Fun 'n Flair meets Scor-Pal

Good Morning!  Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  I did, it was very relaxing.  I cleaned on Saturday which felt really good.  My home is dust free... for a couple of days.  It's very dusty here, I don't get that.  I guess I'm so used to WV and the humidity keeping the dust down.  I didn't do a lot in the craft corner - a decision I'll regret later.

But for now I have a project to share with you that iced two cupcakes with one bag of frosting.  (I don't like the killing two birds with one stone phrase.)  I needed to create something for Fun 'n Flair and come up with a project for Scor-Pal.  I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer for Scor-Pal - but I am so afraid I'm not going to come up with projects to share that won't deathly pale in comparison to Tami Mayberry and the rest of the team.  I don't want to disappoint Tami or Diana.

So here it goes.  This is what I created....


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.

Where does Fun 'n Flair come in.. well, the sentiment on the front is from It's All About Love sentiments and the heart border is from the just releasing set, Shayla Goes Cupid.

I had so much fun creating this card for both Scor-Pal and Fun 'n Flair.  I hope I didn't violate any rules by combining these companies.  Afterall, they truly compliment each other.  I am also submitting this to All That Scraps Anything Goes challenge.... I hope I'm not too late.
