PURSES AND PETTICOATS – Sugar Creek Hollow Paper Piercing Challenge

Purses and Petticoats
Piercing Detail -Spellbinders Piercerabilities 5 1/2″ Fancy Scallop Border

I love paper piercing!  So you can imagine how excited I was when I saw that SCH’s challenge was paper piercing.  I call this Vintage Style Card Purses and Petticoats because I went “scallop crazy” and the result reminded me of the crinoline slips we wore when I was a child.  It may be minor arrogance to say so, but the pictures don’t do this card justice.  I really wish I were a better photographer.

About Chana Malkah

I am a "bubbie" (translation: grandmother), clinical supervisor(pediatrics) and an avid cardmaker. I enjoy making stationery sets and giving them to family and friends. This blog is for those who are just starting to explore cardmaking and other papercrafting. I have been away from cardmaking for about five years and was astounded by all the exciting changes in the craft. When I started stamping back in 1998, I only worked with wood mounted rubber stamps, metal stencils, markers and embossing powders and ink. Now there is a whole world out there and I hope we can explore together. In just eleven short months, I have gone from being afraid of posting my work...to being invited to join two design teams and waiting to hear from two more! Pursue your Passion!
