ID: MC Oct/11 - Circle Park Scene -Peace card
6"w x 6"h

Created: October 14, 2011

The card started with cutting out the lamp post and needing to make a mainly black and cream card... and you guessed it - the rest evolved.

I'm also using part of an Xmas stamp from Quietfire Design

I started with a regular 5 x 7" cream card, then used my circle cutter to cut it into a 5 x 6" circle (leaving me the fold in my card). Cut another cream full 6" circle and adhered it on top of my card after stamping the tree/bird image (Local King Rubber "Silence 1") with Versafine Black Onyx.

I cut the lamp post out from black cardstock and embossed it with Judi Kins Rustique Tin Can (my new favorite embossing powder). Adhered it to card.

I needed my bench situated in this position rather than what the actual stamped image would give me so - stamped the bench (Flourishes "Around the Arbor" set #94) using the black onto a blank piece of rubber, then stamping that onto my scrap cream cardstock, embossed with black embossing powder, cut out and adhered.

Stamped the poinsettias (Flourishes "Doves & Holly" set #69) on cream cardstock, colored with Tombows, cut out and adhered to lamp post. Hand drew and cut out the clay pot, colored with Tombow, adhered to card and added one of the poinsettia cut outs. Added glossy accents to the berries and used a Sakura Yellow glaze pen on the lamp post. Added Aleene's True Snow in and around the bench and lamp post. as a final touch, used some brown curling ribbon and colored it with a black I-Denti pen (didn't have black curling ribbon - sigh!!). Tied a couple knots, split the ribbons in half and curled them.

Stamped my quote (only used the bottom half of the quote) with the black.
