PPA 82--Scallops

Scallops! I had them for dinner last night, but these scallops are much prettier! Our theme at Pals Paper Arts is scallops! How will you make them a part of your project??

I really did not use the blues in my card because of this photo, but rather just by wanting to use the birdie print from the Botannical Gazette Designer Series Paper (Occasions Mini).

Here's how I made my scallops: I lined up seven 3/4" circles cut from Not Quite Navy. They just happened to fit across my birdie print, which is cut to 5-1/4" x 3".

I used the piece of 5-1/4" x 1" First Edition Designer Series Paper (Occasions Mini) to make sure my circles were straight as I adhered them across the card.

I added MORE scallops by double-matting my sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes with an oval and the oval scallop punch. I thought some pearls and a nice Marina Mist taffeta bow were appropriate!

Patti this is so pretty. The Botanical Gazzette is my FAV DSP!
Thanks for the tut on the scallops. I finally broke down and bought the die, but wish I'd known this trick first! I'll be sure to tell my club this cool tip.

Love the 3/4“ circle idea. Great idea for scallops! Your card has a very ”oceany“ feel to it for some reason - beautiful!
