Applique' Card by JustRite!

Good morning! The weather in the Windy City has been glorious the past two days! The humidity is very low, and for the first time all summer, I was able to open up the house and turn the air off! I love listening to the summer noises....lawnmowers, kids, cicadas, birds singing.....all of it!

I have a little card to share with you today. It measures 3 x 3 and was cut out using the Spellbinder's scalloped square. I then left the die on, and ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. This leaves the edges embossed-free! I stamped JustRite's Applique Decorative Centers twice with Versamark and embossed it using white embossing powder. I colored it with my Copics. I cut out the center and placed it on a pop dot. I cut that out using a smaller Spellbinder's scalloped square and a piece of Hibiscus felt behind it. (Papertrey Ink) I added a ribbon from Papertrey, a button, and a few rhinestones for the middle.
I hope you have a fantastic day!!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!!!
