One Layer Text Circles

Happy Friday!!  I've set aside some time today just for cardmaking!  Boy do I need that.  I made a fun one layer card for a few recent challenges that I did not want to miss out on.


How fun is this technique?  If you haven't seen the video tutorial on how to do this visit the Papertrey link above.  I used the Book Print IP with some Spellbinders Circle Nesties.  I love the look of the stamped images from Grunge Me over the text impression.  I twisted some black and pink floss together to finish off the card.

 


All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated

StampsGrunge Me
Paper:  Raspberry Fizz
Ink:  Black (memento)
Other:  Bookprint Impression plate, circle nestibilities (spellbinders), DMC floss, corner rounder

What a cool card! Love it!

Sara, A+! Seriously, this is sooo creative and fabulous looking! The fact that you used nesties and therefore got impression both outside and *inside* the circle--if that's not Tweet-worthy, I don't know what is! I love this!

What a great card...love the texty IP and the pink base. I try so hard to move away from my fave white base. And I'm so impressed that you could make 1 card fit 4 challenges. Go girl!!

Oh Sara, you have done it again. You are so good at thinking outside the box and coming up with genius ideas that make me wonder why I didn't think the same thing! I really love those "scattered" impressed circles and how you stamped inside them! And I'm delighted to see you playing along with CAS-ual Fridays TEXT challenge too.

Amy said...

Sara, just everything about this card is soo fun! Love this technique and you did such a great job with it! Look at all those challenges you got in there too! :) Hope you had a great Mother's Day!
