A card from guest designer Melissa Craig

Good Morning!  Melissa here with another card to share

I used a great sketch from The Sweet Stop as my jumping off point.  As I stared at that cute sketch, it hit me.... Scor-Envy!  So I pulled out some great card stock from Raisin Boat (Sweet Cheeks) and started my card.  I used the size for an A2 size envelope.  So I cut my card stock 8x8 and then scored according to the markings on the Scor-Envy.  Then I cut a piece of designer paper into triangles and then fit it to the top and bottom pieces of envelope.  I embossed the side panels.  But since this is a card, I needed an inside.

So, stamping a sweet heart border on a white panel, I created the inside of the card.  I left plenty of room for a personal message.

I had so much fun creating this card!!
