I made this card forOur Craft Lounge’s Sketch challenge and the Free For All Challenge on Splitcoast.  I cut and embossed three 1 5/8″ circles with Classic Circle Nestabilities out of Neenah Solar White cardstock and stamped an image from the new OCL set The Art of Nature  on each circle with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink . The images were colored with Copic Markers. I went a little crazy and used quite a lot of different colors.  You can see all the markers I used in the thumbnail as well as closeup shots of each image.

The card base is a 4 1/2″ x 12″ piece of textured Chocolate Chip cardstock folded in half. A 4 1/2″ x 5″ piece of Be Loved Paper from My Mind’s Eye was cut and embossed on the lower edge with Lattice Borderabilities. Another piece of Be Loved  Paper was cut down to 4″ x 4 1/2″ and stitched to the 4″ x 5″ layer.


White Silk Ribbon from May Arts was tied around the layers. A tag was cut out of Neenah White cardsdtock with a Spellbinder Die. The sentiment was stamped on it with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and the inner part of the tag was colored with Copic Marker BG10. It was tied around the ribbon with a  Basic Grey Button and string.

The images were adhered to the card front with dimensionals. Three Kaisercraft Pearl Pearls finish off the card base.


For the inside of the card I cut a 4 3/16″ x 5 11/16″ piece of Whisper White cardstock and layered it with more Be Loved paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
