Lydia shows you how to make a cheery card with a "happy" greeting. This card features small flowers in bright colors and a pretty rhinestone accent. With this card, you will learn how to use a scallop punch (and Lydia shows you a great one) and a circular cutting system to create different elements.

For this lesson, you will need: orange & white solid cardstock and pink & green patterned cardstock, a scalloped border punch, a 3-flower punch, 'happy' greeting stamp, flower stamp, glue dots, a circular cutting system, a piercing tool, a white gel pen, 2 coordinating colored inks, black ink, inline adhesive, and a rhinestone.
