Thinking of You Upsy Daisy Card

This has been a week of "get well" card making. Kind of sad but yet it's SO much better than needing sympathy cards. I made one of those a while back and have not needed it. I'm hanging on to that one for luck!!

Anyway, this get well/thinking of you card was fun to make. First of all I just LOVE the Dusty Durango color. It's kind of a rust and pumpkin color mixed. And of course I had to buy the Designer Series paper to match!

The stamp used here is the Stampin' up! "Upsy Daisy." A set I just LOVE but have not used it much other than on technique pages! There's SO much you can do with this stamp set and the image can be used for a variety of occasions and needs. I LOVE stamp sets like that. To me it seems like you are getting your monies worth out of it when you can pick it up and use it for a multitude of events/occasions.

And I love the "Fleurette's". These little crocheted flowers are the cutest. The center of the flower is a punched out piece of decorative paper and the clear part from the "Build a Brad" set.

The main part of this card was done using Basic Black card stock and the Dusty Durango was layered on top. I like to use black layers on my cards when I can, it makes the colors you use pop.

Oh and the words are from a fun set called "Teeny Tiny Wishes." That set covers a lot of occasions and events as well! Another reason why I bought it!!

So off in the mail this goes tomorrow! Finally too, it's a bit late in going out. I'm SO far behind on my card and emails. How does that happen? Things will be better here when Sara from Sara's Creative Adventures comes down sometime and organizes my workroom! *winks* She has a fun blog, check it out!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Wanda, I used a Circle Cutter at a card class (I wasn't the teacher this time) and it worked great. I ordered one for myself. Now all I get are wierd edges that don't meet back at the start of the cutting .... I use temporary adhesive on the glass met. What do you think I'm doing wrong? I'd love to make this card and use as a template for later ....

I got a fabulous email suggesting that I answer questions in my comment section so here it goes! As for the circle cutter not meeting back at the start what is happening here is your blade is probably on one side of the edge of the circle when you start and on the other when you end. Try focusing on cutting to one edge of the circle or the other. That little distance between the circle lines does make a difference. Let me know how that works out for you.
