Today’s project is a Concertina Card – there are many online tutorials around so I haven’t done one for you here. Now I’ve used the Stampin’ Trimmer to cut, score and then the rotary arm to trim using the small scallop blade




Can you see the small scallop edge on the top? That’s from the Rotary Cutter Arm.

I’ve stamped on Very Vanilla Card and used Modern Medley Designer Series Paper, Blooming With Kindness, Papillion Potpourri and  Million & One Stamp Sets. The inks were Midnight Muse and Primrose Petals with some Pearls for embellishments. The front features the Top Note Die and Midnight Muse Satin Stitched ribbon.

Below my signature I have the clickable links to my online store for all the Stampin’ Trimmer bits and pieces.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.
