HYCCT1217 Pinking Shears Chatter Thread

Challenge Title: Pinking Shears
Hostess: muzbysmom (Lynn )
Keyword: HYCCT1217
Date: Wednesday, October 17

When I think about October I think about Breast Cancer Awareness Month and when I think of Breast Cancer Awareness Month I think of pink. When I think of pink I think of pinking shears - those strange scissors that fascinated me in my Mother's sewing kit. Your challenge is to make a card with a decorative edge!

The first thought I had for decorating the edge of a card involved cutting with things like decorative edge scissors, edgelets, or decorative edge border punches. And then when out browsing at a craft store I ran across an embossing folder from Cuttlebug called Pinking Stitch. It only embosses the edge of the card stock. I then remembered the Framed Tulips embossing folder from Stampin' Up. It just embosses the edge of a card also. Who's to say that's not a decorative edge? I'm sure there must be many other ways to decorate the edge of your card! I'm looking forward to seeing what all of you come up with!

Fuzzy Bunnies
I combined with today's sketch. I hope you can see my decorative edge! It's so dark and gloomy that I had to change the angle I was taking my photo at - but I think I can spot some blue sky now so I might get a better photo.

Cool! Congrats....I'll be working on it after work tonight.

muzbysmom 10-17-2012 05:23 AM

Nice card Sabrina! Is that scalloped ribbon? It does decorate an edge of the card!

So a torn edge would count? It doesn't necessarily have to be cut with scissors or a die?

Used the sketch and this week's colors to make a fall card with trimmings! Fall Birthday Sketch

I had a decorative edge cut along the right edge of the card. It didn't show so well in my first photo (poor light!!) but I got a better one in a brief sunny interval :D. I hope to make another one for this, too - just wanted to get today's sketch challenge in!!

Cute card Sue!!

It's Ree 10-17-2012 01:12 PM

I was fascinated by my mothers pinking shears, too! Actually, I HATED sewing...until a few years ago. Now, I can't stop sewing and I have my own pair of fabric (and paper) pinking shears. :)
Thank you!
Here is my card.

HYCCT1217 Partridge in a Pear Tree
 
Found this cute stamp from Stampendous- Partridge Tree- and had to use it, along with SU's Circle of Friendship for this birthday card. Added some ribbons, an embossed background from my stamping buddies, and a vertical light green pinking shears edged border. Here's Partridge in a Pear Tree
