"Ewe" are so sweet!

OMGoodness!  I {love} this card!!!   Ok, so if you read any of my earlier posts from today, you know that I cut an entire 12 x 12 sheet of "honey comb" looking paper into 1 inch strips and only used 2 of those strips...  which meant that I had 10 more to use!  Well, I only used 2 for this card so now I'm down to 8!  lol  I will use them! 

I've been asked to post the "recipes" for my cards.....  ie; cut sizes, etc....  so here goes!

On my Gypsy, I welded two 5 1/2 inch scalloped circles from the Mini Monograms cart.  To weld these, I added a small rectangle between the two of them and that also provided the "fold" for the top of the card.  I cut another 5 1/2 inch scalloped circle out of this awesome pink cardstock that I got from the "Rustic" DCWV stack.  I absolutely {love} this stack of paper!  The colors are so rich!  Next, I cut a 4 inch circle (and a black shadow) and zig-zagged it with my sewing machine.  I got the "Ewe" from the Country Life cart and that is cut at 3 inches.  The fence is also from Country Life cart. 

of course, I used my SU chalks to shade the Ewe...
and my white Gelly Roll pen to highlight the fence a little...

I added the brown ribbon to the top to cover the white rectangle I used to connect the scalloped circles...

You can see the "folding" here.... 


Happy Scrapping!

This is such a wonderful card! I love how you took the scallopes and made a card out of it. Wow so creative. Can't wait to see what you do with your other 8 paper strips. :)
