Good Morning My Stamping Friends, Today I'm going to show you a card that I CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) almost exactly from the current Stampin' Up! Idea Book and catalog (page 174). I changed the sentiment up a bit and I wanted to show you how I got a small scallop oval.
Here is my card (the supply list is at the end of the post).
The card in the catalog used the scallop oval punch but since I changed my sentiment I felt that the scallop oval punch was too large. So, I stamped my sentiment on whisper white and punched it out with our small oval punch. I then took a piece of melon mambo and punched out a scallop oval. The proportions just weren't right and to fix it I needed a smaller scallop oval. Lately I've seen a lot of punching shapes from other punched shapes so I decided to give that a try. I punched the scallop and then put it back into the punch so I could only see 7 scallops, and I punched again. Those directions are probably as clear as mud so here is a photo of what I'm describing.
What do you think? I hope you like the card. Leave a comment and let me know. Now I want to see you CASE a card from one of our current Stampin' Up! catalogs. Let me know where you post a photo of it and I'll visit and leave a comment.
Hopefully I'll see you at my Open House this Friday. Visit my webpage calendar at http://www.roseelleneastman.stampinup.net/ where you can RSVP for the event.
