I cut this scalloped card base. The base measures 4 1/4" and is welded on my Gypsy to form the card base. The scalloped circle I used is from Preserves, but you can use any scalloped circle you like. I always cut an extra card front to cover the folded edge of the card base. The circles measure as follows:
brown : 3 1/2" - also from Preserves
pink polka-dots : 3 1/4" - also from Preserves
This is the butterfly from Everyday Pop-up Cards. It's cut at 2". I just had to accent the body with some self stick flat back pearls. Only the body is adhered to the card base.
I embossed the "Happy Birthday" from Scrappy Moms Stamps using white embossing powder. Adding some white gel pen stitches really brings the card all together. I added more pearls to each scallop on the card base.
The adorable branch is from Cindy Loo cut at 3 1/2" (the leaves are from the same cut). I inked the edges of the leaves and attached them with pop dots.
The dimension on this card is wonderful, with the leaves up on pop dots and the butterfly's wings popping off the card. Because I sized the circle card to 4 1/4" it will still fit into an A2 sized envelope.... no extra postage required.
