Paper Poppy kit club...

Each Tuesday in July, I'll be posting some goodies made with the Paper Poppy kit and this week we were challenged to use circles on a project! I ended up making two cards for the challenge....
I adore these little flowers that came in the kit, so easy to just peel and stick them! The little tag on the side was made by punching a circle with my punch and then cutting it in half. I punched a hole in it for tying on the ribbon.
To create the balloons on this card, I punched 3 large circles and then punched a heart out of each circle for a negative effect! Raising some of them up with pop dots shows off the negative punch a little better. You know how I feel about dimensional things! ;)

I embossed the background with the Cuttlebug machine, then drew the strings with pencil and stitched over the lines by hand before adhering the front of the card to the base.

The "Happy Day" sentiment is cut from one of the Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride journaling cards! (and the Airmail too)

PS. You may have wondered why I haven't been machine stitching on my projects? My new sewing maching and I are fighting right now. I will update when we are back on speaking terms!

Sending you wishes for a great day,
Danielle
