Peace and Joy Circle Cards (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

My second post today... If you missed the first one, just scroll down or follow a direct link here.

Today was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made these Peace and Joy Circle Cards.

To make these cards, I used GORGEOUS Jane's Doodles 'Christmas Blessings' stamp set.

First I made a card with stripped patterned paper. I liked it so much I made another one using tree bark (woodgrain impression) pattern paper. These papers are form Teresa Collins 'Something Wonderful' Paper Pad.

How I made my cards...

First I cut circles I needed. Here are the measurements:
  • card base: 3 7/8" x 2
  • circle panel: 3 3/4"

I heat embossed in white a sentiment on the patterned paper circle panel, splattered the panel with a white acrylic paint mixed with water and left it dry.

Then I heat embossed in white two poinsettias on a vellum paper, fussy cut them out and glued on the panel.

I glued two card base circles together to create a card base, glued the panel on the card base and embellished it with couple pearls. As a finishing touch I highlighted some splatters on the panel, drew couple more white dots and my 1st card was finished. :o)

Repeated everything for the 2nd card. :o)

Cards dimensions: d = 98 mm (3 7/8")
