Scallop Circle Assembly

5.  Using Boho Blossoms punch, punch largest flower from Soft Suede and small flower from Pear Pizzazz.  (Note:  It will be easier if you poke a hole in the paper first, then center the hold inside the flower, then punch the flower.)  Put the brad through these flowers, then through the DSP Scallop Circle.  Put Dimensionals on the back of the DSP Scallop Circle and attach to Always Artichoke Scallop Circle.
6.  Place Dimensionals on the back of the Always Artichoke Scallop Circle, leaving the backings on.  Decide where to place it on your card front.  Tie Seam Binding Ribbon around card front:  place small piece of Crochet Trim after first part of knot, then complete knot and trim ribbon edges.  Use mini glue dots if necessary to hold the ribbons in place.
