Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge

TGIF! It's time for another Papertrey blog hop! This month the focus is on scallops. 

I made a scalloped butterfly using a edger punch & a PTI butterfly die, then added another scallop to the bottom of my card.

Tip: I recommend using patterned paper rather than cardstock to create your butterfly. I found (at least with my Cuttlebug) that the butterfly becomes too thick for the die to cut through. I also used a thinner generic white cardstock to attach the patterned paper to (again to diminish thickness).

Hope you like this! Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Cupcake Collection (PTI)
Paper: SU textured cardstock, Bitty Dot Basics pp
Ink: Fresh Snow
Accessories: PTI butterfly die, SU scallop edge punch, PTI button, Michaels pearls
