Hello everyone! It's another New Release from
Summer Leaf Background
There's lots of possibilities with this set. I chose to do a slimline card...
because I'm obsessed with slimline cards! I liked the idea of the 3 circles
with the design inside. But I had to plan carefully with the circle cutting
die. It could have gone wrong so easily!
After some careful measuring, I die cut 3 circles using a double stitched
circle die that measure 1 7/8" on a 3 1/4" x 8 1/4" white card stock
panel. All the measuring paid off because it looked very even!!!!!
Next I printed out my image and the sentiment I thought I was going to use
onto Neenah 80b Classic Crest Solar White card stock. My main image
measured approximately 6" x 6".
I colored my image using Copics. Using a pencil I drew 3 squares on the
leaf pattern and only colored in those squares. There was no need to color
in the entire image.
Copic colors used:
G00, YG41, G02
After coloring the squares I cut them and glued them behind each
one of the circle cut-outs.
I love the effect I got with 3 simple circles! I couldn't make the sentiment
I had originally chosen work with my layout so instead I printed out a
sentiment from the Springtime Background Set. It was a short sentiment
and I liked how the black of the background tied in with the leaf print.
I printed it out onto a very pale green card stock which I decided to use
for my card base as well.
As you can see when I trimmed it out I left a very narrow border of
the pale green paper showing. I mounted it on foam tape and placed
it across the center of the center circle of leaves.
I decided to mount this main panel on a piece of black card stock leaving
a very narrow edge of it showing. Then I mounted it onto the pale
green card base. And my card was done!
I hope you enjoyed today's project! It's clean and simple!
