Hello there, Jackie here today. I know we are well into Autumn but I just couldn’t resist one last summery make. I have mixed the old with the new to create this little bit of paradise.
Start by preparing the card base. Use the largest die from the circle set 1116 to draw a circle on the front of a 4.25 x 4.25″ card blank ensuring to leave the circle overhanging the top edge slightly, carefully cut out the circle creating a circular shaped card. Use the same die to die cut a circular panel.
Die cut and build all the elements inking or colouring which ever way you would like, here I have used distress inks around the edges leaving a small white area in the centres of the flowers and leaves.
To create the wooden sign. Use the chisel end of a brown alcohol marker to draw irregular lines onto a scrap piece of brown card. Fussy cut out a plank shape and ink around the edges then white heat emboss your sentiment.
Attach the circular panel to the card blank then arrange all the elements fixing some in place with 3d foam pads for added dimension. If you do not want your card to rock then snip off a small piece on the reverse side of the card blank.
Thank you for stopping by today…I hope I have inspired you to mix the old with the new.
Happy crafting – Jackie
