Scallop circle cards

Good afternoon! I hope you all had a great weekend! I finally put in my new catalog order!! Woohoo! I can't wait! I ordered Thoughts & Prayers, Fifth Avenue Floral, Cheers to you and a few accessories. None of the SAB sets are really my style so I got the ribbon bundle and the DSP. I can't wait! I know I already said that, but it seems like it's been so long since I've ordered some SU goodies! I'm excited!

The other day I was looking at my nestabilities thinking how cute a card would be made from one that opened somehow. So that's what I did. On this one the white Wild Wasabi piece under the white lifts up.
I just punched though all the layers except for the scalloped one twice and ran the ribbon though that. Then I just scored to make it open. I used a circle needle point plastic canvas thingie to do the piercing. I'm so glad I can pierce circles now! Free hand wasn't even an option, lol. I've tried rolleyes.

-Stamps-Tart & Tangy, Much Appreciated
-Paper-Whisper White, YoYo Yellow and Wild Wasabi
-Ink- YoYo Yellow, Only Orange and Wild Wasabi
-Accessories-Circle cutter, Circle Nestabilities, Wild Wasabi ribbon, paper piercer and needle point canvas

I made this one for hubby. The Pink Pirouette piece lifts up, and there is another Pink Pirouette circle underneath with the sentiment.

-Paper-Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Close to Cocoa
-Ink- Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa
-Accessories-Circle cutter, Circle Nestabilities, Chocolate Chip twill ribbon, white signo gel pen, paper piercer and needle point canvas
