Autumn Blessings

I just love a round card!  For this one I used AJVD Basic and Polka Dot Circle Backdrops, the Polka Dot dies pierce a border along the edge, this can be stitched with embroidery floss if you desire.
This card is also showing a BRAND NEW DIE!!!
Swirly Vine ~ Jillian wanted a nice elegant accent for her two flower dies and this one certainly fits the bill. It is delicate yet a great size for most cards and projects.  The Swirly Vine measures 2 x 5" and I love bending it around and those swirls are fun to stretch a little to become 3D.

I layered and adhered the brown and yellow circle die cuts, then placed the outer layer of the Layered Flower Burst die to make the recessed area for the intricate Flower Burst die cut to lay.
Then wrapped the vine around that background layer and Voila . . . a pretty and simple round card!

Clear stamps are wonderful when you want an arched sentiment, this one from Hello Sunshine. I just arranged it on the block in an arch to match the top of the circle.  I used Wendy Vecchi's Signature Archival Ink in Potting Soil to match my brown layer perfectly!

Note:  if you cut two pieces of the largest Basic Circle Backdrop, score one 1/2" from the top and adhere it to the front piece to make a card! These dies are sized 4.25 so they will fit an A2 envelop! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
