Scallop flower!!

Here's another decorated envelope for my card case. I wanted to show you the flower embellishment that I've made for the front of the envelope and how this can be made using the SU Scallop punch.

Here are the tools you will need:
* SU Scallop punch
* SU 3-flower punch
* snips
* pencil
* ruler
I've punched out from Rose Red cardstock, a scallop punch shape.

Next, with ruler and pencil, I've drawn lines as shown in the photo.
With my SU snips, I've cut along each line, but not quite to the middle. The photo will show you how each segment is seperate. From here you can punch some more flowers to adhere to this flower as I've done in my card, or you can decorate as you please. I've also secured the flowers with a brad and sponged the edges with the Rose Red ink pad. I'm sure it will work well with all kinds of paper; give it a go!!
