I also used my Scor Bug to create a pierced outline around the mat, as well as just free-handing some curved pierced lines all over it to mimic the tooled design on the boots. (I had a moment of Uh-oh, I don't know this is going to look!) but I think it turned out really nice, yay! (whew!) I used the Labels One die and Fancy Corner punches, leaving them ivory for contrast and a two tone effect(labels One die was sponged a tiny bit with the stencil in place to make the outline pop. Base and oval frame are Gina K Pure Luxury Chocolate Kiss.
So how do you like the fancy edge on that brown frame? You can make it with the Scalloped Oval Nestabilites. Cut out a scalloped oval like you normally would (I also cut out a smaller classic oval to make the window) and then offset the scalloped die so it will cut into the middle of each hump, it gives you this super fancy edge when you cut it again! Because the oval is not symmetrical in the way a circle is when you offset it like this you get these small and large humps, but if you do it with a die like a circle, you can fake the "Pinking Circles" set of Nestabilities dies, see below.
Here I'm using the petite scalloped circle die. I've already cut my red paper and rotated it just slightly so I see a little "arrowhead" pointing inward between each hump.
After you run it back through, the little piece will fall out and you have a perfectly "pinked" edge! You can get this effect with the regular scalloped dies as well, you'll just have bigger points. Although I have MOST of the Nestabilities sets, the pinking edge is not a set I ever bought, although it really looks cools with certain images, so this way, I don't have to buy them! (and you don't either! that's $25 you save! ) :)
Here's to faking it!
