Today's card was another assignment for my Friend to Friend swap. This one was to be made using items we would normally hoard. Well, I have not used my Carousel Notes yet, and I like to hang on to my bling - like the Clear Rhinestone brads. So, I used my handy dandy new Circle Scissors Plus and Glass Mat to cut some circles to mount on the Carousel note card. I added a circle "card" that I cut out with my Circle Scissors Plus and adhered to the back of the card so that it would "open" instead of being a post card-style card. I also used my never-before used Pick a Petal Classy Brass Template to do the circle shaped paper piercing (yes...more!! he he LOL) and the dry embossing of the circles in each scallop.
Of course I had to pull out my current favorite set, Friends 24-7. I used my blender pen to put Baja Breeze ink only on the flowers on the stamp and my Old Olive SU! marker to ink the stems and leaves. I stamped it and then water-colored the image with the Baja Breeze and Old Olive ink and a blender pen with both. I like this effect of an image with no black or single-colored outline. Rather, the flowers are one color with a lighter shade filling them and the same for the leaves/stems.
It was a fun card to make and I hope you (and Carmen of course!) like it!!!
