Spring Birthday Scene Card

Good morning - Adrienne from Eagle Canyon Arts.  It's always a pleasure to be a part of Sheila's talented Sassy Lady design team.  Thank you, Sheila.

Happy Spring!  Here is a bright card made with the Cricut and CTMH Artfully Sent Cartridge.  This card is a variation on the folding card made on p. 33.  The card is 5" x 7".

Other Close To My Heart supplies used include:

Confetti Wishes Paper and Complements (retired - use Zoe - X9197B, Kaleidoscope - X7202B or  Calypso (available in May)
Daisy White Cardstock (1385)
Inks - Thistle (Z2640), Buttercup (retired - use Honey - Z2162)
Enamel and Glitter Duos - Blue Dots (Z3122)
Artfully Sent "Just To Say" Stamp (D1629)

Other Supplies:

ek Corner Scallop Tool

For the main card, cut one "whole" card as directed (at 7") and one "front half" (the one with the scallop design) in contrasting paper.  If you are unsure about how to place your paper to get that half a card right, go ahead and cut the whole thing, slice off the back and use it later.  Glue the 2 pieces together, matching the design.  Instead of folding the card OUTward, fold it INward and glue it down.

Cut the corresponding sentiment sheet (at 7").  I used the corner scallop to add pizazz.  Some stick on compliments and the edge stamping completed the inside.  The blue dots are on the front of the card at the center of each scallop.

Such a fun card to make - very versatile and a great look that will change with the different papers and embellishments used.  Thanks for joining me!
