Well girls - today is a JUGS 3D/Template challenge and I've been enjoying time with my DD who has been home from Afghanistan. I did not get a JUGS 3D or template project done for today's challenge BUT I have a patriotic card I created a while ago and never posted so I'm going to substitute that for you today. Please pop over to Just Us Girls to see this week's challenge.
A while back a friend shared a simple card with me. (I have no idea who first created the simple layout - if it was you please let me know so I can give you credit!) My mojo popped in with a couple of changes to it - it's still clean and simple but I loved how quickly it comes together. I call it Nine Circles because that's the basis for it. I made several (see below.)
I created this simple "nine circles" card for one of our staff members who recently got her US Citizenship. I made it before I dashed off for work. Now THAT'S what I call a fast and easy (FAE instead of CAS?!?) card!! I started out by dry embossing my white CS with a square nestie. I then stamped 9 circles using the open circle stamp from PTI's Polka Dot Basics set. I just "eyeballed" them for alignment so they may not be perfectly aligned. I then added rhinestones or silver beads etc. into the center of each circle. On two of the cards I purposely used a larger pearl to offset the balanced layout. I then stamped a sentiment from Signature Greetings (PTI) and mounted my white CS to a colored base and I was done.
Here's my patriotic card complete with matching envelope. I stamped the same flag image on the inside of the card.
Here are three more basic "nine circle" thank you cards. I really like the way they turned out. Hope you enjoy them as well.
Thanks for stopping by. I'll be MIA for a few weeks since I have a lot of intense commitments coming up BUT also some vacation time. I will miss my faithful followers but will come back with more ideas I hope!
Hug the ones you love!
