Here is the Card, with both sides opened!

100_7131

Love how this turned out! Except for the spot on lower left!

I learned that you must not use Alcohol Markers on the cover…it bleeds through!

Mind you, that is only the front rock colored!

I left it that way to show the Ladies what NOT to do!

I will punch out a little flower and adhere to that spot to cover it up!

 

There are many components to this card!

Lots of die-cutting for this card!

For one or two cards…not bad, but for 12! It was a lot of die-cutting!

Layering Circles Dies- a circle and scallop circle, nested, to make the 8 scallop frames!

Stitched Rectangle Dies- cut out a square from the largest rectangle, cut off

.50″ from each long side of that square, to make your scallop edge for front card flap

 

TO ASSEMBLE:

The angled front flap is made from 4.5″ x 5.25″ score on the short side @ .50″

from the top edge of the unscored side, measure in 2″ and make a small pencil mark

do the same on the opposite bottom side.

On the long side (5.50″) make a pencil mark @ 2.75″

Lay the card on your paper-cutter, using the 2″ pencil mark and the 2.75″ pencil mark.

Line them up with the cutter and cut off the corner piece. (a diagonal cut)

Do the same with the other side.

You will have your angled flap, for the card front.

Run a piece of Tear & Tape down the scored side of that angled flap piece

to adhere to the card.

Face the Card Base backwards to flap piece. (the flap will be adhered to the back)

The Card base is now all together.

Adhere the scalloped pieces made from the Stitched Scallop Rectangle,

(the 2 pieces cut off the rectangle) to the underside of the front flap,

snip to fit, off those ends.

Time to cut the circle holes:

On the front, flap piece place the circle die (far enough from the angle cut, pointed edge,

you will be cutting the scallop frame to go around the opening!) Run through the

Big Shot/Cuttlebug, or what ever machine you use.

Adhere the DSP to the second page and then close the card with flap over the DSP,

using a smaller circle die, place into the flap circle, with a pencil,

draw a circle on the  DSP.

Run through the Big Shot to cut out that circle piece!

Close the card, with the DSP side, using the same smaller circle die,

place into the last cut circle hole, with a pencil make a circle. onto the

Whisper White piece now. Open up the Card to expose only the Whisper White.

Stamp your bunny, centered, into the penciled circle. Erase the pencil circle mark.

Stamp your daffodils and rocks onto the card. Stamp the inside sentiment.

Color the daffodils and rocks on the card front with the Stampin’ Wright Markers.

Color the inside daffodils and rocks with the Stampin’ Blends.

Run the Whisper White piece, with the 2 Layering Dies to make scallop Frames (8)

Adhere the Whisper White, scallop frame circles, to die-cut holes, to frame. et Voila’ !
