August 2011 CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop Featuring Circle Cards

Welcome to the CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop featuring Circle Cards.  If you've arrived from{Luisa's} blog, you are on the right path.  If you are just starting here, welcome to our circle hop.  Simply click on the link at the end of the post, and it will take you to the next blog in the hop.  Once you get back here, you've completed the hop!

Circle cards can be unique and lots of fun, but they can also be a hassle.  Trying to cut your circle just right, trying to find an envelope to fit it...ugh!  But, Close To My Heart has made it easier to make it from your heart with Circle Cards.  They are available in Colonial White (Z1352) or White Daisy (Z1353), and they come with matching envelopes.

I made this card using they Key To My Heart paper pack (a special from a few years back).  I matched the paper up to the card, and using the card as my template cut out a piece for the front and a piece for the inside.  After gluing on the paper and letting it dry, I added some Sorbet buttons, Juniper ribbon with Juniper Bigger Brad, and used 3-D Mounting Foam to mount the sentiment, which is from Salutation Seals and was stamped in Sorbet ink on Colonial White cardstock, and I used a Marvy Uchida punch for the circle.  The buttons were adhered with Liquid Glass, and my Circle Card is cute, coordinated, and quick!  

Circle Cards are a cute and fast way to make cards and their size makes them convenient to help you use up your scraps.

Now, hop on around to {Adeline's} blog to find more inspiration!
