I’m here today with a super FUN Totally Stampalicious challenge.  This week’s challenge is a color combo.  We want you to use Red and White in honor of July 1st - Canada Day!  I couldn’t resist using the newly released Daisy Scarlette stamp set from the Totally Stampalicious Bugaboo line.  Doesn’t she look just fabulous in RED?  Scarlette in Red….well it’s just perfect!
This card measures 5 x 5.  The scalloped square base of this card was made using the Stampin Up Scallop Edge Punch.  I used the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers (SCS) to create the scalloped square.  You can find the tutorial HEREGetting the corners right was a little tricky.  It took me a few tries to get a square I liked.  It's still not perfect but it's good!  HINT:  The little flowers in the corners do a great job of covering up the less than perfect corner scallops!

Once I made the base I needed to make it stand on it’s own.  I’ve never made an easel card before so this seemed like a good opportunity to try it.  I found the Easel Card Tutorial on SCS as well.  The easel was really easy to make.  You can find that tutorial HERE.

Here's a side view of my card:

Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian Friends and Bloggers!  I hope you can play along with our Red & White challenge this week!
