The Other Thank You

This is the other thank you card that I made for Coach Lisa. I used the Clear Scallop Square die to cut the card base. It's so easy to do. Just take a piece of card stock that measures 4.75" x 11" and score it in the center at 5.5". Fold in half along the score line and crease the fold with a bone folder. Place the folded card stock on the die, lining the folded edge up close to the top of the scallops. You'll want your card stock just a tiny bit below the scallops so that it doesn't cut all the way through your card base. There should be a hinge at the top of your card base after die cutting. You don't want two pieces after die cutting :-). I die cut one extra scallop square to layer over the top on the front of my card base. 
After I had my card base assembled, I die cut a circle and embossed it in my Big Shot, stamped the sentiment, and added a die cut butterfly. This is also a quick card to make :-). Have a wonderful day today!!!!

Very cute, this would made a great Vday card with a few changes. Did you have fun in Chicago?

Very pretty, that's a great idea to add the extra layer to cover the hinged part.

Thanks for sharing,

Thanks for the tip about using another scallop square on top! I love the simplicity of the Cherry Cobbler & white together. TFS!

Very pretty! I love the starkness (is that a word) the vibrant of the colors together - striking! TFS!
