Hello Blossom Scallop Circle Card Tutorial!

Wow are these ever fun to make! This is not my original idea but my card design is. I have seen several videos on Scallop Easel cards.

I was playing around the other night and made my scallop too big for what I was trying to make ( the card I showed a few days ago). It had it sitting here for a few days and I had my Hello Blossoms stamp set right near it and thought, oh my gosh, this looks like so much fun for the Scallop Easel Card!
This is the finished look with the easel card open

This is how it looks when it is closed. It is not sitting real flat though as the button below was drying and I did not want it to touch yet. It should touch flat.

Here I got it poofed down a bit

To make, fold a piece of cardstock in half. Run it through the Big Shot using the #113468 Scallop Circle Die, but leave the top 5 or 6 scallops showing so they do not cut through the paper.  This will make up the top part of the card.

Then cut out a plain scallop circle with our 113468 Scallop Circle Die. This will be your base.  

Score the back part of the folded scallops at about 7 scallops down.  Adhere to the plain single scallop.

I used a solid Whisper White circle on the front of the card.  I used our # 121811
3 1/2 " Circle die. I decorated it with the Hello Blossom Stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalog. I used our Marvelous Markers to color and stamp with. I then used Crystal Effects to stick the buttons on top of the flowers. The buttons are the Subtles Designer Buttons.

This is kind of a side view. The flowers with the buttons are the top of the card. The stamp was too cute to cover up with the word, "hello" on it so I used my Big Shot and our #113469 Scallop Circle #2 to make the inside Scallop a bit smaller. 

A better side view:

I colored it with the Markers. Now you can see the cute little hello!! I added a little button with my Crystal Effects!  Just tied a bit of linen thread through it first.

Here you go, the finished product!

These are just so easy and so much fun to make! I am on a kick with these!
