Club Circle Thanks

I had club last weekend and finally I'm getting around to sharing the cards! Crazy time of year right?? This first one was inspired by cards that Jackie Bolhuis shared on her blog HERE. Quick, simple and a great way to use up DSP scraps!! Here is the card my girls made.

I looked through my DSP and decided to go with the Summer Smooches pack. Love these bright colors and how well the different prints go together!! The background is Whisper White with an accent layer of Lucky Limeade on a base of Rich Razzleberry. Start by punching your circles. I did 5 different sizes: 2-1/2" for the multi-color print in the center, 1-3/4 for the Island Indigo at the back, 1-3/8" for the Read Red, 1" for the Lucky Limeade & 3/4 for the Razzleberry. Lay them out on the Whisper White before attaching them! The red and blue are tucked under the multi-color and the green and razzlebery are over. Once you like the layout, attach the circles with snail adhesive. Next, we stamped the saying just under the circles. At this point, before adding the flower accent or attaching to another layer you can texture if you'd like. I did a few that way, and all my girls chose to do that. Here is one done that way.


Click to enlarge. I used the Fancy Fan Folder on this one, and it is recessed instead of raised. That wasn't intentional, I just didn't stop to think which way I put it in the folder. But, it looks OK. I also used the Petals a Plenty folder and I think that is what the girls all chose.

The last accent on the card is a Daffodil Delight flower punched with the Boho Blossoms punch. It is attached direct to the background. Over it we added a flower button from the Brights sets (any will work with this paper). In the center of the button we knotted white Bakers Twine. Attach the button with a mini glue dot. 

Imagine the possibilities here with all the DSP choices we have!! Fun fun!! 

Thanks for stopping by today!! Back soon with the other two cards from last weekend!!
