Guest Designer Avis Anderson and A Card a Day in the Month of May

Sunday, May 22, 2011

Happy May 23rd to you and yours! The Angel Company bloghop for the month of May continues. I am most happy to be the GUEST DESIGNER for today.

The faux scallop border was made by punching four circles, cutting them in half and butting them up against the 5 1/2" strip. Adhere to back with scotch tape. It's a great way to use your left over scraps so I hope this trick comes in handy for you. If you punch holes in the scalloped border, do it before adhering panel to card front.

Aren't you totally amazed at how very different our cards look when we all use the same sketch to begin with? My second card uses cardstock from our Emma Collection. I have changed the orientation of my card from landscape to portrait. The only other liberty that I took with the sketch was to add a thin scrap of patterned cardstock on top of the green strip.
