Just being Crafty. So I don't get Crabby...LOL!

Looking for MY GIVE AWAY ... Click HERE .... for more information.

Here's a card I put together while I was playing with 
products and learning other techniques for future classes, 
crops, and workshops.
 (Yes, I  do need to perfect some things before I just 
throw a workshop or class at you.)
Hope you like..It is pretty simple stuff.
As usual I am using up scraps.
Wht.cardstock = 10" x 5" (folded 5x5)
Holiday Red Square 3.25" x 2.75"
I did score and sand the red card stock before cutting. 
(scored every 1/2")
Sky Blue Circle is created from the CTMH 2" scallop punch.
I used my new stamp set from the Scroll WOG KIT
(can not order this stamp set separately)
Used Sky Blue Ink Pad
Used my CTMH - A Typeface stamp set
Used Black Ink pad
Used Creme' Brulee` Bakers Twine around the scallop circle, 
wrapped it twice then tied bow.
Stamped my image to one side top of card base and then 
a partial of same stamp on bottom edge same side.
Placed three round Sparkles on the center of 3 flowers.
Stamped the Sky Blue Scallop with the sentiment 
in Blk. Ink before placing Square on wht. card base, I used 
the Scallop circle to take a bite off the edge of 
the base and then off the red card stock . 
Inked the wht. bite off in sky blue, edge the Holiday Red 
layer piece in Sky Blue on all edges. Placed the Holiday Red 
distressed square so that one of the scallops matched only 
one of the card base scallops to the right 
and kept it straight so that it looks like a double bite. 
  Used small amount of Liquid Glass to adhere the ribbon in place.
Then adhered the circle to the Holiday Red Square overlapping slightly onto Wht. card base.
Stamping the last sentiment just above the circle scallop. 
Like I said, very easy.
ENVELOPE WAS made to fit the Card by using the Martha Stewart Score Board. 
(had to work at that since I do not make cards often..equals have not made envelops either.)
before adhering the closed sides of card. I scored in varies areas straight lines on the flaps only, then slightly sanded and used the 2' Scallop Punch to take a small edge off the top flap. to help that stand out. I inked the edge of the top flap only. Then I adhered the three sides. Wa La...Decorative Envelope.
Front area left plain so you can stamp address and 
return address on it.
Been a long few days. I am going to take a long nap.
Thank you for stopping by. 
Let me know what you think of this nifty card.
