The next step is to use your coluzzle cutting system and cut out an oval...I used the 5th one from the center and cut through both layers (tip: hold the cutting pen at a 90 degree andgle from the paper you are cutting)
The final step with the coluzzle is to cut another oval...I used the 6th oval from the inside. I center the cutting system on the designer paper and it away.
I then used the center leftover piece to punch out 45 (1/4) inch circles and adhere the opposite pattern to the inside of the oval, adhered that to the card base and this is what it looks like...45 little circles seems like a lot, but it actually went really fast!
The final steps are to decotate and stamp as you wish! I tied a piece of wide vanilla grosgrain ribbon and then stamped the bird image twice... once with river rock and then again over the top but slightly to the side on stazon timber brown.
And stamped the flourish and flur-de-lis on the inside along with a sentiment and called it a day!
What do you think? Do you like it? The colors are from todays color challenge 176 Soft sky, river rock and very vanilla. I think it turned out super cute and just perfect for some anniversaries I have coming up!
Thanks for stoppin by and don't forget about my blog candy here...you have until Monday!
