A few weeks ago when I made the Piano card I thought I would be able to make a little fence using the same Border System and double scallop punch - so here it is.
I bought this embossing folder ages ago (really, ages!) and this is the first time I've used it as I could never think what to do with it, but it seemed to fit well with this idea.
Here's how I made the fence..
1. Punch 4 times with the Double scallop punch to whatever height you want the fence and cut the scallops into 8 strips with the mini trimmer.
2. Mark the strips at 2cm from the top and 2cm from the bottom and cut 2 log narrow strips to join the fence panels together.
3. Using 3D foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L add one to the top and one to the bottom of each strip at the marks.
4. Add the long pieces in a straight line across the foam squares and trim off the excess.
I used the Tonic Studios mini daisy punch along with petals snipped from the Simplicity Classic Daisy punch for the leaves and the mini butterfly punch at the top of the card.

That is such a fabulous card...clever way to create the fence and love that embossing folder you have used. I was sitting last night reading a crafting magazine that my Mum had passed on to me. Flipped to a whole page of stamps and thought I know those. They were your new flower stamps Ruth....how exciting. They are so pretty and I hope all is going well with that venture. :-)ReplyDelete
