My brother and his wife have birthdays a week apart…which makes it fun to send them coordinating cards! I also want to take a moment and give a shout-out for their fantastic website, Pixelicious Planet
, where they document the amazing trips they take all around the world.
This pair were made as part of Kylie Bertucci’s Crazy Crafters Facebook Challenge (#CCFC01) which was a colour challenge:
Since the pair have a more contemporary sense of style I got to play around with more abstract designs.
I punched out a variety of circles and just kept moving the circles around until I had a layout I liked. Then I glued them down and ran the panel through the Big Shot with the Dot to Dot embossing folder. Instead of centering the layer on the card base, I offset it into the lower right corner.
For this card I used a die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits in each of the challenge colours. Affixing Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to the back of the card stock before cutting the shape made them super-easy to adhere to the Whisper White layer. The sentiment is from the More Than Words Sale-A-Bration Coordination set.
Here’s what I used to make these cards…just click on a pic to go to my Online Store:
