Fathers Day Cards...

Tomorrow I am going away for the weekend to the Lake District. A 'Hen' weekend from work, 35 girls all wearing cowboy hats. If you see us I would move rapidly in the opposite direction. We are not known for being quiet! Anyway, I won't be blogging for a couple of days so I thought I would share the Fathers Day cards that I made for my Dad and posted on the Creative World blog this morning.. There are two - one from me, one from my brother.









I took these photographs (really poor as it is pouring with rain and very dark so I had to take them indoors and the artificial light in here is terrible) to show the corner punch I use to make a scalloped edge. Mine are EK Success punches and I bought mine from Artbase. They have a frame that you use to line up the corners of your paper but it comes off so that you can punch along a straight edge. They are so useful and I've used them on nearly everything I've made since buying them.





edited to add: Jackie - I have the large (purple) and medium (green) punches

So glad to have found this. I have tried and always screw up but now that I have a picture I hope I do better. Thanks for sharing.

I love my corner rounder for scalloped edges too :)

I really love all the stripe papers you have been using on your cards!

Have a great weekend away, I hope the rain stops so there aren't 35 bedraggled hens running around the Lake District all weekend ;)

Thanks for replying off to have a look now. It looks so much easier to use these punches for a curved edge.
