Happy Tuesday everybody and welcome back for another Timeless Tuesday. I am so glad you are here! Our hostess this week is the wonderfully talented Judy and she has a great challenge for us this week...Going in Circles! Create a circle card (FTTC227). How fun is that?! You can read all the details here.
here. I have made one of these before but it has been a while....they are a lot of fun to make! I also decided to make this a baby card....I used the Hello Baby stamp set AND also another stamp set....do you recognize it?
On the little tag there are some pennants from the S'more Fun stamp set! I stamped off once before stamping them in Memento Espresso Truffle ink onto my sentiment tag. The onesie is also stamped in Espresso Truffle ink. My sentiment is stamped in MementoTuxedo Black ink. I used my copics to color in the onesie and pennants and an Atyou Spica clear pen to give it a little sparkle on the pennants and the snaps on the onesie. Here is a little closer look, although I don't think the sparkle is really showing up on the pictures....
The card base was made with Spellbinders' Picot Edge Circles and Classic Circles Large Nestabilities. The sentiment tag was made with Spellbinders Label Twenty-Two and sponged with a little Ranger Antique Linen Distress ink. I did some random stitching on the machine for a little interest on the borders. My blue gingham paper is from the last piece I have of it. It is from Making Memories and I am not sure they make it anymore....I have had this for quite a while (I tend to hoard some of my most favorite papers...lol) but I had to use it on this card! The other patterned paper is from Carta Bella's Traditions 6x6 paper pad and was left over from the Anniversary Card I did a couple of weeks ago. The onesie and sentiment tag were stamped on Flourishes' Classic Ivory card stock. The neat thing about this card is the way it opens..it kind of twists open and then props up like an easel...hence the name!
For the inside, I added the sweet little sentiment from the baby set, some ribbon, buttons and a star with a bit more of the gingham paper cut as a banner. The front of the card props on the ribbon and button strip so it could be displayed opened like this. As you can see, there is minimal coloring here and really, you wouldn't even have to color it all, maybe just a little sponging for those who are not huge fans of coloring. The set is adorable and very versatile!
Just look at those cute little booties....soooo precious!
So, hopefully now you are getting inspired to make your own circle card...but don't stop here!
