Here are the rest of the materials that were used:
- Brown cardstock
- Transparent gold cardstock
- Elmer's glue pen
- 3/8 in. adhesive dots
- Glitter flower embellishments
- 1 inch circle punch
- Transparent shipping label
- Decorative scissors
I created the circle card with the turquoise paper (the inside is brown cardstock) and used the 1 inch circle punch to create the border of gold and brown circles. I actually purchased the flower embellishments from Hobby Lobby last week for only $1.07 (32 came in the package, gotta love clearance!) and the colors of the flowers is where the inspiration for this card came from. I used the Elmer's glue pen to apply the flowers around the border. As for the quote in the middle, I typed it on the computer in brown font and printed it on a transparent shipping label, which I then applied to the transparent paper and cut the border using decorative scissors, and then applied it to the card.
Here are some other views and close-ups of the card:
The card is rather unique, this is the first circle card I have ever made and I just went along with my ideas as they came. I must admit I've been feeling sort of ashamed of my card making lately, after all the blog viewing I do I feel like my cards are nowhere near as beautiful as all of yours are, mostly due to the fact that I don't own a Cricut and everything I create is strictly by hand. I've been considering saving up to purchase a Cuttlebug but I'm still undecided because I know that once I buy it I'm just going to want more and more cartridges, which aren't very cheap. Any advice?
