I really struggled to create this card and I don't know why. I drew several sketches before I settled on this arrangement and after my first cuts I adjusted the size of the front and inside scalloped cuts.

So the scallops on the square did not get too out of proportion when making the squares the size I needed them, I used the slice and weld features in Cricut® Design Space. I have a screenshot on a previous blog post to show this with an image because I am not sure my words explain this well. I lightly inked the edges of the scallops on the frame with Sorbet ink.
