestone Brad and the Slit Punch for the scallops

This card was made using the new Pick a Petal stamp set, some of the new DS Papers and the Small Corner Rounder for the scallops. I also used one of the new Rhinestone Brads.
