#125 Smiles Make You Younger
Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - circles
Sponsor & prize this week - Nitwits ($10 voucher for some gorgeous papers of your choice!!)
This week the DT have all used papers from our generous sponsor this week, Nitwits, and I chose this brilliant kit called 'Away We Go' which was so perfect for the layout I had made myself for this fabulous image from Mo Manning. Followers of mine will know I have a soft spot for this cutie called 'Georgie Cartwheels', and I coloured him with Promarkers to match in with these fabby papers.
This one took a bit of planning, but that isn't anything new for one of my cards, LOL, but having decided on my layout & which of the papers should go where, I then cut all the printed circles as p&cs (for the card front as well as on the inside of the card), on my Cameo, having to import the relevant paper to each circle and rescale and pan as was necessary. Pretty time consuming I can tell you! The grosgrain ribbons & button embellishments were also from this brilliant Nitwits kit and were similarly printed off and cut using the Cameo. There are some great looking arrows in the kit too, but the ones I used here are not them. LOL. Those were angular and I wanted mine more rounded to reflect the circle theme so found these, made them into cut files and recoloured them to match in with the papers exactly. One of the bonuses of using digital papers.
I printed lots more Georgies in circles and rectangles to roll across the inside of my card and the stamp-like element punctuating Georgie's cartwheeling is also from the 'Away We Go' kit which I converted to a cut file to perfectly cut around the 'perforated' edges. I kept this blank so I can write the 'to' & 'from' later but the sentiment on the front of the card is from TLC.
This is my last card as a member of the I♥ Promarkers DT having been there for 2 years. I hope that you have enjoyed seeing my creations as part of this challenge team and I hope that you will all continue to follow my crafting progress in the blog world.
