Am I late? I hope I can still get in to the Tea Party (MMTPT151), but I bet I’ll have to sneak in the back way. See my card has corners and it’s supposed to be round. I tried, rahly I did (said in my best Katherine Hepburn voice-which is hard for a southern girl, dontcha know?)
I started out round…you can see by the center layers. But this card just wanted to be square. Who am I to argue? So I’ll just be hangin’ out by the back door and hopefully I won’t be alone.
All images are Our Daily Bread designs. I stamped the crochet circle image 3 times, colored two and cut them out in layers. One water colored flower only. Two was the the inside circle, cut w/ a Spellbinders circle. Third was the whole image cut w/ an ODBD matching crochet circle die.
For the big circle and square bg, I used water colors to make the bg and then stamped the crochet bg on top. I stamped and cut (w/ the matching ODBD border die) 4 strips of the crochet border to make the frame. As I was putting it together, I got to looking at the negative strips and decided to use them as well. So I added a little color to them and attached them offset behind the crochet borders. The sentiment is also on one of the negative strips. The finished card measures 5″ square.
