You are not going to believe this, but this card was super easy to make because I cheated.

I used the Magic Iris Die to create the interactive element of the card. You can see how here:

And here is another more in depth tutorial on how to put these types of cards together:

How did I cheat? I stamped the leaves from A Bug Deal Stamp Set on different shades of green cardstock (36 leaves were used to fill the outside ring of the Iris) and ran it through my Scan-n- Cut. I do not have the coordinating die for this stamp set, so I used my electronic cutter. The only thing I colored were the cute little critters.

The entire card came together in about 30 minutes! I still use my thin cut dies, but I must confess that with the Scan-n-Cut they are no longer a need. It is the best addition to my craft room I have made this decade!

Until next time ~ Happy Crafting!
