Sharing a card I made with a leftover piece of card stock that I could not throw away and really sure I could use it..
I needed a circle for another project, cut it out, and then looked at the negative..[as you do]..and had an idea..this could probably have been a lot simpler but I didn't think about that at the time..
So there I was sweating in my craftroom thinking I wish it was Winter, and then looked at this negative card.
Then cut a circle of accetate glued it in place on the inside...and added a frame
See...scoring it into a fold was not easy as I only had package plastic to use..
Then I took this picture and now I'm not sure what it is, ha ha ha..
So another frame on the inside and my beautiful wolf...
There it is open...
and again for some reason..
Then went through my dies for vines or a border or something to cover things up that you don't want to see and found this one in my stash..
And this leafy border die which went quite well with the other one, so on they went...
I thought it looked pretty good..
Added black card stock on the inside..again, the long way round, things could have been so much easier..
And the final card with it's envelope...
So there we go..
Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..
