Joyful Stars August Blog Hop

It's hard to believe that it's already time for another blog hop! I can hardly wait to see what all of the talented consultants participating in this hop have created for you this month. This blog hop will be especially exciting because it will contain all NEW PRODUCT from the Annual Inspirations catalog that went live on August 1st. The hop is a circle, so it doesn't matter if you are coming from my friend Stephanie's Blog or if you start here on my blog. Just continue around until you get back to the blog you started on to make sure you see all of the wonderful artwork!

This month, I would like to share with you a 5"x7" card that I made featuring a removable ornament. I started with the stamp called Classy Doily. I stamped the image eight times on the corresponding cuts from the Cricut Artiste cartridge. Next, I used our brand new ShinHan Touch Twin alcohol markers to color the images. Then, I cut the images and adhered them together using foam tape. The ornament has several layers, which creates a great deal of dimension. I repeated this process for the back side so that the ornament can be viewed from any angle. Finally, I cut the scalloped circle from the center of the card so that the ornament can be seen on both the outside and the inside of the card. The ornament is attached to the card using metallic bakers twine and two pewter brads. I used the Snowhaven paper pack to create this card.

X7188B - Snowhaven Paper Packet
B1424 - Classy Doily Stamp
