More Circle Cards (Using Up My In Colors!)

I had so much fun making circle cards for Tamara's Sketch #54 that I had to make more! Plus, I have tons of In Color paper left that I need to use up before it's retired.

I made these cards for the people in my Birthday Club for August (my customers sign up for the Birthday Club, and when it's their birthday month, I send them a card that I don't write in so they can reuse it, plus they get some special birthday coupons).

I used the Scallop Circle Cards that I have left from the Mini Catalogue, along with some Afternoon Tea designer series paper, layered with Wild Wasabi or Chocolate Chip. For the image, I stamped the butterfly from Priceless on a rectangle of Whisper White, then stamped it again on some scrap paper, cut it out and adhered it with a dimensional for a 3-D look. I used my paper piercer to make some crazy lines and faux-stitched with my Chocolate Chip and Bashful Blue Stampin' Write Markers. Then I tied some linen thread around it, tied a Soft Subtles button through, and adhered it with a mini glue dot.

These were quick and easy to make a whole bunch of! I hope there are some more Scallop Circle cards in the new catalogue!

Thanks for reading!

Blessings to you,
