Today it's my turn to pick again from the September/October issue of Paper Crafts magazine, and I must have chosen well -- both Donelda and I ended up making two cards from my choice! I picked Ellie Augustin's Brew Some Fun card on p. 46. I chose it both for the layout and for the fact that it wasn't a standard A2 size card. First up, the card I'm undecided about:
I decided to go with colours similar to the ones on the inspiration card. The edges of the patterned paper and the pine cone circle are sponged with gold ink, and the image and sentiment are embossed in gold. The sentiment does show up better in real life than it does in the photo!
Now this one I'm really happy with!
I thought this little polar bear scene was perfect to highlight in a circular frame! And since I already had this patterned paper out from the card I posted yesterday, it all came together quite easily. ☺
If Donelda had as much fun as I've had doing this, don't be surprised if we do it again one of these days! For now, head on over to Donelda's blog to see her terrific creations!
