Scallop Circle Easel Card
I don't have much time to post, because I'm trying to get organized for my Team Stamp Night tonight, but I thought I'd sneak on to show you this fun card... It was inspired by a card sketch challenge (posted by Susie) this week on Stampin' Connection. She wanted us to create a circular card, and I remembered seeing an easel card and thought it would work perfectly!
I created a Scallop Circle Easel card fairly simply... I folded a piece of card stock (I believe it was 4 3/4" x 9 1/2") in half, then lined up the fold on my Scallop Circle die so that 4 scallops were showing (not being cut through). I folded one side of the resulting 'card' in half again, and cut a full Scallop Cricle to attach to the bottom half of the folded Scallop Circle (hopefully you can tell in the photo how I did this). The Clear Circle die was perfect for cutting my patterned paper circle to fit inside, and I added some crinkled Taffeta Ribbon (carefully heated with my Heat Tool) and a sentiment (embossed the Four Frames image, then stamped inside with Pear Pizazz ink and the Clearly For You image and the sentiment from Fabulous Phrases) to finish off the card.
