Soul Mates

This is a Folded Paper Frame on a 5 1/4" card base. Melissa at Tuesday Morning Sketches gives a link to Splitcoast Stampers so that you can get the instructions to join in on her challenge this week. My new little Inkadinkado stamp set was just perfect for this technique. I'm still corner challenged when I'm sewing the zig-zag stitch, but that would mean I need more practice. I would also like to give you a little hint, which is not original to me, but here goes. The scallops around my sentiment oval are punched circles placed around the edge, so you can put scallops around everything with this technique. Pretty cool, huh?

2 Challenges:
Supplies: 5 1/4" Square River Rock card blank, Papers: Stampin Up-Night of Navy, River Rock, Designer Series Paper Prints Certainly Celery sponged with River Rock ink, Designer Series Paper Pattern Stack Subtles, Stamp: Inkadinkado-Spring Mini Clear Assort., Ink: Stampin Up-Night of Navy, River Rock, River Rock marker, Spellbinders Nestabilities-Classic Scallop Squares Lg. , Stampin Up-Scallop Trim border punch, Marvy small circle punch, Coluzzle Oval Shape cutter template, sewing machine, Stampin Up dimensionals.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G ♥
