Garden Whimsy "Doughnut"

When making the quilt cards at the workshop, one of the final steps was to trim the strips of designer paper that were hanging off the edge of the card stock. One of my customers left her "snippets" of designer paper on the table, so I used them on this card! They look like ribbon, huh?
This card is 4" x 3-3/4". I began by placing the designer paper strips to the card. After the Really Rust layer was added, I punched a 1-3/8" through both layers--the Really Rust and the Soft Sky. The ladybug (Garden Whimsy) was stamped with Pumpkin Patch Spectrum ink onto Whisper White card stock and then punched with a 1" circle punch. This circle was layered onto an Old Olive 1-1/4" circle, which was adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to the inside of the card so that it would peep through the "doughnut" hole. Doughnut cards are quick and easy to make! How do you like this card, Karin?????

So, which scissors did you use to make the scallop/wave edge? Are these the old SU ones or Fiskars? Cute card BTW!

Cassy, the scissors I used are the retired SU scallop edge scissors. ;-)
