Scallop-Shaped Card with Butterflies from Cricut Art Philosophy

I made this card almost completely with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. It was for my swap card for our team meeting. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures before the meeting so I took these mediocre photos at the last minute after swapping.

We were to use the Florentine paper pack, so I used a couple of the patterned papers with twilight and colonial white cardstock. I stamped the larger butterfly with a background stamp from Universal Backgrounds in cocoa ink. (You seriously need this set...I use it ALL the time.) A little bronze glitz glitter gel gave this butterfly a sparkly finishing touch.

Even the card base was cut on the Cricut. But here's a secret...I didn't use the scallop-shaped base. I used a regular circle card base. Then I cut out the scallop shape to adhere to the front of the circle card. I do this because when you cut out a shaped card on the Cricut, one of the sides is just straight. This way the scallop goes all the way around. (I learned this trick from Stephanie Baldwin, who, by the way, inspired this card.)

To purchase the Art Philosophy collection (or any of the other supplies I used), shop on my CTMH website.
