"Belli Challenge #18- Piercing"


What is the Belli Challenge you ask? Belli = Embellishments. This weeks challenge is paper piercing. I came up with this one last minute. I really like the colors and how the over all card turned out. My friend Chris hosts a weekly embellishment challenge. To read more about it you can go here. I used my last piece of turquoise paper for this card so I have to get some more since I still have two packs of East Coast Prep DP and I love love love the colors in it. Check it out. For the "scalloped edge" I punched small circles using the SU 1/2 inch circle punch (the one that is the same size as the little pieces stamps) and glued them on the back of the paper so when you turn it around it looks like a scalloped edge. Clever ha?

Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Whisper White, East Coast Prep DP

Guess what you can also create the scalloped edge using the SU slit punch. Just punch next to each other in succession - turn punch over so you can see you are doing this - then just carefully pull the cut out strip off that creates the scallop. Make sense? Love all your ideas.
