Scallops are all the rage these days! Check out this awesome tutorial made by Michelle Mathey to jumpstart your scalloped creations.
The inspiration for this card came from this pillow by Anthropologie:
Start with several different Basic Grey 6 x 6″ paper pads – these are great because the patterns are shrunk down from their normal 12 x 12″ size – perfect for cardmaking! Punch a bunch of 1 1/2″ circles from the papers. Michelle used the scraps from the paper pads that she couldn’t seem to throw away – this gave them new life and there was no waste!
Lay out several rows of circles and make sure you like the combination of patterns and colors.
Add more rows of tape and keep adding rows of circles, staggering them a bit.
Michelle says, “This is as close as I will ever get to quilting but I got to do it with my favorite medium - PAPER!! Doesn’t it remind you of that Anthropologie pillow?” It sure does!
