Front of card

Inside view

Open view
I recently made some purchases - the items have pretty much been gathering dust until I figure out a way to use them.  Can any one relate?  I bought some ready made card bases for what I think is called a tri fold spinner card.  I also bought (from the Create and Craft TV show) a very large kit of Kanban items.  They are all nice but the items often do not fit a layout or color scheme I planned to use.  So when I saw the challenge at Our Daily Bread I thought this is the time to see what I can do.  I would really appreciate any hints, suggestions or examples you might have.  For me, the most difficult aspect is to deal with the circle that is pre-cut - or, more accurately, half cut.  It seems that one must leave the scallop portion as a white bg
Here, I used a piece of eggplant shimmery cs (dry embossed with Textiles) cut to fit the front - using a circle die for the opening.  Then I stamped the ODB sentiment, and layered it on a slightly larger piece of eggplant.  I added a strip from the Kanban kit, and a Cheery Lynn die cut bird INSIDE:  I used a ready made floral section (Kanban) for the right side - again, with a piece of eggplant cs for the mat.  Another Kanban piece covers the inside of the pre-cut circle, and pieces from a Joanna Sheen die complete the inside design.  I left a bit at the bottom for a hand written message and/or signature.
