"On The Edge" cards

At a recent stamping/crop day, I finally got the chance to use the new Wishes Card Confidence Program book from Close To My Heart (CTMH). Both of these cards use papers from the Bella paper packet, following the 'On The Edge' template from page 53 of the Wishes book. The idea of using a large circle for one of the patterned paper pieces really appealed to me as it is something that I have not done before. The Coluzzle circle template was used to create the large circle, then it was placed on the card, and scissors were used to trim the overhanging edges even with the straight edge. I think this gives a 'fun' and unique dimension to the card.

This first card uses the With Love stamp set with Hollyhock and Olive ink, and is a very quick card to complete. The Just Blooms paper flowers from the Autumn Daisy collection work perfectly with the Bella papers.
This large 'smile' sentiment is my favorite image from the September Word Puzzle. As you can see, this card uses the same papers, colors, and Wishes template - only change is the orientation, stamped image, and embellishment. Another very quick card to complete.
