Alota Supplies

Can you believe it's the last few days of March? Well, this is the last of the challenges that Frances has provided for us this month. Thanks Frances!! Thank you too for being such a good sport when we changed up last weeks challenge...*grin*

For this week, we were all sent a variety of images from Alota Rubber Stamps. Thanks Helene.

I chose to use this sweet little egg image called Egg with Flowers (Alota Rubber Stamps). The card is pretty straight forward, so I won't go into many details. I will tell you how to make the corners though. All I did was take one of the smaller Square Nestabilities, placed it in the center of a larger Scalloped Square Nestability, and ran it through my cuttlebug together. I then cut the square in half. Easy as pie.

One more hint....when adding glitter to an image, run an *embossing buddy*...(that's the Stampin' Up! name, I don't know what else it's called. All I know is that it eliminates static cling)...anyway, run it over the image, then add your glue and glitter. The glitter will only cling to the glue and not the paper.

Ingenious way to create scalloped photo corners! I adore your DP with the teeny tiny flowers and your three egg images are precious as is the lattice work.
