Circle Card

I'd been wanting to play with a round card for quite awhile, and the this week's bonus sketch on SCS was just the nudge I needed. I started out with this great BasicGrey paper - the design has rounded elements in it, so I thought it would work well. After playing with a number of different elements, I settled on using the chipboard frame (Cherry Arte). I stamped the words (Limited Edition Art Warehouse stamps - Danelle Johnson) and then circle punched them. I accented the frame with a bit of brown ric rac just to add a bit of texture, and then then finally added a bit of chocolate chip cardstock to the spine (embossed with the fiskars leather texture plate). The circular shape definitely took more effort than a standard card, but hopefully my hubby will appreciate it!!
