Papertrey Ink February Blog Hop Challenge
TGIF....and as an added bonus it happens to be the 25th!! This month's PTI blog hop theme was all about scallops. I know there will be a lot of great cards to check out so I'll keep the chit chat to a minimum!
So, I layered strips of scallops cut out with the medium scallop border punch, glued them all together and ran it thru my cuttlebug using the cloud dies.
I wasn't sure it would cut it cleanly, but it did. I had to make a few snips here and there with my scissors, but it did cut it better than I thought it would! I sponged some fresh snow ink over the "humps" before I adhered it all together to give it some depth. I really like how they turned out. I'm not sure the picture does them much justice! I'm already thinking of scalloped trees or a sunrise.....if only there were a few more hours in the day!
Thanks for stopping by!
