Last week I visited AJ at the Willow Garden and absolutely loved this card she created. I have a few of the Cuttlebug mini embossing folders, but the one time I used it I found I ended up with the lines from the folder embossed as well as the image. So these have sat in my drawer unused for months.
Fast forward to the weekend.... I tried the idea of three circles in a row on a piece of scrap cardstock (yes, there are images on the back... I truly grabbed this out of my recycling bin) and tried it for myself. Imagine my surprise when there were no extra lines embossed on my cardstock! I was thrilled
So I cut the scrap piece down to size and decided to try to design a card using the scalloped framed circles I created.
I decided that this Michael's stamp was the perfect size for inside these circles. I stamped them, picked my patterned paper, coloured them and kept going.
