Card shown closed.

Hint:  Do Not stamp your greeting until after you adhere your Scallop Circles together to make the card....then put your Circles of DSP and WW on...otherwise your greeting may be turned the wrong way!

Score your front Scallop Circle Die Cut in the middle of the 6th scallop from the top fold.  Use your new Simply Score Scoring Tool for best results.
Adhere your 3rd Scallop Circle Die Cut to the top-half of your now-scored scallop circle.  Remember to only put Snail on that top half.

Make a brad bow and attach it to the inside of your card.

You are done!

Here is another color combo that I made just for fun.
