WOJ 67--Swirls & Pearls

Whiff of Joys challenge is Swirls & Pearls. I had these swirly perals and thought they would be perfect for the challenge, but they were stark white, so I used my BG72Copic and colored them in.Using the same copic, I also colored in the hearts which were also stark white. I paper pieced the towel & her hair bow to match the background paper. This isn't one of my better pictures, not sure if it was the lighting, but it was hard to get a better shot.

To achieve the scallops around the card, I cut my paper at 5 x 10 scoring at 5, used my MS corner punch I punched each of the eight corners, for the corners at the fold, you need to put in one of the arms, and line up the line on the side of the corner punch with the fold. Then use the matching border punch to get the scallop affect around the card. When you cut the paper at this size and line up the corner at each side of the punch, it is 2 border punches for each side and comes out perfect each time. You can find the video at Splitcoast Stampers under "Punch Around the Page".

Paper: Basic Grey, Paper Trey Vanilla,
Extras: Long Rectangle Nesties, MS Matching Corner & Border Punch, Self Adhesive Swirl Perals, MS Branch Punch,& Sparkle Hearts & Dimentionals
