Scallop Punch

Wow!! You can do so much with the new scallop punch!! Here is a card I made. I started out with a 2 7/8" square of Green Galore and just punched each side. (You can see it below). Then I stamped the Serendipity saying on WW with Tangerine Tango and punched it out with the large oval punch, I layered it on a Nestibilitie oval. It is mounted on the green with diminsionals. The Rick Rack is made with a 1" strip and punched on both sides, lining up the scallops opposite each other. When you punch out the scallop you end up with a nice strip of cardstock that I then used above and below the rick rack.
You can make a rope with it, by lining the scallops just slightly off from each other. I also stamped it with Weathered Background to give it some texture, then I used the white gel pen to draw the lines. Half is with the white gel pen, and the other half is with the Night of Navy (I like the white better).
The beads and pearls are made by lining up the scallops the same way. You can use the 1/4" punch to put the center circles, then the 3/4" circle punch to fit behind the beads.
The bottom is just two scallops. The black one I used the anywhere hole punch and just punched holes in the scallops.
See what else you can come up with and let me know.

Have a great day!!
