Scallops of Different Sizes
I saw this border idea used on another card and couldn't wait to use it. It's important to use the patterned paper with the smaller pattern when cutting the smaller scallops and using the border punch with the larger scallops on the relatively larger patterned paper. To give the Christmas tree some interest, I first stamped the cardstock with a paisley patterned background stamp before I punched it out. Because of the thickness of the Distress Stickles I was not able to write a fine line and dipped the edges of the tree in a puddle of it.
