Embellish Color Challenge - Circle card


Happy Beautiful Sunday!!! At least it is here where I am. Perfect temperatures and the sunshine is gorgeous! Anywho.... I got a chance to play in another Embellish Magazine Color Challenge. This time we had to make a circle card. I have NEVER made a circle card before! Wow, am I behind the times or what? I started out cutting the scallop base with the Cricut Mini Monogram Cartridge. Then I used Creative Memories Circle Cutter to cut out the actual card that flips open. I used this method because I could stop at the top giving enough room to score it so it will flip open. Then went back to the Cricut and cut the polka do circle out with the solid circle option.
The cup and saucer was stamped and cut out then raised on pop dots. Before that though I added some "foam" with Liquid Applique. I decided to add a little more brown so used some tiny buttons however....I did not place them exactly like I would have wanted to so I tried to pick them up and replace them and tore the paper a little. Have you ever used glue dots and tried to reposition? Yea...doesn't work so much. Whats done is done so I did not have a choice but to leave it. Well, I could have started all over but I have more things to do today. Thanks so much for looking. Hope you get a chance to play in the challenge also!
Cheers!
