Shimmery Scallop Birthday Card

Here's the final March card class project. It's a cute shaped card made by using a scalloped circle nestie, some fabulous shimmer paper and a couple of circle punches. I saw the card shape design idea online and thought it was so clever and then forgot to bookmark the link so I could credit the original creator. My apologies.
So, how do you make this card? First, you fold the sugar card base in half and cut the card base by overlapping the die on the fold. To better explain since I didn't think to take a picture (oops!), put about four scallops of your die over the top of your fold so that there is a flat edge on the top of your card. You can see on the photo below how that looks - scalloped all except for the top flat edge. Then, cut the full scalloped circle out of the shimmer paper and pop it on top! This will make it easy for the card to open and close but will also give the appearance of being a full scalloped circle card. Just remember to look at the pattern on your background paper so you have it going vertically (don't ask me if I learned that the hard way- lol!).
I love the saying on the inside. It's from Birthday Greetings. The birthday hat is from Itty Bitty Birthday colored with the bubblegum tombow marker and the popped up sentiment is from Cupcake Companion stamped in bubblegum ink. The shimmer paper is bubblegum damask cardstock and the ribbon is the bubblegum satin ribbon tied with the fabulous A Muse Studio Bowmaker tool. :)

I hope you've enjoyed seeing the March card class projects. All products used were A Muse Studio and can be purchased online safely and securely at (consultant #1379). And, the new spotlight specials have been posted for April on the second page of my blog. Have fun looking at the fabulous ideas as well as the stamps and paper on special!

Have a wonderfully creative day!

Very pretty pink DP on the front of this card, I would hate to cover it up too much :) You did a great job too. I love the sentiment on the inside. My hubby has this on a t-shirt from our son and his gf this past Christmas. He loves it and wears it often. LOL

Great minds think alike - well okay almost alike - I just made an easel card using the scallop circles - love the shimmer papers and the pink is one of my favorites - what a perfect card for a birthday. Great job.
