Circle cards make me happy. I don’t know why; maybe it’s because they are different, like me. And the only thing better than a round card is a round card with shiny stuff on it. I skipped that part of the equation today, but only because there was an awful lot going on with the card as it was.
All the papers used in this card came from Club Scrap’s “Garden Shed” release. The colors are beautiful and the cardstock is thick and luscious.
After assembling the base layers, I added a stitched white line with my gel pen and used an art air tool to spritz a sandy color onto the paper. I added the ribbon on created a bow, then slipped in a wooden flower element from my stash that I’d picked up from an after-season markdown table. I used the white gel pen to outline the lighter section of the flowers to make them stand out more. Finally, I embossed the sentiment and slipped it in behind the wooden flowers.
This is so gorgeous, I’m going to hang on to it until I find just the right person to give it to. In the meanwhile, I can look at it in my craft room and feel even more happy.
