Artiste Scalloped Circle Card

Ever since I got Make The Cut to use with my Cricut Expression, it's been my go-to software program to do die cuts.

Today, Joy Tracy posted a video on her blog Obsessed With Scrapbooking featuring the scalloped circle card on the Close To My Heart Artiste cartridge.  I had never used any of the shaped cards from that cartridge and was inspired by hers to give it a try.  Joy did use her Cricut and their software for her card.

I traced the image in MTC and cut it on my Cameo using Joy's dimensions.  A 2 1/4" circle fits perfectly inside the scalloped circle.

The butterfly was stamped using Ladybug Red Memento Ink and a stamp from Stampin' Up that coordinates with their Elegant Butterfly punch.

The sentiment is from a stamp set I've had for some time.  I'm not certain which company it's made by.

Joy cut her card at 5 1/4" so it's slightly smaller than an A2.

The scalloped edges link together to form a closure.

The cream colored insertion will give plenty of space to jot a note.  I cut a narrow strip of cardstock to trim the lower edge.
