Makeover Monday- Stampin' Up! Howl-o-ween Treat Card and Punch Tip Video

Stampin-up-howloween-treat-card-punch-tipHello and welcome to Makeover Monday with this fun Stampin' Up! Howl-o-ween Treat card as a sample of one of my most popular videos on You Tube; the Scallop Circle with a Twist tip!

This is an easy variation using any of your scallop circle punches to get a starburst effect.  On this card, it is used as a backing for my Vintage Designer Button.

Let's take a look at the how-to is this video from the past.  Can't see it here?  Find it on my You Tube channel HERE.

inklings:

  • Instead of removable adhesive as seen in the video, you can use your SNAIL adhesive and run your finger over it so it's not too tacky.
  • For this sample, I used the 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch (127811).
  • On this card, the front is cut in half at 2 1/8".  The Trick or Treat stamp from the set was cut apart.  Trick and Or are adhered to the top half of the inside of the card.  Treat is adhered to the top edge of the card front.
