Default How to make large scallop borders on cards?

Here's an example of a card with a large scallop strip - I'd love to make one but can't find the technique. Please help! Thanks much!

Default Scallop edge

It looks like that card edge was made with the slot punch.
If you take a piece of card stock and slip the punch until it can go no further on the paper then punch. Line up the next scallop and punch again.
You end up with a strip that measures just over an inch to the top of each scallop that you can layer under a piece of card stock.
You can also get an edge without having to layer by using the corner rounder without the paper guide. The larger corner rounder works the best. I forget which one SU is selling now.

Stampin up has a scallop border punch try looking at stampinup.com and see if you can order it from a demo online.

You can also get a large size scallop border by punching out circles and adhering them evenly to the back of a piece of cardstock using snail adhesive or double-sided tape. I've done this using 1/2" and 1" circle punches.

I agree that it looks like it was made with the slot punch. To make scallops with the slot punch, you start with a strip of cardstock and punch the slots on the opposite side of the strip.

Yes, slot punch from SU, or a corner rounder with the corner "piece" removed. I got mine for about 4 dollars and it works great.

It's definitely not made with a corner rounder -- I've done a border with that punch a few times, and the scallops don't come out as rounded as the sample given. The SU! "Slit" punch (the slot one is a different shape altogether, sort of like a mini version of the word window) seems to be the most likely answer. I've also seen similar borders made simply by lining up a row of circles! The ribbon used in this case would easily hide the place where the circles come together.

Here's a link to a tutorial that Julia Stainton did on her blog a while back that shows how to make a scallop border with the slit punch: http://bellepapier.blogs.splitcoasts...hort-tutorial/

Happy scallop making !

Here's a link from the SCS resources where Beate did a tutorial on making scallop circles and borders using the corner rounder punch: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...loped_borders/

Enjoy !

I agree that this particular border appears to be made of punched circles.

Yes, I agree that is the slit punch. I never use it because I can never line it up properly!!! I like the corner rounder better for that kind of detail, a little easier, but yes, a more shallow scallop. I should probably just get the SU Scallop punch and be done with it

My first scallop border was made with su slit punch. I recognized it right off. I am a newbie, so you can do it GF. Order one and go for it.
