My Friend Card
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.
