Scallop Circles

I have had such a busy day but was itching to try today's technique before bed! It's such a great idea, you can make scallop circles using your Stampin' Up BORDER punches! The full tutorial is on Splitcoast Stampers under TLC320.

I'm always sending girlie cards to my mum and my sister in England ~ so I thought I'd make a card especially for my Dad today. He's a nautical man through and through. His early career was in the boat building dockyards of Liverpool where he worked as a Naval Architect. Needless to say, when I saw the new set "The Open Sea" it had my Dad's name written ALL OVER IT :)

So here's his card, I had to make the sentiment using my computer, but I love how it turned out, I hope he likes it too!!! Mum, I know you read my blog, shhhhhh, don't tell him its on its way! Hee hee.

Stamps : The Open Sea
Cardstock : Naturals Ivory, Night of Navy
Ink : Early Espresso
Accessories : Scallop Trim Border Punch
