One of the teachers at school asked me to make a card for her students to sign for a classmate that has been out sick for awhile. The bottom paper is from American Girl. The top is a border I made and embossed. I also made an envelope and matching sticker. I hope she likes it and gets well soon.

I am forever needing cards for people having new babies or grand babies so I decided I'd make a few to have on hand to send next time. I used a template from Cards by Karlum and brought it into sure Cuts a Lot. I modified it so it cut a folded card that is about 4x5 inches.
For the trim, I cut 1/4 inch strips of paper with one edge having a small scallop. I edged the scalloped edge with color then ran it through my crimper. I figured which way I wanted it to bend on the card and scrunched the pleats to make the curve before gluing it down. I trimmed it after it dried.
The darling little sheep is from SVG Cuts Cuddly Animals. I can't wait to make more using the bunny, duck, giraffe... Well, you get the idea. I just love these cards!
