The Card Concept 29

February 18, 2015

Hi blog friends!  Sorry my little blog has been so quiet...I just have some things going on right now.  But today it is time for another new challenge at The Card Concept!!
For my card, I used the Get Well sentiment and muted tones of all the amazing colors in the crocheted stars!  I've used an eclectic mix of patterned papers, and gave it a bit of a spring feel with the wood veneer & paper flowers.  Check it out!
Creation Instructions:
  1. Make an A2 card from white cardstock.
  2. Cut two blocks of patterned paper slightly smaller, and adhere to the front.
  3. Diecut the stitched rectangle from yellow paper.
  4. Adhere to the front at an angle, then trim off the excess from each edge.
  5. Layer green & pink paper blocks to the top.
  6. Diecut the circle from numbered paper, and adhere it to the top with foam dots.
  7. Diecut the banner from white cardstock & stamp the sentiment to it.
  8. Adhere it sentiment banner to the top of the circle with foam dots.
  9. accent around the banner with paper flowers & wood veneer accents.
  10. Embellish with enamel dots to finish.
