The new technique here is the focal point of this card. The focal point of this card was somewhat discerning. I was not sure that I would be able to perform this task since there really were not any measurements. Let’s start with the background. I stamped Bazzill Marshmallow card stock (this is also my card base in A2 size) with Close to My Heart’s In The Background Chevron stamp I used my MISTI so that I could stamp it 3 times. The MISTI really made it easy to layer the stamp so that it looks like it is on going. I stamped this in Versamark and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. The I sponged the card base with Tim Holtz distress inks in Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves. To the card base I added card stock from Close to My Heart called Thistle sized at 5 in by 3.75 in. I then added white card stock sized a quarter inch smaller than the Thistle. Now for the focal point…. I used my circle cutting dies in the 4th from the smallest size and my Big Shot to cut out the circles. I bought them from a thrift store so no sizes were attached to them. However this technique does not really need any size. After cutting out 4 circles ( I later noted that I only had room for 3) I cut out another one in scrap card stock. The scrap one I folded in half and then folded it in quarters. I drew a line to connect the outer ends of each fold line. This became the square template used for the inner printed card stock. I cut out the squares using the template and adhered each square in the circles. I scored the circle at the ends of the squares and folded over the edges. I then glued each circle using Tombo liquid glue so that if I had to re-position I could do it easily, one at the top and two at the bottom. I used So Suzy Stamps Just For You in the middle of the two bottom circles, added some bling and there you have it. A beautiful card and I was able to learn something new.
