SCALLOP EDGE MEDALLION BUTTERFLY

I love the look of this Scallop Edge Medallion ... it gives great depth to any stamped image! With the help of this Scallop Edge Medallion Tutorial, it's a super easy technique! For this 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" card, I combined the colors of Basic Gray and So Saffron. The designer paper is Walk In The Park from the current Occasions Mini Catalog ... only available through June 30. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp Basic Gray polka dots over the solid So Saffron butterfly image - twice. One image is cut out and adhered in the center with a mini glue dot.RECIPE
Stamps: Flight of the Butterfly
Paper: Walk In The Park DP, Basic Gray, So Saffron, and Whisper White CS
Ink: So Saffron and Basic Gray
Tools: Scallop Border Punch, Paper Piercer & Mat Pack, Stamp-a-ma-jig
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dot

Very pretty card, the color combo is really cool too. Can you tell me the measurements for the layered Scallop. I really like that technique, but when I attempted it, mine had to go more of a shadowed look on one side. Thanks!

Great card here, Nancy! Just think how much easier it'll be once we can get that awesome new butterfly punch!
