TCM: Circle It

Friday, July 19, 2013

You've made it to day four of The Craft's Meow's July Release.  Yay!  Today we're sharing projects inspired by our fifth and final, new, stamp set, Circle It, which also happens to be the July FREE gift with a $50 purchase.  Enjoy!
I started this card by piecing together the vintage photo, "SEPTEMBER" ruler, and floral, patterned papers, along with a piece of Black cardstock, onto the Oatmeal, cardstock, card base.  I then surrounded them with a black-threaded, straight, machine-stitched, double frame and connected the latter two with black-threaded, zig-zag, machine stitches, before stamping the Black cardstock, in White ink, with the "thanks" sentiment, as well as its circle frame.
The card face was then wrapped, just below the ruler paper, with a length of gingham ribbon, which I tied, in a bow, near its left edge and embellished with a red button, laced with a couple of hemp twine bows.
Finally, the apple was die-cut from red polka dot and green, designer, patterned papers, as well as a bit of Chocolate Chip cardstock; pieced together; adhered, in the top center of the card face, with foam tape; and embellished with a red, heart button, laced with hemp twine.
Believe it or not, we've still got more to share, friends!  I hope you'll join us, tomorrow, for the New Release Blog Hop.  I've cooked up a number, featuring images from both of Karen Baker's new sets, to share with you all.  Until then, please be sure to stop by the TCM Store Blog, by 8 pm PST tomorrow, for your chance to win today's stamp set, and have a terrific start to your weekends!  Hugs!
