Stampin up vintage labels sale-a-bration I finally got a chance to learn how to create squares and rectangles with Stampin' Up's new Scallop Trim Border Punch (Sale-A-Bration free gift) and Scallop Trim Corner Punch (Click for Occasions Mini Catalog).  I tried to combine the two on my own and managed to fill my waste basket with card stock rapidly 🙂

This tutorial created by fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Gretchen Barron saved the day (and my card stock supply).  Thank you, Gretchen, for making a task I worried was going to be daunting, easy and fun!  I followed the directions to make the Real Red rectangle with the scallop trim border for today's card.  Happy Dance!
