I am preparing this post ahead of time because the day you see it will be my first day back to work! Can't imagine how that will go as I am told that the building is still a mess from the workmen who are putting air conditioning in the building! Could end up to be a frustrating and dirty day! But we do getto start the day with a nice breakfast, at least!
This card is so special because it uses the rosette die and the new paper clay and molds. Fun!
Some folks find the medallions a bit frustrating to make, but when you use a glue gun (I usually avoid glue guns) it works very well. I did not use the rosette die for this (shocking, right?). Instead, we simply used a stylus and a straight edge to score from point to point on the Happy Day image. We also used a small circle punch to cut the scooped edges around the outside. The rose in the center is the paper clay which was dyed to color using a reinker. Do you like the fake ribbon on the left side? I saw that idea on Brandyscards blog. You stamp the image multiple times and it gives a really cool effect...and uses up those scraps of white cardstock we all end up with. Isn't it a sweet quick card?
