Greenhouse Floral

As promised, today I'm going to show you how to create this gorgeous border using the Scallop Trim Corner Punch. When I finished this card, I just went wow!! Actually, this photo and my photography skills, do not do this card justice. In real life, these flowers look so real, it's breathtaking! Okay, just come on over to my house and check it out -- you'll see exactly what I mean! So, on to creating this gorgeous border. Bear with me because it's hard to take a picture and hold the punch at the same time!!! To view the pictures in more detail, just click on them!!

Starting in the middle of the cardstock (I have a pencil mark), insert the punch all the way into the cardstock and punch.

Now, move the punch over to the left overlapping the previously punched image as shown in the picture. Continue this step until the entire border is punched.

You can see how the border will look (although this was my first one and I didn't have it centered correctly - thus the reason for putting the line on my cardstock as I showed in the first picture!) Now notice the left over piece? You can use that to layer on top of the punched image as shown in the end card.

Now, what I did here for my card is cut a piece of cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" and created a longer border. After putting the leftover trim piece through the Big Shot using my a texture plate, I adhered it above my scallop trim edge. Then I cut this piece down to 5-1/4" x 4" - that way the leftover trim would fit all the way across the cardstock.

The Scallop Trim Corner punch is the the Occasions Mini Catalog. Below is the information on this awesome and versatile product!!

Experiment and play with this technique! You'd be surprised what you can do with these corner punches!!
