Note to self: Casually drinking a cup of coffee while hovering over the card you happily created and finished four days ago but thought to add on just that one last flourish — welp, that might not turn out well. Yep, that really happened, while writing this post, aarrgh! Thankfully things worked out and I simply cut off the bottom right corner of the card and patched it with extra cardstock. Just a peek behind the scenes folks – yes these things happen :-) Welcome back for the Waltzingmouse Stamps February 2015 Blog Hop as we wrap up the releases for the month. If you haven’t stopped in this week, you can see all the items in the release HERE :-) If you came from Tosha Leyendekker’s blog you are in the right place, at any time you can get your bearings by checking the order on the Waltzingmouse Blog. Now on to my card, this is actually the first card I created with new goodies in hand and it feels a little bit on the CAS side but the inspiration was threading some pennants through the Pretty Circle Die.
My card is 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″. I created two staggered layers on the card base then added a piece of 7″ cardstock that I cut the edges with the Pretty Circle Die. I cut a Pretty Circle which I then cut again with Spellbinders Standard Circles LG creating a frame which I adhered to the strip at the top and bottom. Then I hand cut several pennants and threaded them over the circle and underneath the strip – this created a space in the center for the Hello Word Die. The final embellishment was Spellbinders Architectural Accents, flowers, leaves and pearls.
