I designed this card for my next SU Hostess Club Party make and take.
I cut my main W White CS 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4". I then trimmed the card front to 2 7/8" width.
I used my Sizzix Scallop Squares Duo
die to cut out a Raspberry Ripple 3" x 3" Square. Because my sentiment was not square, but 2" x 2 3/4" I just cut the scallop square down the middle and overlapped and glued each piece to make a perfect fit for the sentiment. My ribbon covers the tiny bit of cut line that you can see.
The butterflies were for a fun embellishment using my Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches.
This CAS card is a fun example of several different techniques and embellishments.
My card qualifies for TLC422 Monochromatic Madness perfect challenge for March Madness, which my DH and I watch faithfully :-)
Enjoy and Happy Stamping...

Great card, Nancy! Your girls will love it! Very creative solution to your sizing issue -- nobody would know it wasn't the perfect size if you didn't tell them. :) The sentiment is empowering and the butterflies oh-so-nice.

Wonderful card--so much going on with it while still remaining CAS. Love your clever solution to hiding the cut marks on your scalloped square--and by your being undaunted when it didn't fit at first: a great example IRL of the sentiment!
