Fifth Challenge

For this challenge, I want you to make a clam shell card. In case you don't know what I'm talking about, all you have to do is cut cardstock for a card base and fold it over or grab a notecard as you normally would. Then take a circle punch, circle nesties, coluzzle, whatever, and place it over your folded cardstock so that the cutting implement is going over the folded edge a bit. Then just cut through the double layers of cardstock. The front and back of your card will still be attached at the top at the point where your cutting tool went over the edge. Clear as mud??

I personally wish I hadn't put the nestie so far over the edge, as I would have liked maybe one more scallop intact on each side, but oh well. And I swear, the ribbon matches the plum pudding cardstock on the card base, though you wouldn't know it by looking at the picture!
