I love the new TAC set called "Floral Favorites"! I was on a roll with it right before Valentine's Day and used it over and over again. I meant to post these cards before Valentine's but just didn't get around to it so I hope that you don't mind seeing them a little late! You could use these ideas to make wedding cards or engagement cards too.

The card below is just another version of the one I posted above and basically uses the same supplies.
And last is one more using the Floral Favorites heart. This one is called a kickstand card because it "stands" up using the scalloped circle punches. Another fun thing about this card is how the white scalloped border at the bottom of the card was made. I'll tell you about that below!!

Here's what the card looks like when you open it up. See the white scalloped border, now at the top of the photo? This was made using the NEW TAC cornder rounder!! See below for a tutorial on how to make your very own!
1. This is how the corner rounder looks when you get it.2. It has removable tabs on each side and you'll need to take those off in order to make your border. 3. Line your punch up with the edge of your paper. Make sure that the bottom "circle" part of the punch is lined up with the bottom of the paper.
4. Here's what your cardstock should look like after the first punch. (And, this will probably take some practice.)
5. Line up your punch again. Since your scallop kind of looks like a smiley face now, you'll want to make sure that when you line the punch up, you line it up with the top corner of the smiley from the last punch that you made. They will overlap.
6. Here's what the next punch will look like when it is finished.
7. Continue to do this until you have completed the section you want to be scalloped. Here is a final product.
Once you play around with it for a while, it does get a lot easier! And, this is such a great way to add another little decorative element to your card or scrapbook page!!
