My Friend Card

Aug 5, 2011

The embell­ish­ment on this card can be cre­at­ed and used for so many dif­fer­ent themes. I love mak­ing them for birth­day cards and oth­er spe­cial occa­sions. All you need are two dif­fer­ent sized scal­lop cir­cle punch­es. I used the Fiskars Extra Large and Large Scal­lop Cir­cle Punch­es, pat­terned paper, the but­ton is option­al as you can place a sen­ti­ment in the cen­ter if you would like, some rib­bon, pop dots and Stick­les (of course).

Punch one scal­loped cir­cle using each punch, place the small­er scal­lop cir­cle onto the cen­ter of the large scal­lop using pop dots, cut two pieces of rib­bon to the desired lengths and attach them to the back of the large scal­lop cir­cle. I use Fab­ri-Tac as I find this holds trims bet­ter and you use far less liq­uid adhe­sive. You could use a tape run­ner type adhe­sive too. I placed a strip from a card­stock stick­er that came with my “Siren’s Call” kit down the cen­ter of each rib­bon. Once it was all put togeth­er I accent­ed the scal­lop edges using Plat­inum Stick­les.

This card is cre­at­ed using the awe­some Cocoa Daisy August main kit “Siren’s Call” and Add On kit “Calyp­so”. I love how Chris­tine mix­es and match­es so many dif­fer­ent paper lines. If I had to do this I would nev­er get a project com­plet­ed. Here’s a lit­tle secret… mix­ing and match­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers freaks me out so I nev­er do it. You will notice if I cre­ate a project with­out using a kit I stick with one man­u­fac­tur­er. If not, it’s a Cocoa Daisy Kit. I just can­not han­dle the stress of it all and Chris­tine makes it so easy for me.

Over the next few weeks I will be in Buck­han­non, WV vis­it­ing fam­i­ly. Dad, Mom and I are dri­ving up to see my mom’s fam­i­ly. Sad­ly, Alan and Ans­ley have to work so they will be here in Frisco along with this unbear­able heat. But this trip is going to force me to sit and chill. I have a real­ly hard time chill­ing at home as I always think of things that need to be done around the house, dead­lines I need to meet and ideas in my head that must be cre­at­ed etc. Work­ing from home is both a bless­ing and a curse… I have the lux­u­ry of being home but I nev­er feel I can stop, lock the door and leave the office.

So make sure you con­tin­ue to check my blog each day for the next two weeks as I have guest design­ers all set up to post for me. You are going to love the line up. They are all awe­some and I can­not wait to read their posts.
