You make me smile

This is for the little boys at the Cards 4 Hospitalized Children's Charity. 
I made a easel shaped card base using a scalloped square from the Silhouette store.  I opened the file then made a copy of the scalloped square and set it off to the right.  That piece is the top layer of the easel card.  To make the card base, I selected the original scalloped square, did mirror above, overlapped the edges slightly then aligned on the right side and merged the 2 together.  Cut out the card base and the extra piece that was set off to the right.  Fold the top piece on card base in half to form the upside down v of the easel shape.  See top photo.  Then glue the full size scalloped rectangle on the folded half.  Make sure to apply glue only on the front half.  Also used a fun print and cut turtle from the Silhouette store and added the saying.  Created a offset and cut out the white and turquoise blue pieces.  Also cut out two wave borders and some sea shells.
