Isn't this a pretty photo? I struggled a bit with the dark brown in my card, and actually ended up using more of a medium brown, but I do like how it turned out. My biggest struggle though was in photographing my card! The Thinlit Circle Die card makes a "flip" card, and I never thought about how hard it would be to photograph it...just how fun to make it and "flip it! Anyway, take a look:
I started with a red card base and then stamped with gold ink on my two cream panels. I also spritzed the cream panels with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist, so IRL it really sparkles, but unfortunately not so much in the picture! In the center circle I added a scalloped circle of POW gold glitter paper, and then added a small cream colored circle and a part of the Nativity Border (Die-Versions) in Soft Suede. I also added a small crystal gem in the center of the star to make it "shine" a bit more. On the flip side of the circle I embossed in gold the "Joy" from SU!'s "The Sounding Joy" stamp set.
The "Joy" drove me a bit nuts as I'm pretty anal about things being centered and lined up, but there was just no way this sentiment was going to be centered in the small scalloped circle and still look like the word "Joy"! So anyway, it is what it is, and I love the way it "flips", so all is good! :0)
It's a beautiful cool and crisp Fall day here in my neck of the woods, so my hubby and I are going to the apple orchard for some Honeycrisp apples...LOVE those apples! :0) Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
