Round and Round

Jodi here with you again today! One of the things you will quickly learn about me is that I am always looking for fun ways to add texture to my creations. For this card I wanted a tone on tone but of course needed texture so I cut a doily from the same pattern paper that I used for the background. The doily really dressed up the papers, but by using the same tone paper keeps from overpowering the rest of the card. I created the flower by cutting three layers of petals, then inked and folded the petals for dimension.

As soon as I saw the papers in the Boys Rule kit, I knew the Inverted Scallop Circles would be the perfect touch!!! The circles come in 6 different sizes offering a wide range of uses. I love that the Sliver Stacker Layers fit perfectly inside Nesting dies taking all the guess work out and leaving more room for fun!

I tucked a few in and around the cluster!

One of the little circles even fit perfectly inside the chipboard planet! How fun and easy is that?!
