This Card is a Piece of Cake!

This is a square card that almost measures 5 in. square (4 3/4 x 4 7/8 to be exact) that I made with Hambo Stamps. You might remember a LAD card I made a while ago with this layout and open, but I had to remove it after it was accepted to a magazine. I've been wanting to make another one ever since, and these Hambo stamps just seemed to work perfectly.

The first card that I did had different measurements, as it was a smaller card, but I'll give you the measurements for this one. You can adjust them as needed...

Card base - 4 3/4 x 11, scored at 2 1/2 x 7 3/8.
Left side - 2 3/8 x 4 1/2 (C.Chip layer), 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 (Caramel) - punch half-circle on center of opening side after layered onto base {you might have to do this one layer at a time, depending on the strength of your punch}.
Right side - 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 (C.Chip), 3 3/8 x 4 1/4 (Caramel)

A couple of things...
1. I used the Marvy Mega Circle Punch for both the half circle and the Turq. circle on the right side. The C.Chip and white circles came from my Creative Memories Cutting System, but you could use whatever you have.
2. Adhere the ends of the ribbon under the C.Chip layer on each side, but thread the right side under the popped up circle and over to the left side to tie.

If you have any other questions, just let me know. It's a fun card to make! Let me know if you try it, and link it as a comment! I'd love to see it! Tomorrow should be a LAD card, so see you then!
