Celebrate today and everyday!

Hello, Jessica here! I created a fun card with products from the MarchCreative Cafe Kit of the Month called - Special Celebration! Today I'm using the fun set, #eatcake!

I used several layers to create this card. However it's very simple. Ready? 

First, the base layer. For this card, my base layer is the pink cardstock. I cut it to 3 7/8"X3 7/8". (My card is 4"X4".) Then, I cut the floral patterned paper to the same size, 3 7/8"X3 7/8".

Using my circle die, I placed the top part of the patterned paper UNDER the die, and the bottom part of the paper OVER the die. This allowed me to create the rounded edge at the top of the patterned paper. While the paper was still in the die, I placed it on top of the card stock, ensuring the bottoms lined up, then I drew the dotted lines using my .05 multiliner. 

I adhered the patterned paper to the card stock and wrapped some washi tape (from February's KOTM) around the card. 

Using the pink card stock, I cut a border and placed it just below the washi tape. Then I wrapped some ribbon around the washi tape and the border and tied a knot.   If you did not receive the February KOTM, you could use any of the patterned papers in the kit for the same effect.

The sentiment is my favorite part. I love creating cards where the sentiment is the focus. I used my dies to cut the shape. While the shape was still in the die, I used my .05 multiliner to create an edge. I used my Copic Marker, G28, to color around the edges of the cut shape. Then I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine in OnyxBlack. 

It may seem a little backwards, but I like to put the card face together first, and then adhere it to my card base. I feel like it is a cleaner look on the edges and inside of the card.
