Good morning blog friends! I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer so far. We have been having very HOT and humid temps around here for the past 2 weeks, and I am just about melting in this heat, lol! Today here in the US of A we are celebrating Independence Day, so a lot of us have the day off from work. Usually we would be barbecuing and drinking frothy iced drinks to keep cool, but my kids are away at the grandparent's house for a couple of weeks and it's just me and Jimmy. Maybe we'll just do the frothy iced drinks part and get some take out!
I wanted to try something new with my card today, inspired by a card I saw in the Silhouette store. The Silhouette Store one made a very small card, and I wanted it a little larger so I adapted the idea for this A4 sized card. It turned out to be a lot more complicated than I anticipated, but I was determined to get it done, lol!
Basically it's 4 layers of different colored cardstock, each with a scalloped circle die cut out of it in graduated sizes. Getting the scalloped circles centered exactly right so that they lined up perfectly wasn't as easy as I thought it would be! But oh wow, I LOVE this effect. If I could find an easier way to do this, I might do it more often.
I used one of the sweet little bears from the new 'Posy Trio' set, colored in Copics, right in the center of the window.
I also stamped the top most layer of cardstock with the 'Roses Background' clear stamp in white ink and added a little tag from 'Sentiment Tags' to the bow.
Well, that's all for today, thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
