Thank You Round and Round

Thank You Round and Round
This card is specially made for my manager to thank him on his recommendation for my salary increment recently. I am really grateful for his kind recommendation.

Close-up : Lot of circles
I starts off stamping the big dotted circle randomly on the white card stock using a light green ink. The small dotted circle is then stamped inside the big dotted circle using a darker green ink. Another circle design stamp is stamped using red ink in between the spaces of the big dotted circles. Four (4) of the corners are rounded accordingly. Later, I distressed the edges to give some vintage look.


A purple strip is trimmed and two (2) of the corners are rounded accordingly before adding some faux stitching using black marker. I distressed the edges as well. The stamped background and the purple strip are attached onto a green card base as in the sketch which earlier has been distressed.

Close-up : Sentiment and buttons
The sentiment is stamped on a yellow circle which later some faux stitching are added using black marker. Again, I distressed the edges as well. The circle is later attach onto the card base using dimensional foam. On top and bottom of the circle, two (2) blue buttons with tied string are attached which complete design of the sketch.

Close-up : Green and red gems
I added some green gems to the center of the big dotted circle and some red gems to the small circle to finish off the card. I think I either over distress this card or used wrong distress ink as the result is not turned out so well as I imagined.

Dimension : 10.16cm x 15.24cm or 4" x 6"
Type : Horizontal fold
Inlay : None
