As I mentioned I am not good at keeping flowers blooming in our garden. I could be on 24 hour a day bug watch and still not find the tiny insects that are eating away at my beautiful flowers. So I scaled down, got a couple of shrubs for the garden, and potted flowers for my little men. Thankfully I always have luck getting paper flowers to last, which brings me to the tutorial for today.
Head on over to Couture Cardstock to see how I created the paper scallop border (as shown above), the supply list, and the completed project. All of the layouts and cards posted on the blog have been absolutely amazing!

Tomorrow stop by for a visit to see some new creations using MelJen's Designs, Couture Cardstock, and Nikki Sivils all together. Also, the GIVEAWAY is coming! I have a great Nikki package ready to be given away to one luck winner. Stay tuned....



  1. Andrea, I just checked out your tutorial. Your card is stunning!

  2. You are so funny! I too have a problem keeping something alive. It is herbs. We moved to another state almost 7 yrs ago. This is the first we had cable tv. I learned all about herbs and now love thyme, basil, rosemary and sage. For the last 3 or 4 yrs I have bought basil @ Lowe's and have killed within about 3 days. LOL So I stopped trying. Guess I should start trying to make the leaves for scrap projects.
    Been watching your store-I am in need of some little embellishments like I have purchased before. When you get some time for an order I'd be interested.

  3. I just looked at your tutorial, what a great way to create a scallop border. Thanks for the inspirations :)

  4. Geezy Petes this is gorgeous! AWESOME andrea!
