From Courtney's Closet Challenge #39-Hey

HEY-THANKS! You all know how much I love Snoopy. Well, here he is, back to play in From Courtney's Closet Challenge #39! Now-- I didn't have a scottie dog stamp...but Snoopy is my main "Dawg"! The sketch is from Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #66.

Inside is finished with a strip of plaid cardstock as well as an thin piece of pierced real red cardstock. I stamped THANKS on the inside.



I made this look with my scalloped nestie. I used a tip that Allison at Stampin When I Can showed a while back. I fell in love with the pinked edge nesties, but golly I have to pick carefully what I buy. Allison showed this tip that solved my dilemma. I got the pinked look by cutting a classic scalloped nestie circle. I then popped it out of the nestie, rotated just a wee bit, (not even 1/4 of an inch) and taped it in place to keep it from moving. I ran it through my big shot again and came out with this fun edge! Viola...my pinked edge! I wish I could find Allison's posting to show you...maybe she will read this and show me the way to her link!

ETA: HERE is the link to make your own "pinked" edge! Thanks Allison!

I LOVE your suggestions on how to make the pinked edge with the scallop nestie. Wonderful and perfect for my budget as well. I also like the uneven pink that it gives.
