Supplies Needed: Set of Framelits that gradually increase, embossing folder, brads, and ribbon

This card is much easier than it looks and it still fits in a regular sized envelope! I used my Ovals Framelits for this card but you could use Circles or even any of the label collections too. The Basic Gray base was done with the largest oval and then I skipped the next one down and cut two ovals in the 3rd largest (one for my writing – white and one to telescope up – Calypso Coral). The Coral oval was then embossed with the Beautiful Baroque Embossing folder! I then cut one more oval with the smallest one in the set in Basic Gray. The last one which is stamped and colored in was punched out the Scallop Oval Punch! Now that you have all of your ovals, it is time to assemble them with your brads! Be sure to stamp on your Whisper White one with whatever greeting you wish (always stamp before assembling in case you mess up and need to use the other side, not like that ever happens but just thought I would share the tip. 😉 Adhere that piece onto the center of your large Scallop Oval. Then place the Calypso Coral one on top and punch a hole through all 3 layers on the top middle of the oval about a 1/4″ down. Place a brad in that whole, the ends will come out on the back side of the card. Next you will take your 2 smallest ovals and adhere them together. Open your telescoping piece that you have already added the brad to and then place your small ovals on top (upside down if there is a greeting so that it is centered) Then the final step is to fold a 2″ piece of ribbon over in a loop (for the handle) and punch a hole through the ribbon and small ovals and attach a brad.
