Mini Scallop Card

I don't feel well today. I am still in my pajamas and I have spent the entire day just laying around. But I did manage to stamp this little mini card. It is going to be one of the make-and-takes at my workshop tomorrow morning.

I used a tutorial by Andrea at Sunny Stampin' for this one. She used hers for a candy treat and I used mine more like a pocket card. It would also fit a gift card perfectly! And it is soooo easy to make. You just take a carousel note and score it at 1 1/2 on three of the four sides. You use scissors to cut off the 2 bottom corners and then fold it on the score lines. To get it to stay closed- wrap a belly band of DSP around it. My DSP is 1 x 7 and I adhered it with snail. I decorated it with Afternoon Tea DSP, the butterfly from the Essence of Love set and a few punches. It still needed a little something....so I used a glue dot to adhere a small flower and pearl from the Pretties kit. Done!

Today our high was in the 60's!!!! It was awesome. That's 50 degrees cooler than it was last weekend. Oh how I love to be able to open the windows and feel a cool breeze coming in!

BTW: I put all my sale-a-bration stamp sets up for sale in my ebay store. They are selling FAST so if you want any be sure to check it out ASAP. The link in on the left side of my blog. I will be mosting more retired stamps soon.
