Scallop edged Circle

I made this thank you card for Keryn and Tanya for organizing the unconventional swaps. 
I'm so looking forward to all the swaps arriving next week.
I found this on internet somewhere and didn't bookmark it, so I don't know who to give the credit to.
A big thank you if it was you.
This is a very easy edge to do around a circle or oval.

First of all cut your circle using your Circle Scissor Plus. I cut my at 8cm across.
Stamp your image.
Cut 3cm strip of Card Stock (A4), Use Eyelet Border or Scallop Edge Punch all the way across the strip.
Then cut from bottom edge to about 2mm from top at the valley.
Put Snail all round the back of the circle and adhere Eyelet Edge strip ajusting as you go to get the look you are after. I started at the back and turn it over and worked from the front.
When you have completed the circle trim off remaining card and mount on to card
 Back view of completed pendant.
