Scalloped Dots

I ha\ve seen some great cards created with Papertrey Ink's new Large Scallop Border Die.   Of course I don't have it but that never stops me!!  You should know that by now.  I just had to decide how to recreate the great look like you can see HERE by Maile Belles. 

I used the smallest dots from Polka Dot Basics II and embossed them with white powder on pink, yellow, and black cardstock.  Then, I used my 1" circle punch and punched a bunch of circles.  Then it was just a matter of lining them up carefully and glueing them down.  I love the result!!  I will be sure to be doing this again with different layouts and color combos.  But I do love this combo! 

I hope you are inspired too.

Donelda, I love your card. I could case your card as I have the dp but do not have the die. Guess I really need to go order one. I love the different colored scallop borders and how you made this card.

I'm impressed at how perfect your faux-scalloped-die is! Great card.

I'd love to have that PTI die, too, but this is an impressive substitute! Perfect combination of striking colors, too!!
