Hello! Today I'll show you how you can make a two color scallop border using Spellbinders™ Classic Postage Stamp Edgeabilities. My photo of this card didn't come out well and the border gets a bit lost in the shadow, but it is a fun technique and looks great when you have good lighting.
I also want to spotlight two wonderful partner companies that generously gave products to the Spellbinders design team at our DT retreat in Phoenix last month, Bo Bunny (designer paper) and Creative Impressions (ribbon).
Sorry, I don't have step by step coloring photos this time, but here are the markers I used. (R08, YR07, YR04, Y17, Y21, YG95 and G05) After coloring, I cut out the image.
I cut a piece of gorgeous paper from the Bo Bunny Country Garden Collection 6 X 6 pad, using Spellbinders Labels Eighteen. Then I sponged around the edges while it was still in the die template, using Memento Bamboo Leaves.
The first time I used my Spellbinders Classic Postage Stamp Edgeabilities I notices the negative lefts behind when you cut the border had a nifty bump that would be a perfect scallop, so I took two sections of the negatives and layered them.
They fit perfectly to make a wonderful scallop border. And if you use two colors it makes such a neat look. I didn't make perfectly straight pieces, but I planned to cut the scallops under a piece of designer paper, so that part would be hidden.
I used another piece of the Bo Bunny dp and assembled the card. The card base is Pure Luxury Tan Leather (4 1/4 y 5 1/2). The sentiment (from The Giving Tree) is also stamped on dp and cut out using Spellbinders Tags and Flags from the Becky Fleck collection. I really love the gorgeous crepe ribbon from Creative Impressions! I definitely have to get more of that ribbon. So shimmery and winkled!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
