This morning I took a look around some of my favourite challenge blogs and decided to make a birthday card to enter.
Die Cuttin Diva's - challenge #33 Having Fun at the Circus
Birthday Sundaes - challenge #28 Use buttons- birthday card
My Craft Spot - challenge #27 Use ribbon
So I came up with this Big Top card....
I decided to use the circus tent cut from Create a Critter and use my Gypsy to weld and make the shaped card and layers....enough said...almost didn't happen as so many problems along the way,fortunately I am stubborn as a mule and refused to let it get the better of me and eventually got there. My Gypsy and I are not the best of friends!!!Heehee.
I embossed the layers and inked all edges.Added white seam binding ribbon (tricky to say the least as I wanted it to look as if it was flowing) and buttons.
I added a horse button as I thought it reminded me of one you would see at the circus. But this is what it looked like before I did.
If anyone wants to know sizing just drop me an email or comment and will dig out my (hidden in the bottom of a drawer) Gypsy. Couldn't face switching it back on at the time of writing this to look!! Lol.
Have a great Monday.
Thanks for looking in.
