Happy Easter! I finally have some time to play..I am so far behind on my techniques and challanges! I had an Easter workshop while my sister was out from BC and haven't done a thing since! So today I started preparing for April's technique classes and the 1st card I completed using this "ruffle" technique. It is a little tricky at first but once I got the hang of it it was a breeze!
This is done by cutting a piece of DP 1" and then using the scalloped edge punch along the entire 12" side. Then run this through your crimper. The crimping makes it easy to attach your piece to a round edge and add dimension. I used sticky tape to do this on a 1 3/4" punch circle, addded my "ruffle", punched another 1 3/4" punch circle from Chocolate Chip, a 1 3/8" circle of Pirouette Pink and stamped my image onto a 1 1/4" circle of whisper white. I used red glitter to make the cherry and topped it with a dot of crystal effects. You would never know that the image is stamped in chocolate chip! This image is one of 8 in a level 1 hostess set currently available from SU!
