Hap-bee birthday

As a followup to my post from last week where I challenged you to pull out your deco scissors and get busy....this week I am going to tell you how you can get the look of those fancy border punches, but with the scissors you probably already have in your drawer!

And....because I just can't seem to get enough of the Sprinklin Love Bee Cling Rubber Stamp by he is again!!

So...first you'll need a pair of scallop scissors and a small hole then scallop edge your cardstock on all four sides. Then, take your hole punch and punch a hole inside each scallop; this will create that great border that you can get with those border punches... I find that drawing a line on the back of my cardstock helps to keep the holes aligned.

I stamped my little pal and colored him in with Prismacolor pencils...cut him out and popped him up on some new Helmar Zap Dots... I then printed my sentiment onto cardstock and cut it out...added the Prima flower and and here is my final card....

Stamp: Sprinklin Love Bee Cling Rubber Stamp by Stampendous, Cardstock: Coredinations; Flower: Prima; Scallop scissors: Fiskars; Color pencils: Prismacolor

I hope you'll give creating your own borders using your scallop scissors and a hole sure to link it up so we can take a peek!!

Happy crafting....Lynda
