When my customers ask me what one punch I would recommend as their first purchase, I always say the same thing... "the circle scallop punch is the one I use the most". It can turn a plain card into something special and it's a fantastic way to highlight a stamped image, especially if it's small and might otherwise get lost on a card front.
So of course, since I have said the circle scallop punch is the best, I felt I should do a class showcasing just why I think it is. With two circle scallop punches now in the SU! range, it just means twice the "bestness".
The inspiration for this scrunched scalloped flower comes from my Upline Carol (thanks Carol!!). She demonstrated it to us at one of our meetings. It reminds me of the Chrysanthemums (Mum's to all you Canadians!) that are all about at the moment. I made the wee card to fit inside the box by folding a piece of card stock and then punching it out. Teeny tiny but perfect to go inside this box with a treat.
This card showcases with a few snips with scissors, you can make yourself a garden of blooms. For the Orange flowers I have cut between each valley of the scallops and for the red flower; every second one. Super simple but super sweet!
Made using several circle scallops; folded and cut, you end up with this floral masterpiece. Isn't it just beautiful? I got this idea from the SU! demonstrator site that I have access to.
The projects for this class are made using some of the new In Colours. Mmmmmm. Not only are the colours delicious looking, but their names conjure up thoughts of food too! Concord Crush, Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz. Time to eat!
Class: Wednesday October 27th, 7 - 9.30 pm. $15. Email to save yourself a seat.
