I Have Happy Feet

Have  you ever made a flap card?  They are very simple yet give you a different look in a card.  I hope you will want to make one after looking at how easy they are to make.   This is my flap card.
I started in Cricut Craft Room, welded a 4" scallop circle from the Bloom Lite Cartridge to a 4X9 rectangle from the George cartridge.  The total length of the scallop and rectangle should be 4X11.  I then chose a 4" scalloped oval frame from the Ashlyn cartridge.  I used the hide contour feature and hid the inside line so it would cut a solid scalloped ovalThis can also be done in Design Studio and on the Gypsy.

This is how it looks when cut.  I chose Basic Grey Euphoria for my background paper.
 Turn 11" card base over.  Score at 4 1/4" and again at 8 1/2".  Fold on scored lines.  
Decorate the scalloped oval with anything you like. I chose this darling little image and colored her with Promarkers. She is another free digi offered in the CDAC Progressive Challenge.  Check it out.
This is the inside of the card.  The embellishments are from Basic Grey Euphoria.  The scalloped circle is from the Bloom cartridge.

Attach decorated scalloped oval to the flap. 

I hope you will try this little card.  I would love to see what you make.  Thanks for your visits and comments.  God Bless You!!! Peggy
