Pocket Silhouettes in Scallops

What a great little set these Pocket Silhouettes! With its four organic images and two sentiment stamps, it offers such a variety of uses!

Today's card I made as a top fold so I could use my Scallop Edge Punch on the lower edge. I added a strip of rust cardstock to the back of the card to highlight the scallops. I also made two score lines above the scallops for visual texture and interest.

The central image stamp was inked with markers in rust and artichoke then stamped on white. This was punched out with the new Square Scallop Punch and layered on rust. A 2 3/4" square of artichoke was punched with the Scallop Edge Punch once in the center of each of the four edges resulting in this design. This was layered onto white to tie the focal point together and make it visually pop.

The artichoke layer was adhered to a Blush Blossom cardstock base. Artichoke grosgrain ribbon between this layer and the scored lines finishes off the card.

I love our scallop punches!!
