Less Is More - Guest Designer!

Good morning LIMettes!
I am super excited this morning because I have been asked to be a guest designer this week at Less Is More for this week's challenge! Now, as much as I will miss getting up at 8am and quickly creating a card in 15 minutes, I have to say that I am sure I am enjoying a lie-in as this post publishes itself!

So this week the challenge is 


I have lots of things with scallops on, so I am going to show you a few cards this morning.

Here is the first...

For this one, I have used Delicate Designs embossing folder which I think gives a lovely lacy effect. The sentiment is from Vintage Verses and I the ribbon is Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Edge. The clever thing here is the scalloped circle. It is made by using the Small Heart punch. Clever eh? 

So onto the next card, which is for a commission...

For the background on this one I heat embossed the flourish from the Flowering Flourishes set. The sentiment is computer generated and foiled with Jen's Foil It machine, then cut out using the Labels Collection Framelits. The scalloped border was again created using the Small Heart Punch.

The final card is also for a commission and is similar to the previous card...

I made the scallops on this card using the Adorning Accents Edglits and the embossed strip is from the Adorning Accents Embossing Folders.

Cardstock - Whisper White, Daffodil Delight
Stamps - Vintage Verses (SAB)
Inks - Daffodil Delight, Wisteria Wonder
Embossing - Delicate Designs, Adorning Accents
Dies - Adorning Accents Edglits, Labels Collection Framelits
Punch - Small Heart
Ribbon - Ruffled Edge
